Oyaco Products Inc.: Keep Baby Safe as Summer Temperatures Soar

New Baby Room Thermometer Helps Parents Rest Easy

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - With high summer time temperatures fast approaching Canadian homes, the grobag egg™ digital room thermometer is ideal for parents to keep the temperature in baby's rooms under control.

"It is extremely important to create safe sleeping environments for infants to toddlers, until they can express their temperature concerns to their parents," states Narda Simpson, mother of three. "The grobag egg™ digital thermometer is just one step in creating safe sleep for infants."

Maintaining the temperature in a baby's bedroom is an important factor in reducing the risk of SIDS.

A recent study released by the University of Calgary, Faculty of Medicine, published in the June issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, confirms that an increased room temperature is one factor in causing overheating of newborns, affecting a baby's breathing pattern.

Unlike other room thermometers, the grobag egg™ allows parents to easily see if the temperature is appropriate by its colour. The colour changes with the temperature in the room. A natural yellow glow suggests a comfortable temperature for children to sleep in, while a blue glow suggests it's too cold and a red glow suggests it's too hot. The colours act as a call to action for parents to cool or heat the room, or to modify the baby's clothing or grobag® sleeping bag.

Room temperature is vital in creating a safe sleep environment for a baby and should be maintained at 16-20(C to help reduce the risk of SIDS. To learn more about the grobag egg™ and creating safe sleeping environments for babies, visit www.oyaco.com.
