Hi, I was reading this study "Mother-Infant Room-Sharing and Sleep Outcomes in the INSIGHT Study" which concludes that room-sharing at ages 4 and 9 months is associated with less nighttime sleep in both the short and long-term, reduced sleep consolidation, and unsafe sleep practices previously associated with sleep-related death. I was wondering what red nose thinks about babies sleeping in their own room from 4 months old?
Hi there, I have a 3 month old baby who we’ve just transitioned out of a mini crib and into his cot as he was hitting his head in the top of the mini crib. However he now wriggles so much he ends up hitting his head against the side bars of the cot ( so much so he has bruises on his head). We have a bumper to go around the inside of the cot, but have not used it as we were told that it is unsafe. Is this true? It is Cotten and light. And if so, is there something else we can use instead such as an insert etc to prevent him hitting his little head? He is still being swaddled - is just a very active sleeper! Thanks! Jean
My baby is 7 1/2 months old and keeps rolling onto his stomach to sleep, although we put him on his back. He can roll easily back to front, but cannot yet roll front to back. He has very good neck strength and pushes his entire chest off the ground in tummy time. My question is whether we should keep trying to turn him back onto his back. We are waking him up every time we do so. Thanks!
