Hello! My partner and I are considering moving our 2 1/2 y.o. daughter into a toddler bed soon. She has always used sleep suits in the cot but I have read on the Red Nose website that these are not recommended once a child moves out of their cot to a toddler/single bed. My question, therefore, relates to the use of bedding in the 'big kid' bed. Does the blanket/sheet being used on a toddler/single bed still need to be tucked in securely and the child placed at the bottom of the bed so as not to wriggle underneath the covers, as per in a cot? If so, what is the recommendation for when a using a doona/duvet in a toddler/single bed (i.e. is it necessary to secure the doona? Is it ok the place the child at the top of the bed like an adult or should they still be tucked in at the bottom of the bed?)?
My 4 month old has started rolling back to tummy she was already rolling tummy to back from about 10 weeks . But now that she can go back to tummy she rolls over every time you lay her in the cot to bed . I read of your website that as long as they roll both ways that if they roll in there sleep that is okay to leave them and as long as you put them to sleep on there back my question thought is what the definition of putting to sleep on back cause I’ll lay her on her back to sleep and I’ll start patting her to sleep but she immediately roll over and go to decide to go to sleep on her tummy I’m just not sure if that okay or do I have to keep rolling her over and patting her until she fully asleep then if she rolls over then it okay to leave her like that . Hope my question make sense thanks
Hi, We are looking at pram options for newborns and the Uppababy range has their bassinets listed as approved for overnight sleeping. We can't locate any Australian information to support this though or what standard it was tested to. We are considering the use of the pram bassinet when travelling home after giving birth over ~ 4 weeks (bubs will have solid furniture in the home once we arrive). We know the Uppababy is an American brand and are wondering if they have undergone any testing within Australia to support their claims (in light of the risks of SIUD)? Thanks.
