Is it safe to use a blanket over the Swaddle UP™?

We recommend that it is safest to avoid all loose blankets in the cot and instead add extra layers underneath your Swaddle UP™.

Detailed Answer

If you do choose to use a blanket it is crucial that you follow SIDs and KIDs guidelines in relation to using blankets in the cot: 

It’s recommended that you follow First Candle guidelines in relation to using blankets in a crib. Do not put anything soft, loose or fluffy in your baby’s sleep space. This includes pillows, blankets, comforters, soft or pillow-like bumpers, stuffed animals and other soft items. Use a sleep sack or other type sleeper instead of blankets to keep your baby warm and safe.
