Some babies find it difficult to sleep at 30 degrees but can't sleep flat so we created the 15 degree wedge (all accessories from the Baby AR Pillow are removable for use on the 15 degree wedge pillow)
By utilizing the 30 and 15 degree wedges your baby will achieve the 30 degree angle in the Prone or Supine position in their crib. Your baby can sleep safely and securely on a straight plane with the body and legs on the same plain. The Prone and Supine, straight plane position, is usually only necessary for premature babies or babies with severe reflux The crib mattress will not need to be elevated to a potentially dangerous height in the crib in order to achieve a 30 degree angle. Place The 15 degree wedge on top of the mattress elevates the baby in the Prone or Supine position and the placement of the 30 degree wedge under the mattress actually elevates the mattress about 15 degrees. This type of positioning does not put strain on the infant’s groin. Here’s how (see pictures below)
The harness must come up to the Baby's chest while on it's back and up to just below it's shoulder while on it's stomach. We sell 4 sizes of harness s-m-l-xl the harness pictured is medium. Make sure you can place a finger in the harness on waist, chest or back harness to ensure it is not too tight or loose. Tug the harness to make sure it is secured well to the wedge and tug the wedge to insure it is secured tightltly to the crib. We do not recommend Tummy sleeping unless recommended by the doctor or supervised by an adult.
We have 4 sizes available so please refer to the measuring chart so you get the size most suited to your baby (this product comes with the Medium harness).Harness sizes are not based on weight or age. The size is based on the length of the baby's torso. To determine which size is best for your baby measure from baby's bottom up to baby's chest (underarm height) since the harness goes across the baby's chest. You can purchase a harness that is longer than this length and roll it downward. Do not use a harness that is smaller than this length. The purpose to crossing the chest is to keep the baby securely in place so that he/she does not sit-up or roll over.
Small-up to 11 inches torso length
Important Facts: All AR Pillow wedge reflux products for babies are designed to safely and naturally relieve reflux & colic babies using the IDEAL 30 degree angle . . . they are MOST preferred by medical professionals and hospital feeding specialists for the following reasons:
Due to the safety features built in -- particularly, the removable & adjustable head ring which safely and securely supports the baby's head -- especially preemies & newborns MUST have their little heads held securely!!!! -- AR Pillow products are designed with headrings (placed beneath the pillow sheet) with safety in mind!
The ideal 30 degree angle (and 15 degree wedge when 30 is too high or 45 degrees is needed) -- many competitive products or alternative solutions use inferior angles in their design -- wedge designs with too small angles are a useless waste of money (ineffective at best).
Cost effective -- the AR Pillow has a superior design with economies of scale built into the production lines providing an affordable natural solution for parents who want to help their babies to stop suffering. Additionally, some babies seem to take forever to grow out of their reflux -- this pillow has 4 different sized harnesses so your baby will outgrown his/her reflux before he /she outgrows our pillow. Additionally once the baby no longer needs the pillow the headring, harness and pillowsheet can be removed so that it can be used as a Child/Adult wedge for anyone in the family. Great for use when you have a cold, sinus issues, sleep apnea or post surgical elevation.
