aden + anais proudly sponsors and raises awareness for the CJ Foundation

With the coldest of the winter months now upon us, parents and caregivers are more likely to crank the heating and reach for plush, thick blankets to keep their babies warm. Infants who are overdressed or covered in heavy blankets or many blankets are at higher risk for SIDS.  It is very important for babies to be dressed lightly and comfortably to avoid overheating. The CJ Foundation recommends the use of wearable blankets and sleep-sacks in place of blankets to keep infants warm while sleeping.

aden + anais®, creator of the original muslin swaddling blanket and unique muslin cotton sleeping bags, is proudly sponsoring the CJ Foundation for SIDS and their continuing efforts to educate parents about the importance of not over-bundling and over-heating their infants. Over 2,000 babies in the United States still die of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) each year, and overheating is a leading risk factor. 

In an effort to support the CJ Foundation for SIDS’ mission, aden + anais® began sponsoring the foundation in October 2009 during SIDS Awareness Month. Each aden + anais® product is made of 100% breathable muslin cotton, which allows baby’s body temperature to adjust naturally, reducing the risk of overheating.

The CJ Foundation recently launched its Sleep in Safety, Grow in Style (SSGS) campaign to help educate parents about the importance of designing safe sleeping environments for babies. aden + anais® is working to help the CJ Foundation inform parents of the many ways they can keep their baby safe. While over-heating is one risk-factor for SIDS, SSGS and aden + anais® seek to educate parents about this and the other risk-reducing, precautionary practices:

  • Consider the use of fans to increases ventilation
  • Room temperature should be comfortable for a lightly-clothed adult, approximately 61-67 degree Fahrenheit
  • Cribs should be totally free of all loose blankets, stuffed animals and crib bumpers
  • Lay baby to sleep in an improved crib, on a firm mattress; do not let the baby sleep on soft things, like a couch, pillow, sheepskin, foam pad or waterbed
  • No smoking when pregnant or near baby
  • If possible, breastfeed baby
  • Offer a pacifier at bedtime
  • Co-sleeping should be in the same room but not the same bed or other sleep surface as parents

For more information on aden + anais’® sponsorship of the CJ Foundation, please contact Kristina Junger-Godfrey at Kristina@kjunger.com or 949.720.7062.

I would love to win this because my almost 6 month old daughter still loves to be snugged up in something when she goes to sleep so we're still swaddling her. The problem is that as she is becoming more and more mobile she quickly ends up unswaddled and then I either have to reswaddle her or take the blanket out of her crib which usually wakes her up. I think this could solve that problem!

I would love to win this for my son. We have been swaddling him, because he sleeps best this way, but lately he has been breaking free of his swaddle - even the pre folded velcro swaddles and then pulls them up over his face - so scary! So I would love to try him in a sleepsack

Jennifer M said...

I'd love one for my 6 month old son. He loves his sleeping bags and I haven't tried these yet, but they look comfy and stylish.

Sonya said...

We have a baby on the way, so these would be wonderful!

Emmy*Coffee said...

I like these a lot because I've heard a lot about swaddling but I think swaddlers for sleep are scary, this is MUCH better!
