My 2w-3d old baby wriggles to the edge of her bassinet every night. We've tried her in the arms up love to dream and arms down ergo pouches, as well as a light blanket tucked over her lower body. I have to move her back to the centre at every feed (4hourly). Is there a reason for this? She isn't rolling. Just wriggling her whole body diagonally so her face is almost smushed up against the wall.
Hi, I'm the Coordinator of a childcare centre. Our current cots have the standard AS/NZS 2130. Are these cots suitable for a childcare setting or do they need upgrading? On research I can see that they are suitable for Day nursery, hospital and institutional use. I'm just not sure if they meet the childcare requirements. Thanks.
I have a 16 week old baby who is obsessed with rolling onto her tummy during sleep. She rolls onto the tummy during settling time and also in her actual sleep. She is very strong and has good neck control. She began rolling tummy to back at roughly 2.5 months but since starting to roll back to tummy it's like she has forgotten how. I had read that she needs to consistently roll both ways to sleep oj her tummy. I'm so worried about her sleeping on her tummy but I am spending hours flipping her back over and having no success with her staying there. I'm just not sure what to do? I can't stay awake 24 hours per day flipping her onto her back constantly. Some naps, she will roll onto her tummy 6 or 7 times in 10 minutes.
My 4.5 month is able to roll from back to tummy but has not been able to learn to roll from tummy to back. She sleeps with her arms free and in a cot which is within our room. She has recently shown a liking to sleeping on her side and rolls over to her side despite being placed on her back. If she does go fully onto her tummy at night, she will cry and we will reset her. This is quite disruptive and impacts her and our sleep. Do we need to roll her on to her back or can we leave her on the side.
I work in a nursery. I have up to 4 babies by myself. I have a 7 month old at the moment who will only sleep either in my arms, or in a cot on their belly. I am well aware that they should not be on their belly. I have expressed this to the parent, the parent just indicates that they will sleep no other way. I'm the only educator in the room. I simply can't just sit with one child in my arms. I have tried settling them in the cot on their back. I've tried settling in my arms and putting them on their back in the cot once they are well asleep. As soon as they touch the mattress the child becomes very very upset. Neither can I sit with a child asleep in my arms when there are many other tasks to see to. What am I to do?
