My son is 3.5 months and has learned to roll from his back to his front. He can't roll from his front to his back. When he tires of holding his head up on his tummy he just puts his face down covering his mouth and nose! He sleeps in a sleeping bag with arms out and is rolling over in his sleep! What can I do other than keep putting him back on his back? This is very exhausting as he can roll over 10+ times a night...
Last night I woke up to find my little man (11 days old) up against the side of the bassinet, his face against the side. He must have wriggled over and rolled onto his side. I always put him down on his back and he sleeps in a Love to Dream swaddle. I didn't know he could move around so much. Now I am absolutely petrified to use the bassinet again. I picked him straight up and held him all night because I was so scared to put him back. How can I make sure he is safe in his bassinet?
Hi, My five-month-old has started to roll around in his cot. There have been a number of times when he gets his arm or leg stuck between the bars and he can't work out how to get out of the position and becomes very distressed. I know bumpers and positions are not recommended; do you have a safe solution? Thanks
I work at a childcare centre and we have many parents asking us to not let their child sleep. With the children's best interest in mind we disagree with not letting a child sleep, however are willing to wake the child depending on how long they have slept for. I have looked online but am struggling to come across the right info - are there recommendations for how long children from 0-5yrs should nap for? I know there is research to say 30 minutes is ideal for an adult etc., but I can't find anything for children, particularly the 3-5yr range. Thanks!
I have a normal baby monitor with audio, not video nor breathing pads. Every mum I know has breathing pads. These are quite pricey. From what I've read online there is no evidence they help SIDS or anything to back up they are worth it. So my question is, what are your thoughts on them? Worth it? Waste of money?
Just wondering if there is any portacot mattress you recommend? They are this ridiculous, uncomfortable thin/wonky sponge. We bought a different mattress from baby bunting for our boori bassinet and it made all the difference. Hoping there is something similar for portacots? Clark Rubber have specifically mentioned that their mattress is not for a portacot.
My three-month-old is in a cot in his own room (due to space reasons). I put him on his back to sleep with feet near the end of the cot in a sleeping bag but he moves up the cot during the night to the other end of the cot and into the corner. He has also been going up on his side and putting his face into the mattress while sleeping (mattress firm, new and right size for the cot). Is there anything I can do to stop him from moving around and sleeping on his side?
Hi, I'm due with my second baby in a few months and I am planning to use the same cot as I did with my first. I've heard that it can be unsafe to use the same mattress with another baby as it could have mould from wee stains. Is this true? The mattress is otherwise in perfect condition and only used for nine months. Thanks for your help!
Our question is regarding families' requests for their young children and babies to sleep on their tummies whilst at the centre. Although we know the correct safe positions, provide this information to families etc.......some parents are still insisting our educators place their children on their tummies. How do we tackle this issue?
