Babymoov Bibed Smokey Sleep Positioner
Recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization), the best sleeping position for a 0-12 months old baby is the Back Position.
Whilst sleeping, baby’s face remains unobstructed, limiting the risks of incorrect swallowing, breathlessness, hyperthermia and SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). This recommendation isn’t without its disadvantages, well known by pediatricians, such as the Plagiocephaly. But solutions exist!
A baby’s skull remains very malleable up to around the age of one. Spending lots of hours asleep on their back (as recommended) means the weight of their head lies practically always in the same area which could give rise to what is called the flat head syndrome or positional plagiocephaly.
Bibed opens airway and balanced digestive system thanks to an anti-reflux sleeping position tilted by 12°. It avoids the Moro reflex (startle reflex) and ensures a better quality of sleep thanks to wrapping the baby in the semi-foetal position. There is a strap to hold the baby in place. Thanks to freedom of movement for the head, it prevents flat-head risks. A carry-bag is also included.
Bibed was designed by an osteopath:«I have been seeing newborn babies in my osteopath studio for over 20 years. One of the reasons for the visits that increased incredibly since 1994 was associated with skull deformations related to regularly sleeping on the back (flat head syndrome or plagiocephaly) This clinical experience on hundreds of infants led me to this obvious fact: there was a need to find a solution to prevent it. However, I wanted to offer newborn babies a real way of sleeping adapted to this position on the back, though it also needed to ensure their comfort and even improve their life style and that of their parents.»Alain Gauthier
