Safety Guidelines & Tips
Babies should only be placed on their back to rest for their first year of life. Babies may fall asleep anytime, even unexpectedly. Accordingly, aside from tummy time, babies less than one year of age should always be placed on their back in the nest.
- “Bare is best" : no blankets, pillows or other objects in the baby’s resting environment. Never place a nest near a window with blind, curtain cords or baby monitor cords.
- Tummy Time: Baby nest is an ideal spot to watch your little one spend active time on their tummies? To practice safe tummy time, you must directly supervise your baby. Place the baby near the head of the nest with their arms over the edge. Never place your baby on his/her tummy to rest.
- Be present: Stay with your baby at all times when he/she in the nest . It might seem like your baby will never become mobile but you never know when your baby will start to crawl. Baby nest is not a bassinet, play yard, or crib – it does not have high sides to contain the baby.
Never carry in nest: Babies should not be carried inside the nest. While baby nests themselves are portable, they are not designed for carrying your little ones. If you want to transport your nest, remove your baby before moving the nest.
Keep it Flat: Nests should only be placed on a firm, flat and stable surface from which the baby cannot fall.
