I have a 5 day old newborn. As soon as you put him down for nappies, in the bassinet, in the cot, wherever, he immediately rolls onto his side and it's not the same direction each time. This is my second baby so I know about safe sleep, we are using the same bassinet and cot mattress as we did for my first so I know it's not those and just something he does. We are using the love to dream swaddle bags and I've tried tucking him in as tightly as possible but still does it and no amount of readjusting stops. What do I do?
Hello, my 5 month old has recently started rolling from back to tummy, but hasn’t yet rolled tummy to back. I place him on his back to sleep but he will roll over in the night. He often will lie face down sucking on the mattress and I’m worried he’ll fall asleep like this. Is there anything I can do?
We just returned home from the hospital after the birth of our first child. Last night he was unable to be settled the entire night. We are wondering if the room is too cold. We are unsure if we can use the heater on a low setting to help control the room temperature. It got down to 9 degrees last night and although he had many light layers on and a tightly tucked in blanket he was still unsettled and cold. We don’t want to do the wrong thing and cause any issues for our little one.
I believe toxigenic bacteria in mattresses can be related to SIDS, and this can be a risk with a second hand cot mattress. Can the same be said for a standard second hand mattress protector or can a machine wash be enough to remove the bacteria? I have been given one that looks to be in perfect condition and only 5 years old (held in storage). However I am wondering if it is safest to just purchase new. Thanks in advance.
My 5.5 month old had recently started turning from tummy to back and back to tummy. At night she is trying to sleep on her side. She sleeps in a sleeping bag with arms out however I’ve still been putting the inbuilt mittens on her onesie over her hands for extra warmth. Is this a safe sleeping practice ? With her hands covered could this be a danger if she did land on her tummy ?
