Hi. My baby just turned 7 weeks and I've just put him in love to dream swaddles. I place him on his back and then he rolls to the side (during light sleep I think). He was doing it when we tried the Love to Dream swaddles at 1.5 weeks old too. I am petrified to fall asleep incase he rolls into his stomach. I thought babies don't roll until they are at least 4 months old?
The recommended age range of having your baby sleep in the same room for 6-12 months is a large range. How is this range justified ? I like to follow the evidence based recommendations but would like some more information in regards to the risk of moving my ten month old to a separate room (as she has outgrown her bassinet) and how this 6-12month recommended range is backed up? e.g why can't they be moved to a separate room at 6 months? We follow all other recommendations for a safe sleeping environment. Thankyou!
Hi, I am family day care educator. I would like to have advice on safe floor mattress using for toddlers. I prefer all my children ( over 12 month old) sleep on the floor mattress. Do you have any safe guides for floor mattress which I can refer to? I could not find specific requirements for floor mattress such as: what is the required thickness? Is waterproof mattresses required in childcare setting? Thank you
My 5 month/ nearly 6 month old confidently rolls from her back to her tummy, but not from her tummy to her back. She is getting to big for her bassinet so looking to move her into her own room and cot, but worried that she can’t roll back. She sleeps in her cot during the day and rolls to her side and tummy, and will cry or wake up when she can’t get back onto her back. I am also worried she’ll get stuck face down during the night as I won’t be able to watch like I do during the day. She can lift her head up if needed, but have seen her during the day sleep with her face turned into the mattress?
I've been given a cocoonababy nest as a gift. I've gone onto their website and they do say it's not SIDS approved, but I wanted to see what your thoughts were about sleeping a baby in it during the day under supervision. The instructions say to only use the cacoonababy nest in the first few weeks, before baby shows any signs of rolling or attempting to roll. Can you help me with any advice as to whether this product is safe? Thank you so much
Hi! In preparation for our new baby we purchased a Breathe Eze Cosy Crib with Sleep positioner. On the packaging it says "reduce the risk of SIDS" which was a big plus for us. If I was able to upload a photo I would so you could verify the product. My questions are : a. Is this safe for baby to sleep in? We have been using it but now are wondering whether we are doing the right thing. b. Is laying baby flat on their back after feeding increasing the risk of vomiting or other digestive issues after feeding ? I really appreciate your help. Kind regards Larissa
Hello, I am a director of a Family Day Care Service. We are currently implementing the updated standard for porta cots (of how they are only to be used short term) and replacing them all with permanent cots in all of our Educator homes. My question is, when is a baby considered to be old enough to move out of the cot and sleep on a mattress on the floor with other children in care?
