Safe Bedding Practices for Babies

For babies under 12 months, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Nation Institute of Child Health and Human Development recommend the following to help reduce the risk of SIDS:

    1. Place baby on his/her back on a firm, tight-fitting mattress in a crib that meets current safety standards.


    2. Remove pillows, quilts, comforters, sheepskins, pillow-like stuffed toys and other pillow-like soft products from the crib.


    3. Consider using a sleeper as an alternative to blankets with no other covering.


    4. If using a blanket, put baby with his or her feet at the foot of the crib. Tuck a thin blanket around the crib mattress, only as far as the baby's chest.


    5. Make sure your baby's head remains uncovered during sleep.


    6. Do not place baby on a waterbed, sofa, soft mattress, pillow or other soft surface to sleep.


What are we doing at Sweet Dreams My Child to look out for the safety of your baby? All of the crib bedding and baby products that we carry is from manufactures who are in compliance with all current safety standards of the JPMA.

More Ideas for Decorating in an Owl Theme

Owl themed rooms are fun and whimsical. Do a little shopping at your local thrift or craft store for some fun owl accessories. Try to bring in some accessories that are unique to add to the whimsical look and feel.

Add a tree to your room. Owl bedding is perfect for a nature themed room and what do we love from nature more than trees? You can try your own had and paint a tree on your wall or hire someone to paint a tree. There are also many large tree decals that you can peel and stick to your walls. Try Styleywalls on Etsy for some adorable large tree wall decals.

Add other natural elements such as a large vase with twigs for a kids bedroom. Or make some leaf rubbings with your child in turquoise and lime, frame them and hang them on the wall.

We hope these ideas will help get you started on your owl themed nursery or bedroom!
