My son is almost 2 and has been an extremely unsettled & restless sleeper since birth. He’s still in a cot but wakes frequently often from rolling around and hitting the sides of the cot. It’s almost as if the cot isn’t big enough and sometimes we transfer him to a mattress on the floor. He sleeps in a sleep suit with legs. Is it safe to use a cot bumper now to soften the sides to see if that will help? Is a weighted blanket a possibility at this age?
My baby is 5.5 months old and has been able to roll for the last 2 or so weeks. She can go from back to front really well and is still mastering front to back. We have moved her into her cot from her bassinet. I always put her to sleep on her back and then usually half an hour later she will try to roll on to her tummy. I think because she is asleep at times she can’t quite make it all the way over she, will wake herself up and cry out for me (other times she manages it fine). Now that she can roll can I place her on her tummy to go to sleep or can I help her roll on to her stomach when I notice that she might be trying to roll over but having trouble? Our cot is also quite narrow so often once she has rolled I have to move her away from the sides of the cot anyway.
Hi there, my son is 13 weeks and we are using Love to Dream ‘transition’ bags with the wings attached as he is not rolling yet. However in reviewing safe sleeping resources, it seems that the preference is for babies arms to be out, regardless of whether baby can or can’t roll - could you advise please? Also, with regard to the advice to cease wrapping once a baby can roll, does this also mean to cease using sleeping bags? Even with arms out, babies legs are still inside the bag; does this hinder their ability to roll back onto their back? Thank you!
I have two questions: 1. Are beds such as 'First years cozy baby sleeper' safe for newborns in their cot and for also for travel? 2. Our baby will be 5 months old when we plan on taking our caravan on a 6 month trip. We have a bottom bunk bed. Is it safe to use the bed with a safety rail ok at this age? Or are there recommendations for travelling in a caravan with babies?
Hi there, My 10 week old son has been wriggling to the side of his bassinet and squashes his face against it. I wake up and have to move him from that position to the middle of the bassinet multiple times a night. He is quite a big boy.. he weighs in at 6.6kgs & is quite long. I have also noticed he can now successfully roll to his side when he wants to. Please let me know if it’s time to transfer him to the cot as I’m finding he continuously wriggles and covers his face with the side wall off the bassinet. I worry he might obstruct himself from breathing properly!
I've just started some sleep training with my 6 month old to get him to fall asleep in the cot and not my arms. After placing him on his back "drowsy but awake", he immediately rolls onto his front before going to sleep on his tummy. If I turn him back he cries. I feel really frightened about not being able to get him to fall asleep on his back, even though this is how I place him.
Our baby is just over 7 months. She can only roll back to front to back to her left and not yet to her right but she has just started crawling. After being placed on her back to sleep she is rolling onto her tummy multiple times overnight, sometimes turning her head to the side and sometimes not (which is scary). We are rolling her back onto her back but sometimes this can be a dozen times overnight and often wakes her. Now that she is crawling and has the strength to lift her head (even though not rolling both ways) are we able to let her sleep on her tummy or do we continue to roll her onto her back until she can consistently roll both ways? Thank you
