Co-Sleeping

The safety of our littlest customers is at the top of our priorities here at The Mompreneur LLC. Seeing that we do not know your child as well as you or their doctor, we believe that a consultation with your pediatrician regarding sleeping arrangements is of utmost importance.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has resolved that the safest place for baby to sleep, over their first year, is in a crib, bassinet or play yard in their parents’ bedroom.

The Mompreneur LLC realizes that many people have differing views on co-sleeping, such as children should never sleep with adults in their bed, while others think that it offers great benefits. The vast majority who do choose to co-sleep with the JoJo Lounger notice that the sides help create a separate space for the child and parent(s).

Please note the following precautions, while using the JoJo Lounger as a co-sleeper:

  1. Never authorize a child to co-sleep with anyone who suffers from a sleep disorder, is under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medication or is obese. Confirm that each adult in the bed is aware of the child’s presence.

  2. Deliberately make the bed. Situate the JoJo Lounger on a firm mattress, with sheets and blankets pulled snug. Confirm that it will lay flat and stays flat with adult(s) in the bed. Each adult should use separate blankets to reduce the risk of blankets being pulled up and over the baby.

  3. To lessen the possibility of SIDS, place baby only on their back.

  4. Do not add blankets or padding under baby in the JoJo Lounger.

  5. Keep cords and strings away from baby; such as window or blind cords present a strangulation risk.

  6. Never leave baby alone in an adult bed.

My baby sleeps best on his or her stomach or side - is that alright?

Your baby should be put only on their back while in the JoJo Lounger. Babies who sleep on their stomachs have a higher rate of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Because of this, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that babies be put to sleep on their backs during the first year of life.

Additionally, blankets or pillows should not be around, under, or over the baby to lessen the possibility of SIDS. Pediatricians suggest that when baby is fully capable of rolling from back to stomach and back again that is when the infant may remain in any sleep position that they choose.

We always recommend you check with your pediatrician regarding the best options to put your baby to sleep.
