We have a co-sleeper bassinet with mesh sides, one of which zips down so she can be next to our bed ( babyhood co-sleep cradle). After I put her down in the centre of the bassinet our newborn wriggles herself right across the bassinet towards our mattress and though there is no danger of her falling into our bed I worry she’ll get into a position against the side of the bassinet so she can’t breathe. The side is ~5-10cm high when zipped down and is primarily mesh. Should I be using wedges to keep her in the centre of the bassinet?
We have recently put our baby in her cot in her room as she’s now too big for her bassinet. She is sleeping in a sleeping bag but she has now started to roll and sleep on her tummy. If I move her back to her back she instantly wakes up screaming and it’s a fight to get her back to sleep for hours has good neck control, she can roll back but doesn’t always do this or with ease. Is it ok to leave her on her tummy if she’s rolled?
My 5.5 month old baby slept in her cot for the first time. I happened to be watching the baby monitor and saw her roll over from her back, onto her face, flat on her face! I ran in and turned her head to the side. I fear the worst and not sure if I’ll ever sleep again! Should I be concerned? Is there anything I can do?
Hi I try to avoid synthetics and man made materials . Please tell me what material is best for a baby's mattress in both basinette and cot. And does it have a rubber/ plastic cover. And do these products have set life span.? Does the material start to break down after a set time or after a certain amount of use.? Thank You
Hi, My 10.5 mth old finds it hard to settle to sleep in his cot and usually wants to be rocked/cuddled to sleep. We don’t usually co-sleep with him in our bed (he sleeps in a cot in our room), but when we have co-slept he wants to move straight up onto our pillows and falls to sleep immediately. We have been gifted a lambswool, cot quilt and flat cot pillow but had not used them (only lambswool for floor time while under supervision). But I tried them, and he slept fantastically. He is a snuggler who hated being swaddled as a new baby, and used to want to sleep on his side, and tummy as soon as he could roll. I know the advice is not to use soft bedding, but is there a safe compromise? Or at what age is a lambswool, quilt & pillow OK to use? Thank you!
I was recently given a very popular product from South Africa for my 6 week old baby that apparently helps with sleep and settling. Wanted to get some advice on safety. Have checked with manufacturer and they claim it’s safe it want to confirm before using with my baby. The product is called nurture one - https://www.nurtureoneusa.com/
My 6mth old has started rolling from back to front and seems to prefer tummy/side sleeping. We have been waking to check on him and have been rolling him back over as his head is often face down into the mattress. He is not yet able to roll the other way, from front to back. Are we doing the right thing by rolling him ourselves or can we just leave him? It is causing disrupted sleep for him and us as he sometimes wakes when we move him. Thanks
