We have a 14 month old boy, and we are looking to take him out for some trips in our caravan. Our van is fitted with bunk beds, and I am looking at building a gate for the opening (using an old cot side panel) and also blocking off some of the length of the bed using another panel. I plan for this to be solid, well secured, and to ensure there is no gaps between the mattress, etc. As I cant get access to the Australian Standards that govern Cot standards, I was wondering if there is any issues. Mainly regarding the mattress, etc. The existing mattress appears to be a relatively firm foam mattress.
Can you advise if using a mattress protector on safe cot mattress is okay? I couldn’t find any articles related to cot mattress protectors on the website, and I am not sure if I should put one on the cot mattress or not. How can I prevent soiled mattress if a mattress protector can’t/shouldn’t be used?
My 10 week old is currently sleeping in a bassinet in a sleeping bag with his arms in. He is starting to move around a lot during his nighttime sleeps, we wake up and he has moved himself to being completely horizontal at the bottom of the bassinet or diagonal with his face against the edge. He twists and turns a lot too. Is this safe? Im worried he is going to roll over. He is rolling from tummy to back consistently during tummy time.
Hi there! I just bought a cot but only realised after that the matching mattress option isn't very comfortable. I'm looking at different options but due to the odd dimensions, am having a hard time finding something. I was wondering if it is safe to stray from the recommended cot mattress measurements and if so, how much can I stray by? Thank you so much!
Hi, my 2.5 month old baby has just rolled for the first time tummy to back. She can’t roll back to tummy and has shown no signs of trying to. Can I continue to put her to sleep in an arms in sleep sack (love to dream or ergo pouch)? Or does she need to be arms out now? It seems logical that she would only be at risk if she could roll from her back to her tummy, but she can’t. So can I leave her as is with arms in until she rolls back to tummy? Her sleep sacks are not tight ie her arms aren’t pinned down beside her she moves them around within the sleep sack.
