Safe Sleeping Guidelines

Safe sleeping is really important to Riff Raff Baby. We strongly advocate all parents follow the safe sleeping guidelines created by The Red Nose Foundation to reduce the chances of SIDS. These guidelines are recommended to be followed with children up until they are 7 months old in Australia. 
  1. Sleep your baby on their back: not on their tummy or side.
  2. Keep your baby’s head and face uncovered: Covering a baby’s face or head with clothing such as a hat increases the risk of sudden infant death
  3. Keep your baby smoke free before and after birth: Help to quit smoking is available from your doctor, midwife or by contacting Quitline
  4. Have a safe sleeping environment night and day: Make sure the mattress is firm, clean and flat, in a safe cot that meets industry standards. Make sure there are no blankets, toys, pillows, or bumpers in the cot.
  5. Sleep your baby in your room: The safest place to sleep your baby for the first 12 months is in a safe cot next to your bed.
If you are not from Australia, we encourage you to follow the safe sleeping guidelines of your countries sleep authority. 
Riff Raff Baby Sleep Toys have been designed with a safety tether.  Simply tether to the crib rails out of the baby sleep area so that the infant can see and hear the toy. Learn more about these sensory cues here. The child will still create beneficial visual and audio associations during sleep whilst remaining safe.
We recommend offering the toy to your child, under adult supervision, if your child is under the age of 7 months old.
Our Sleep Toys have been approved under the vigorous standards of AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2002 (toys for children up to and including 36 months of age) with an intended age from 0+.
