Yes the LifeNest design is adapted to babies from birth to 5 month old (up to 20Lbs max)
Yes, the LifeNest has been designed to be used only in a regular cot. For safety reasons, this product should never be used outside the cot and the cot mattress must be placed in the lowest position.
The LifeNest is intended to be used only for babies from birth to 5 month old. Stop using the LifeNest when the baby is able to stand up. The cot mattress must be placed in the lowest position.
No, the revolutionary LifeNest belongs to a new device category, the Sleeping System for babies. It is not a baby positioner as it doesn’t includes bolsters. It is so safe it is used in many hospitals’ neo-natal units including for premature babies
Over the past several years, pediatricians have seen an increase in the number of children with cranial asymmetry, particularly unilateral flattening of the back of the head (occiput). Currently, deformational plagiocephaly has reached epidemic proportions.
This increase is likely attributable to parents following the NHS and American Academy of Pediatrics “Back-to-Sleep” positioning recommendations aimed at decreasing the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
Despite declines in prevalence during the past two decades, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) continues to be the leading cause of death for infants aged between 1 month and 1 year in developed countries.
No-one knows exactly what causes SIDS, but it is thought to be the result of a combination of factors. Experts believe SIDS occurs at a particular stage in a baby’s development, and that it affects babies who are vulnerable to certain environmental stresses. This vulnerability may be due to being born prematurely or to low birthweight, or other reasons not yet identified. Current medical and scientific evidence explains SIDS as a multifactorial disorder arising from a combination of genetic, metabolic, and environmental factors
Large-scale epidemiological studies over the last two decades have increased our understanding of SIDS and identified certain modifiable risk factors – that is risk factors parents can take action to prevent. The most important modifiable risk factors for SIDS are infants sleeping in the prone position (face down) and maternal smoking during pregnancy. Risk factors identified in these studies include:
An article in The American Academy of Pediatrics divides risk factors into two categories:
The authors studied SIDS cases in San Diego County after the initiation of the Back To Sleep campaign. They note that most SIDS infants were subject to at least 1 intrinsic risk factor and at least 2 extrinsic risks. They advocate risk reduction campaigns emphasising the importance of multiple and simultaneous SIDS risks as essential in preventing SIDS: that is reducing as many risk factors as possible.
Babies who die of SIDS are thought to have problems in the way they respond to these stresses and how they regulate their heart rate, breathing and temperature. Although the cause of SIDS is not fully understood, there are things you can do to reduce the risk (see below).
Follow the advice below to helps prevent SIDS:

The LifeNest sleeping system is designed help eliminate many of the environmental risk factors that have been linked to SIDS through large-scale epidemiological studies. As most SIDS cases appear to be multifactorial (15), we believe in eliminating as many of the known risks as possible.
