At Snuggle Me we understand our responsibility as manufacturers to promote safe sleep practices. We continuously work to share resources, product knowledge and safety information with our community, across all platforms.
Snuggle Me products are non-sleep products. They are not designed, marketed or intended for sleep. Sleep includes short naps, cosleeping, and supervised sleep. If a baby falls asleep in a non-sleep product, they should be moved to a safe sleep location immediately. A firm, flat surface (crib or bassinet) is the safest place, and the only place, where infants should be sleeping.
We align ourselves with the CPSC, the AAP, Heath Canada and the Safe Sleep For Babies Act. As new information is released we will continue to amplify the new safety updates so we provide prevalent safety rules, regulations and best practices to every single member of our community.
How to use your Snuggle Me
Use your Snuggle Me for actively engaging, playing, and bonding with your awake little one.
To use your Snuggle Me, lay your baby in the center of the unpadded sling on their back, drape their legs over the bottom end of the lounger. Ensure the baby's body is straight and their chin is not tucked downwards.
Bassinets, cribs, and pack and plays are considered safe sleep spaces. By adding a Snuggle Me to these environments, this changes the safety of the sleep space and creates an unsafe sleep environment.
- Always be within reach of the baby in case they roll or need to be repositioned.
- Always use the Snuggle Me on the floor and on firm, even surfaces.
- Never place the Snuggle Me on/in a bed or any other space used for sleep.
- Never use the Snuggle Me on high surfaces.
- If your baby falls asleep in a non-sleep product, move them to a safe sleep location immediately.
- Never carry the Snuggle Me when your baby is inside.
- Never place blankets or pillows inside the Snuggle Me.
- Never use the Snuggle Me if it is damaged.
- Direct supervision is required. Babies can begin to roll, crawl, or scoot unexpectedly.
For all products, always read and follow product guidance, warnings and assembly instructions, including weight and height restrictions.
