I had bought a Mosman Expandable cot which stated that the mattress should not be more than 120mm thick. I had bought a mattress that is 125mm thick. Will that be a problem? I know it is really just 0.5cm difference and should not be a problem but just want to make sure there is nothing I am missing here. Thank you
Are co-sleeping bassinets safe? Where the bassinet attaches appropriately to our own mattress allowing me to reach in and sooth the baby or easily access for a feed throughout the night. Without the baby sleeping on our actual mattress? I'm reading mixed things and I just want to be safe. Would it be better to have a crib next to the bed that would require me to reach in to get the baby out?
I have a 6-week-old son who has been diagnosed with reflux. He's worse at night time with vomiting and spitting up, during the day he doesn't sleep much because he wakes from being in pain. My doctor suggested to put him on an elevated position in his bassinet. I follow all Red Nose's recommendations and he sleeps on his back in a zipped up grow suit. I'm hesitant to elevate his mattress without knowing what Red Nose suggests. All information I've read elsewhere is conflicting. I'm worried he will choke on his spit up laying flat but I'm also worried he'll slip down into an unsafe position elevated. What do you recommend for babies with reflux and sleep positions? Thank you
