SIDS and Woodsmoke I live in suburban Sydney, in an area with a lot of chimney smoke. The smoke from neighbouring properties can be smelt in my house. Does the wood smoke increase the risk of SIDS (like cigarette smoke?) . We have invested in an air purifier - which is not the perfect solution and i do not believe will remove all the particulates from the air. Are there any other preventative measures we can take. We have a newborn baby - less than 1 month old. Thanks.
I purchased a ‘full lie flat for naps’ travel pram for my 4 month old to fly interstate with me for a funeral. It is a reputable brand. Whilst not ideal to nap in a pram, I thought it would be helpful for the baby to take naps in at the airport and whilst I’m at the funeral. However upon delivery and set up, the lie flat is still at a 30 degree angle. Is this considered unsafe for babies?
Hi. My son is 15.5 months old (14 months old corrected age). He’s never slept with anything in his cot and has always been in a sleeping bag. I feel as though introducing something for him to cuddle will help his sleep, eg a comforter. Is this safe for his age? I have a teddy bear lovey blanket that he’s been given that I’m thinning of using, but only if it’s safe! Thank you.
Hi, Im wondering what is the safest way to transition my toddler (2yo) from a sleeping bag to a pillow and sheets/blankets? He has always slept in a sleeping bag without a pillow or blankets but I think its time to move out of the sleeping bag. Our toddler moves quiet a bit in his sleep sometimes even from one end of the cot to the other. Thanks Caron
I understand that hats should not be kept on babies while they are indoors or in a car. I have also read that hats should not be kept on babies while they are sleeping. Is this the case if they are in the pram on a cold day? Also, what about if the car is really cold as the heating is not warm yet, should hats be kept off in this case?
