My 3.5 month old has began to roll from back to belly.. mainly in her sleep at night, rarely during the day. Firstly... At such a young age should I be rolling her back onto her back (when I do this she usually is back on her belly or side working 10 min) secondly…Our issue is that her cot doesn’t fit in in our room which means she would have to sleep in her own room but she hasn’t reached the recommended 6 month room sharing milestone yet. Do we move her to her room in the cot with the baby monitor on high alert or keep her in the co sleeper / bassinet with us until 6 months. She is in a large bassinet that has a firm mattress, it’s large enough that when she rolls over she has lots of room around her. We do lots of tummy time during the day which she loves and has developed a very strong neck.
Hi there, My 9 week old who is currently in a sleep swaddle has been moving so much in his sleep. He will move to the edge of the bassinet during the night with his face pushed up on the mesh or I have woken up to him laying parallel on the bottom of the bassinet! We have removed all blankets for safety but we’re really concerned about his breathing & general sleep safety so unsure how to manage this.. Does this mean he is really for arms out of the swaddle? Thank you so much
We are not able to settle our 7 week old to nap during the day. His best day he slept 4 hours in the day, his worse none at all, not even 5 minutes. As a result he is constantly overtired & only stops crying to feed. This has been going on for 3 weeks. He does sleep well at night but not in the bassinet and not on his back. The only time he will sleep is on his side in our bed. My question is what is worse for his health; zero to fours hours of sleep every 24 hours or sleeping on his side in our bed?
Hi there. My 6 month old has recently started to roll from back to tummy in his cot. Unfortunately he has not yet mastered tummy to back rolling. We have already transitioned to sleep suits with no arms so he is able to move his head around at night/while asleep. Everyone we put him down to sleep recently even before he is fully asleep he will roll over onto his tummy to sleep. Is this an issue? Everywhere I read, it says to put your child on their back for sleep but he does not settle and fall asleep on his back anymore, immediately rolling over. First time parents so naturally quite anxious with this new stage in sleeping.
Hi There, My daughter is 4 months old and is able to roll from her back to her tummy. She is only able to do this in one direction and cannot roll from her tummy to back. We place her into her cot on her back but she will now usually roll onto her tummy with her arms sometimes under her and usually with her face down (nose and mouth pressed into the mattress). When we roll her onto her back she usually cries and ends up back on her face.. I'm concerned she won't be able to breathe and not sure what to do or how to keep her on her back during the night.
Hello, I've read your cot to bed information brochure but wanted to get some more advice around bedding in a toddler bed. Our son has just turned two and beginning to show interest in climbing up on the side of his cot but because he sleeps in a sleep sack I'm not sure what bedding to use once we take the side of the cot off to convert to toddler bed. The cot/bed will still have three sides so I would assume it's not safe for him to use a pillow, but also wondering what size bedding to buy - is a single doona and doona cover going to be too bulky to be safe? He moves around a fair bit while he's sleeping so I worry about him getting stuck under bedding/falling from a bigger bed. Thank you!
My 6 month old is constantly rolling and moving in her cot. She loves to sleep on her tummy too and is super comfy. But when she stretches up or rolls she hits her head on the side of the cot. This happens at least 7 times a night. What can we do to help prevent head injury? Should we transition her to a floor toddler bed for more room?
