PRODUCT SAFETY WARNINGS

YOUR ATTENTION IS PARTICULARLY DRAWN TO THIS SECTION

We take the health and safety of mother and baby very seriously, and prior to product launch BellaMoon® has been independently user tested by experts at an Infant Sleep Lab.  We have also considered guidance issued by the Lullaby Trust, a UK based charitable organisation, which aims to raise awareness of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and provide expert advice on safer sleep for babies. We also follow guidance issued by the American Academy of Pediatrics about sleep safety for infants.

Lateral breastfeeding in BellaMoon is suitable under full supervision by an awake and alert adult from 0-18 months.

BellaMoon products are not recommended for co-sleeping.

Research on bed sharing shows an increased risk of SIDS between 2 and 3 months.  This is a particularly vulnerable time, as babies lack good head control and are unable to control their airways.  Therefore, particular care should be taken with babies under 4 months old.

BellaMoon is not a cot, or a sleep positioner.  We have set out some important guidance below that should be borne in mind when using BellaMoon®. Failure to follow these warnings and guidance could result in death or serious injury.

Placing Baby in BellaMoon®

It is recommended to always place your baby on his back while in BellaMoon® Full Moon and Half Moon Nursing Nest. Generally, experts recommend that until approximately 8 months old, babies must always be placed to sleep on their backs, to reduce the risk of SIDS.

When baby is awake, supervised tummy time under full supervision from you is fine and recommended for healthy development. Please note that BellaMoon® is not designed as a baby positioner, or to prevent a baby from rolling over.

Sleeping Beside Baby – IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ

BellaMoon® Full Moon and Half Moon Nursing Nest must always be used in a child-safe and "supervised environment". A supervised environment is one in which an awake adult is resting next to or breast-feeding baby. The products are not intended for solo sleeping or to function as co-sleeping products.

If you are afraid of falling asleep next to baby whilst resting, please set an alarm or have a partner check on you to reduce this risk. Once lateral breastfeeding is complete and baby has latched off, in accordance with advice provided by the Lullaby Trust, babies should be placed in a separate cot or Moses basket to sleep.

Placement of BellaMoon® Full Moon or Half Moon Nursing Nest

Please place BellaMoon on a flat, firm and stable supported surface, such as an adequately sized adult bed or mattress, where the risk of it tipping or falling is minimised.

NEVER USE BELLAMOON® IN A CRIB OR OUTDOOR SETTING.

NEVER USE BELLAMOON® ON A SOFA.

We recommend that you keep BellaMoon® in the same area where you sleep as parents to reduce any risk to baby.  After breastfeeding is completed and baby has latched off, babies should be returned to their separate safe sleeping surface.

Do NOT leave baby lying in BellaMoon without the immediate presence of Mother directly adjacent. Due to the breastfeeding nature of BellaMoon, babies will seek a mother’s breast therefore could move out of position in search of mother if she is not immediately adjacent.

Once baby is able to turn from back to front by herself (around 3-4 months), make sure not to place any function of BellaMoon® in an elevated position where baby risks hurting herself if she manages to climb out. Baby should be supervised at all times. It is also important to keep baby inside the BellaMoon® enclosure. 

Placing Items within BellaMoon®
As noted in our user guide, it is very important to keep BellaMoon® clear of loose items, such as toys, crib bumpers, pillows and blankets. The Lullaby Trust recommends the use of wearable blankets, such as sleeping bags, to avoid any risk of SIDS associated with loose blankets.
You should never use the BellaMoon® Mother’s Pillow during the night.

When not to use BellaMoon®

You must not use BellaMoon®, or share a bed with your baby in general, if you are a smoker, are morbidly obese, have been drinking alcohol, if you take medication or drugs that make you drowsy or otherwise significant impair or impact you, or if you feel exhausted.

Similarly, you must not use BellaMoon® with babies who were born premature (37 weeks or less) or if your baby was born at a low weight (2.5kg or 5½ lbs or less).

Regular Checking:

Always check your BellaMoon regularly for damages, in particular, check for any loose or pulled sewing threads, any loose zips and please ensure that the removable plastic fin is intact.

Anti-Roll Fin: 

Please use the Anti-Roll Fin with care.  Keep it away from older children or anyone who may accidentally tamper it with force.  Whereas it has been designed to assist in preventing gentle rolling from the sides, it is a non-load-bearing fin which is not intended to be used as a mechanism to take the full weight of a person. For example, when switching feeding sides, you should not apply your weight vertically down through the fin when pushing yourself off the bed.

We recommend checking the Anti-Roll Fin on a regular basis to ensure no cracks or damages have appeared. If you require a replacement, please contact BellaMoon at info@bellamoon.co or via our contact page.
