Are “Moses baskets” safe as a bedside sleeping option for newborns? We have been given one with a 3cm mattress and our concern is that the mattress is too thin to easily tuck the blanket edges around the bottom (so we worry the blanket could come loose.) The Moses basket also does not have fully breathable sides as it has a button-on fitted cotton liner.
Hi, I have a 3 week old baby boy who already has very strong reflexes and already can lift his head really well and rolls full body around side to side. We have him sleeping in his own bassinet next to our bed in a onesie and a love to dream swaddle for his size. My question is - he wears the ‘warm’ love to dream swaddle as that’s the correct one for our current weather and he therefore does not need any blankets over him or he will overheat. However because he is just in the swaddle, the second we lay him on his back he rolls to his side to fall asleep and when I position him on his back again he just rolls to his side again. Is it safe for him to sleep on his side if he is getting there by himself? If not, how do we keep him on his back?
Hi, My 15 week old baby started rolling from his back to front a couple of weeks ago. He cannot yet roll from his front to his back, but can hold his neck up. I always put him to sleep on his back, but he is constantly rolling onto his tummy. Im up all night rolling him back over, especially after midnight it seems to be hourly. Its even to the point where I'm essentially holding him down while he is kicking his legs trying to roll onto his front. He sleeps in a cot in my room, in a sleeping bag with his arms out, and spends hours rolling on the floor having tummy time during the day. I've read on here that babies can find their own sleep position after being put on their bacm, but given his early age (not even 4 months yet) can I leave him on his front? This is the peak time for SIDS. Thank you.
My baby is 4 months old as is proficient at rolling from back to stomach, however any rolling of stomach to back has been accidental from losing her balance etc. My baby is sleeping arms out in a safe sleeping bag and I am continuing to place her back to sleep in her cot as I have from birth. During the night she is rolling to sleep either on her side or on her stomach - being she isn’t able to roll herself back yet should I be rolling her to be back to sleep again during the night? Even if this is waking her?
