Check list for a "Tizzie Baby"

Below you will find Tizzies’ list of ‘Ideal’ products you need for your baby. You will also find some links to videos of Tizzie exlaining her reason behind recommending some of the advice she does and how to implement her recommendations and use the products she recommends.
(Please note this is an ideal list and we are aware not all families will be able to purchase all things but it will give you an indication of what Tizzie recommends)

Cot – for more information on choosing a safe cot please read this article –

Cot Mattress – Tizzie recommends a firm, well fitted mattress which when placed inside the cot has no gaps around the edge between the mattress and the cot bars and also which passes the safe hand test. This is where you press your hand down firmly on the sleeping surface and then remove your hand. If you can still see your hand print when you have removed your hand then the sleeping surface is too soft. Here is short video of Tizzie discussing the importance of a good cot mattress -

Bedding guide - This is a ‘must have’ guide to ensure you can correctly implement and follow Tizzies’ routines. Tizzie has found one of the main reasons babies do not settle and sleep well in their beds is because they are not warm and snug enough to sleep well. This guide explains exactly how Tizzie recommends to dress your baby and what bedding to use in different climates and different room temperatures. The bedding guide is emailed complimentary with all book purchases from the Save Our Sleep® ® Store or available for purchase as a downloadable PDF for $9.00 - Here is a short video of Tizzie discussion safe bedding -

Room thermometer – It is very important that you always know the room temperature in your baby’s nursery so you can use Tizzies’ safe bedding guide and know how many blankets you should start with. It is important that you measure your baby’s room temperature at cot level as close to your baby’s cot as possible. Refer to the Safe Bedding Guide for further details.

Safe mattress protector – Tizzie does NOT recommend using a waterproof mattress protector. Tizzie has tested practically all the mattress protectors on the market and found only one that did not cause a baby to sweat. This was the BAMBI 100% cotton mattress protector. Tizzie has now liaised with the company to have these protectors branded with the Save Our Sleep® ® brand and packaged with Save Our Sleep® ® packing which provides a large amount of information on the back. If you do not want to use a mattress protector then Tizzie recommends using a 100% cotton or bamboo towel on top of the mattress. Link to Tizzies’ mattress protector -

Bamboo or cotton sheets – ideally Tizzie recommends bamboo sheets as they absorb any liquid/spills 75% better than cotton. However if you budget does not stretch to bamboo then 100% cotton sheets are also fine. Here is a link to the linen available in the online store -

Bamboo blankets – Tizzie has done extensive testing on baby’s bedding and only recommends 100% cotton or bamboo blankets or a blend of bamboo and cotton. Tizzie has found that 100% bamboo blankets or a blanket with a bamboo blend will keep babies cosier in bed. 100% cotton blankets are also fine to use but you may need to use more layers as they do not provide as high a tog value as blankets with a bamboo blend. More information regarding blankets and layering can be found in the bedding guide. Here is as link to the Save Our Sleep® ® recommended Blankets in the online store -

Safe Baby sleeping bag? - Tizzie believes from the age of 8 weeks it is very important to include a safe sleep bag as part of your baby’s clothing for bed. A sleeping bag not only helps to keep your baby comfortably warm it also helps delay your baby rolling in their bed. The tog that is recommended depends on the age of the baby and if you are swaddling or not. More information can be found in the Safe Bedding Guide. Currently there is only one sleeping bag on the market that meets Tizzies’ safety standards. Here is the link to the online store -

Swaddle – Tizzie believes it is very important to swaddle your baby until your baby can roll while swaddled. Tizzie recommends a few different swaddles and they can be found here in the online store - For further information on why Tizzie recommends swaddling please read the following article - or refer to pages 64-66 To see exactly how Tizzie recommends to swaddle a baby over a sleeping bag and put your baby to bed please watch the following video - If you have an older child the next video will also provide you with some instruction -

Comforter Tizzie spends a lot of time warning parents from introducing a negative sleep aid such as rocking, patting, sucking on a dummy. However Tizzie feels it is very important that your baby has a positive sleep aid and therefore recommends you introduce a safe baby comforter to your baby as soon as possible. Here is an article where Tizzie discusses comforters further - Tizzies’ range of safe baby comforters can be viewed here -

Bodysuit – Tizzie recommends that all babies wear a bodysuit under their babygro. The age of your baby and if your baby is still swaddled depends on what type of bodysuit. For a baby who is swaddled it is recommended to use a short sleeve bodysuit and for a baby who is no longer swaddled Tizzie recommends a long sleeve bodysuit. Here is a link to some of Tizzies’ recommended bodysuits -

Babygro – A babygro is what Tizzie recommends all children wear when sleeping over a bodysuit until at least the age of two. A babygro has long arms, long legs and with or without feed. Here is a link to some babygro’s in the store -?

We hope this helps clarify some common questions that we get asked regarding what Tizzie recommends you need for your baby.
