Protecting Your Newborn With The Snugglish Baby Floor Seat
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Moms Affiliate for Totlings . All opinions expressed are 100% mine.
As a mother of a baby that was born just last week, I know first hand how important it is to make sure I am fully informed of all of the ways I can keep my newborn healthy. Even though this is my third baby, there is still that overwhelming sense of worry when she cries… is she crying “just because” or is there something more serious going on? I can recall the first time I was up all night with a crying baby and I distinctly remember thinking that something just had to be wrong with her! I also remember the nights where she slept contently and I would hold my hand over her chest just to make sure she was still breathing. That was quite some time ago and there is so much more information for new parents to help ease their worries and better understand if there is something more serious going on with your newborn. There are also some really great baby products out now to help you protect your newborn and I am so excited to introduce one to you today! The Snugglish Baby Floor Seat is the perfect baby product to help ease and avoid some of the following common infant ailments:
Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER)
“Over 50% of newborns experience acid reflux at some point during the first 6 months” (Lawrence. A PhD). It takes about 100 days of life for a child’s digestive system to become fully developed. Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) occurs when stomach contents flow back up into the esophagus. Proper positioning of the babies head and body can drastically reduce GER and discomfort.
⇒Snugglish is lab tested to improve the positioning of the baby in an inclined surface to help reduce the likelihood of GER
Some babies are born with easily collapsible cartilage in the larynx. This cartilage can sometimes collapse inward when your child breathes in (CHW.org) Laryngomalacia (LER) s a congenital softening of the tissues of the larynx (voice box) above the vocal cords. LER manifests itself as the main source of noisy breathing in infants. Presence of GER (upward moving of stomach content) worsens the onset of LER. Proper positioning of baby after meals helps reduce the risks of further inflammation
⇒Snugglish patented slanted design helps reduce the risks of LER
Nearly 47% of all new born babies have flat spots in their heads(USA today, NBC, AAP) ! Plagiocephaly is a condition that causes a baby’s head to have a flat spot (flat head syndrome) or be misshapen.The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that infants sleep on their backs to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related deaths. (AAP) As a result, pediatricians have seen an increase in the number of children with positional plagiocephaly, or positional skull deformities (flat heads) (AAP) A recent study of the Seattle Children’s Hospital showed that infants with misshapen heads had significantly lower mean scores on neurodevelopmental tests, (Speltz. M. L. et al. PhD)
⇒Snugglish is designed to offer a non-flat surface to help prevent elongated exposure to flat surfaces such as a crib.
SIDS is the leading cause of death among infants 1 month to 1 year old, and claims the lives of about 2,500 each year in the United States. It remains unpredictable despite years of research. (babycenter)
As parents we can only take necessary precautionary steps to reduce the likelihood of risks, according to SIDS.org these are:
1. Don’t expose your baby to any smoke
2. Never fall asleep with your baby in your bed or in a chair or sofa
3. The baby should be placed in a crib with no cover, pillows, bumper pads or positioning devices
4. Always place your baby, day or night on his back to sleep.
⇒Snugglish features a safety harness to lock your baby in on his back and correct positional displacements and accidental rolling
