Frequently asked questions


The Faniks Baby Sleeper is safe when used as directed. Please read and follow the warning instruction that comes with the sleeper. Also read the Infant Sleep basics information and other educational instruction on our website. When we decided to share our sleeper with mothers, safety was our number one priority. We know that our sleeper is comfortable. We believe it may keep babies sleeping on their back, prolong their sleep duration and reduce their risk of spitting up. But more importantly, an infant mattress must be safe. To answer this safety question, before our first sale, we donated the first fifty mattresses to new mothers and we didn’t get any complaints about any adverse events from these mothers. Also, a pediatrician designed our sleeper, so safety in the design was as important for us as comfort. Our initial product had baby restraints. We removed this because we felt that a restraint may cause a baby to be trapped in uncomfortable position therefore increasing the baby’s risk of strangulation or other adverse events. This has happened in the past with some infant sleep products with restraint that were recalled. Healthy babies have the innate capacity to move when uncomfortable; a restraint, we believe, will limit a baby’s movement when uncomfortable. We also looked at different fabrics before deciding on the current cover fabric that we use based on its safety features. It has a TPU laminate that acts as a barrier to dust mite and thus makes it hypoallergenic, it is also free of lead, phthalates, fire retardant and other chemicals that could be harmful to your baby. This sleeper complies with the CPSC as well as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) (F3118-15) standard safety specification for infant inclined sleep products. Our foam manufacturer is certified by CentiPUR-US certification for flexible polyurethane foam products. The mattress is made of high-density materials, and is free of lead, phthalates, fire retardant and other chemicals that could be harmful to your baby.

The Faniks Baby sleeper is an infant inclined sleep product, intended to provide sleeping accommodations for an infant up to approximately 5 months of age. We designed BabyComfort sleeper to help babies sleep well on their backs. BabyComfort sleeper was invented out of necessity. Your baby's comfort is our mission and your baby needs a good night sleep as well.

We recommend using the sleeper as a standalone product on the floor. It may be placed inside a suitable sized bassinet. It will fit into all bassinets sized 16 × 31 inches, and can be adjusted to fit most bassinets within one inch of these dimensions. It should not be placed on the bed or inside an infant crib. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) doesn’t recommend co-sleeping with babies on the bed. Please read the attached instructional manual that comes with your sleeper and keep it for future reference.

Can be used for newborn babies until up to 5 months old, or when the infant begins to roll over or when the infant is 10 kg (22 lbs.) or more, whichever comes first.

We wish we could answer this question with a reassuring “Yes!” Unfortunately, the simple answer is “No.” No sleeper in the world can cure your baby’s reflux without consideration of the other factors that contribute to the reflux such as feeding, positioning, and prematurity. Reflux in newborn babies has many causes, and there isn’t a simple one-time fix solution for it. Just like an adult dealing with diabetes, there isn’t a single magic pill that will cure a person's diabetes without that person initiating appropriate lifestyle changes. We know that reflux is also related to sleeping positioning. Several studies have shown that the inclined sleeping position improves a baby’s reflux. You can do your own simple research as well: Just ask any pregnant mother about what sleeping position she feels most comfortable without having heartburn? Most of them will tell you they sleep most comfortably when inclined and propped against three or four blankets or when sleeping on their left side. However, the left-sided position isn’t suitable for babies because of the risk of SIDS. The American academy has strong recommendations against babies sleeping on any positions other than their backs. Please don’t lay your baby down to sleep on their sides or stomach. It’s important for your baby to always sleep on their backs. That said, we have anecdotal evidence that our sleeper will improve your baby’s spitting up; however, anecdotal evidence isn’t research. Our initial research was inconclusive, and we plan to get a third party unbiased third party research in future as soon as we have the means. We also know that reflux is related to the volume of feeding. That’s why we have developed and provided the Faniks Baby feeding app to help you calculate your babies feeding based on their age and weight. Hopefully, with appropriate feeding sizes and the proper sleeper, your baby’s reflux should improve. Please read our educational material about reflux and reflux preventions on our blog website: www.babycomfort.com

The Faniks Baby Sleeper should not be placed in the crib or play yard. The sleeper wouldn’t fit perfectly into a crib and the extra area between the sleeper and the crib is a potential risk of entrapment of the baby between the crib sides and the sleeper. Note that the AAP, as well as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), recommends that nothing should be placed in the crib other than the baby. https://faniksbaby.com/pages/reflux
