As a company committed to infant safety, we were pleased to see some of the recent updates the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) made to their Safe Sleep Guidelines. Intended to help parents make the very best decisions, these recommendations include broad, cautionary statements about the safety of weighted sleepwear for babies less than 1 year old. So, to help add clarity, we want to provide some insight into the reasoning behind their recommendations, and how Nested Bean has designed our products accordingly.
Not all weighted sleepwear is created equal
First of all, it’s very important that all infant sleepwear companies adhere to a standardized approach to weighted design, in order to ensure product safety. But to date, regulatory bodies haven’t yet developed those standards, so they’ve been open to interpretation. As a result, the infant sleepwear category now includes a huge array of infant sleepwear products—with weights that range from 30 grams to several pounds.
Choose a light touch
Nested Bean has always erred on the conservative side, so that sleep-deprived parents never need to reach for an unsafe alternative. In 2012, when we pioneered this concept of lightly weighted sleepwear with the Zen Swaddle, we applied it with great restraint, using just 30 grams of weight.
How do we reach that weight? We design our products with safety guidance from top Human Factors Design labs, minimizing the area of the filling to less than 18% of the entire product length, using filling that weighs just 16% of the total product weight, and 0.5-1% the of the body weight of babies in the 0-6 month range.
Taken together, these numbers correspond to the amount of pressure applied by a parent’s reassuring touch when holding their baby. This prompts the baby’s parasympathetic nervous system to relax and fall asleep naturally.
Look for safety testing that goes above and beyond
Nested Bean has always opted to go above and beyond what is required. Our tests include:
Only after passing all tests and exceeding benchmarks are Nested Bean products brought to market.
Trust your instincts
The results speak for themselves: Over the past 10 years, Nested Bean products have delivered safe sleep to over 2 million families—without a single safety incident, while eliciting countless claims of improved sleep from our customers.
As safe sleep safety standards continue to be developed, rest assured we’ll continue to keep you informed. We are grateful for the trust our customers have placed in us‚ and we take it very seriously. We encourage you to remain informed, while trusting your experience and your instincts. Because as loving parents, your natural instincts are your baby’s greatest advantage.
Recorded by artists of all music genres including Bing Crosby, Dolly Parton, Destiny’s Child and Alvin and the Chipmunks, there is still no greater version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer than the one sung by your own child.
Written by Johnny Marks and originally made famous by Gene Autry in 1949, this classic Christmas song was based on a book by the same name. One of the all-time classic Christmas books, the story was created by Robert L. May for the Montgomery Ward department store in 1939 (they handed the book out as a freebie to kids!). The iconic stop-motion animation followed later, in 1964.
All to say, the reindeer outcast with the nose like a lightbulb has been a smash hit with children for decades—you probably remember singing it as a kid yourself. To help you carry on the tradition and teach this iconic song to the next generation, we’ve got you covered below with the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer lyrics. (Or maybe you just need a refresher yourself?)
So pop on your favourite recording for Christmas karaoke with the kids, or sing along as you do some holiday baking or make festive crafts. Belting out holiday tunes is an excellent way to get in the spirit of the season and teach your kids that there’s more to Christmas than presents.
Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glowed.
All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games.
Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say:
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee:
“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!”
