My baby is now 8 weeks old and has been sleeping in a DockAtot inside his bassinet since birth. Please can you tell me if it is safe for him to continue? I have had 3 midwives day it is fine and 1 child health nurse but 1 child health nurse has said that no it is not safe. Thank you for your time Natalia Rafferty
We have a child who has just enroled with us who currently falls asleep on her bottle in her cot. Her parent would like us to continue this here at our centre, however we don't usually put children in their cots with milk bottles. If she was observed during the drinking of the bottle, and the bottle was removed once she was asleep, would this be acceptable practice? We also had a question about comforters? All of our children (0-2 years) bring either a soft teddy or 'riffraff' to take to bed with them. If they fall asleep with these, but they are removed once they are asleep, is this okay? Can we have a parent write permission to void the centre policy for the two questions above? Stating that they understand and have read the centre policy on safe sleeping and choose to continue with their home practice.
I purchased a ‘full lie flat for naps’ travel pram for my 4 month old to fly interstate with me for a funeral. It is a reputable brand. Whilst not ideal to nap in a pram, I thought it would be helpful for the baby to take naps in at the airport and whilst I’m at the funeral. However upon delivery and set up, the lie flat is still at a 30 degree angle. Is this considered unsafe for babies?
Hi. My son is 15.5 months old (14 months old corrected age). He’s never slept with anything in his cot and has always been in a sleeping bag. I feel as though introducing something for him to cuddle will help his sleep, eg a comforter. Is this safe for his age? I have a teddy bear lovey blanket that he’s been given that I’m thinning of using, but only if it’s safe! Thank you.
Hi, Im wondering what is the safest way to transition my toddler (2yo) from a sleeping bag to a pillow and sheets/blankets? He has always slept in a sleeping bag without a pillow or blankets but I think its time to move out of the sleeping bag. Our toddler moves quiet a bit in his sleep sometimes even from one end of the cot to the other. Thanks Caron
