In the safe sleep section you have advised "bunny rugs and blankets" should not be used for swaddling as it may lead to overheating. Could you please advise what a bunny rug is, I have purchased "Cotton Jersey Wraps" for my newborn, and concerned that these may be inappropriate for use (they measure 120x120cm). Thank you, Jas

A bunny rug is a blanket, which may contribute to overheating.
This is why Red Nose recommends cotton or muslin as a wrap.
