My 4.5 month has started rolling from his back to front in his sleep. At this stage he wakes him self up each time. I’m worried about when he starts to do this and not wake him self OR do they generally gain the strength to roll front to back around this time? If I find he has rolled to his tummy and not woken, do I roll him to his back and if so till what age
I used my cousin’s bassinet for my first child but now wondered where I can go to have the bassinet checked to provide approval it is safe for my second child. It is a Love n Care bassinet, with 4 mesh windows (each side, top& bottom) but I wonder if the entire side needs to be mesh rather than ‘windows’. I have a link to the product on Baby Kingdom website as well as a picture clearly showing the windows in question. Can you tell me who may be able to give me the all clear for my bassinet?Thanks!
Hi just wanted to seek some advice on how safe the ‘Love n Care Moonlight’ bassinet is for my 7 week old. (https://www.babykingdom.com.au/love-n-care-moonlight-sleeper-ash.html) I’m just a bit concerned about the lack of mesh at the same level where baby’s face is and whether she could breathe safely if she were to sleep next to the sides. She wriggles a fair bit in her sleep despite being placed at the bottom of the bassinet on her back. Many thanks
I’m due in August with my first and have been given a lovely 2nd hand pram from my friend. It’s a very nice , expensive , well looked after pram which we are very happy with. However , we were told today that it’s not recommend to use any 2nd hand sleeping things for the baby. Including a pram. ( due to SIDS ) That it’s better to only use new. This was from a baby antenatal course. Does this sound right?
Hi. We will be driving from Canberra to Sydney ( around a 3 hour trip) with our baby when she is 9 to 10 weeks old. She uses a rear facing baby capsule and we are planning to break up the trip but my questions are - How long would be the maximum amount of time should she be in the capsule for? ( I had read that 1 hour was the longest recommended - but other sources suggest a two hour maximum?) How long should breaks out of the seat during the trip be? and Is there a maximum amount of time she should be spending in the carseat in one day? We want to modify the trip to make it as safe as possible for her. Thank you
We bought a pure latex mattress for our first child's cot. The mattress two years later is still in very good condition so we want to use the same mattress for our next child due shortly. I understand that latex prohibits the growth of harmful moulds, dust mites etc. and is allergen free. Will the mattress be OK for the next child?
Hi, Are Tetra Tea Tree Bassinet Mattresses safe to use? I have been given mixed advice, some from parents who faithfully use and LOVE them, and others who say they are not safe due to being soft instead of firm. I suspect they are safe otherwise I would question why they are allowed to be sold in Australia. We have a vintage rattan bassinet. Thanks,Jennifer
We have the Uppababy Vista pram which says the bassinet is “approved for overnight sleeping”. I cannot find any information about what organisation has issued this approval and whether it conforms to Australian guidelines. Do you have any advice? We have a regular bassinet as well, but all daytime naps are in the pram bassinet and often the first sleep of the night (which can be anywhere from 3-6 hours long) ends up in the pram bassinet too as baby is easier to settle
