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® Day-Bed and Baby-Pod. 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® Day-Bed and Baby-Pod 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® Day-Bed or Baby-Pod
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).

What BellaMoon Mums have to say

“I felt that my baby and I were so comfortable and supported. It was soft enough, yet firm enough to support him”

Emma and her baby boy

“I really felt incredibly supported. Baby was comfortable, breastfed normally and it helped baby to position himself without me holding on to him. I was able to use my normal side-lying position with the added bonus of feeling well-supported. Would definitely purchase and recommend for supportive feeding.”

Sophie and her baby boy

“I love the removable wedge - it was so comfortable.  Plus I liked the option to remove it too for extra close snuggles.”

 Sarah and her baby boy

"Baby was extremely content and was able to take his time feeding. The mothers support is extremely comfortable. It made me feel cocooned.  I also injured my coccyx during delivery so it gave me great support whilst feeding."

Lucy and her baby girl

“I love that there are multiple features in the one product – otherwise I would be buying these separately. Very comfortable for Mum and baby very happy!”

Catherine and her baby girl

“It is so lovely to feel relaxed when breastfeeding on my side instead of my neck and shoulders being in pain. Very easy to set up and use.”

Karen and her baby girl

“I love the design, it really improved my ability to feed on my side - I was able to feed easily and I was much more relaxed and comfortable when doing so.”

Teresa and her baby girl

“I love the baby pod for me in particular, having a barrier between baby and I when my wife is breastfeeding on her side makes me happier about night-time feeding.”

Martin, Rebecca and their baby boy
