Dress your baby just right for sleep-time.
Scientifically match sleepwear with room conditions to help keep baby safe.
Overheating is a known risk factor for SIDS which is why dressing babies properly for sleep-time is so very important. But for parents everywhere, knowing how to do that has always been a challenge. Neut uses advanced technology and analyses to replace well-meaning but confusing advice with clear, science-based guidance.
What is thermal neutrality?
(And why is it important?)
Simply put, thermal neutrality is that ideal condition of feeling just right…not too hot and not too cold. Babies and adults alike are most comfortable in this state. For infants, however, being thermally neutral goes beyond comfort. It’s about avoiding the very dangerous condition of overheating, as well as preventing hypothermia from underdressing. Maintaining this ideal state not only promotes safe and restful sleep, it allows a baby’s metabolic processes to focus energy on growth and development.

What do you do when the best advIce Is vague and confusIng?
In this day and age, we couldn’t believe parents were still being forced to guess. So we set out to change that by:
Develop easy-to-use technology to give parents clear-cut guidance.
Provide a tool that builds a better understanding of sleepwear and safe sleep.
Spreading the word.
Raise awareness of SIDS and the steps that can be taken to help prevent it.
*People are surprised to learn that over 3500 babies die every year in America due to unsafe sleep environments. As the leading cause of death in infants, SIDS is at the forefront of our work at Neut, and fuels our commitment to raise awareness of unsafe sleep and risk factors—especially overheating—and provide the technology and information parents need to keep their babies safe.
