How do I know if the batteries are low?


You may refer to the battery indicator on the LCD display panel of your SafetoSleep200.


With typical 15-hour per day use, the batteries will last approximately 30 days. We recommend using lithium rechargeable batteries for best performance and environmental consideration, but alkaline batteries are compatible as well.

When my baby is sleeping on the SafetoSleep mat, the alarm goes off intermittently. Why is this so?

SafetoSleep is designed to alert you the moment your baby’s breathing patterns become irregular so you can take steps to check on your baby as soon as possible. In younger infants, slow or shallow breathing is very common and perfectly normal. The SafetoSleep mat is sensitive enough to detect these events and alerts you to check on your baby just in case.

In the unlikely event that slow breathing alarm goes off, stay calm and attend to your baby quickly. You can help your baby breathe better by rubbing your baby's stomach gently with an up and down motion and rub or tickle your baby's sole. You may also pick up your baby and hold your baby against your body while giving your baby a backrub with an up and down motion to encourage your baby to breathe.

How do I care for and maintain my SafetoSleep200 mat?

Use a lint roller to clean the product. Avoid using any harsh detergents or cleaning agents. Please take not that the product is not waterproof or splashproof. Batteries should also be removed if the product will be left unused for a significant time.
