My son's cot has a 2cm gap each side of the mattress (between the mattress and frame). I undersand this meets the minimum safety requirements but it seems quite large to me and I am nervous that as he is an active sleeper his hand could become trapped. I also have to make sure each sleep that it is exactly centred or the gap will be larger. Someone has told me to place a rolled up towel in the gap but I don't think that would be recommended as a safe option. What is recommended in this situation?
My 8-week-old baby sleeps in a winter sleeping bag (love to dream swaddle) with recommended layers underneath (bodysuit or singlet underneath a onesie). However, we have found that he seems to get cold at night even following these recommendations and wakes often (every 2 to 3 hours) and is very restless. When feeling his chest he appears cold. We have placed lighter blankets on top of him which seems to keep him warmer and less restless but this seems to be contradictory of Red Nose's recommendations. Could you please advise if we are layering him too much? Thank you
What are the recommendations for safe sleeping a severe silent reflux infant? Little one is almost 5 months and currently still in bassinet next to our bed. He gulps and gags a lot during the night and needs to be picked up often. Can we use the wedge pillow when he is in his cot? Day sleeps are in his cot flat on his back but at night is when his reflux is the worst.
