Hi, I have a 5 month old who has become quite good at rolling from his back onto his stomach. I sleep him in Love to Dream sleep bags, however I still find him trapped between the slats of the cot. I watch the video monitor constantly throughout the day but don’t know what to do when we move him to the cot for night sleeping. I know I’m not meant to use bumpers, but is there some sort of alternate for this situation? Short of putting him in the portacot to sleep, I’m not sure what to do.
Hello my 9 week old daughter has been wiggling over to the edge of the bassinet and putting her face up against it which has me worried for suffocation, my friend said to put something under it so I put a folded wrap under both sides that may lift it to 1cm and she now stays in the middle of the bassinet, is that safe? I’m worried about sids it has me scared every time I wake up
My baby is now 8 weeks old and has been sleeping in a DockAtot inside his bassinet since birth. Please can you tell me if it is safe for him to continue? I have had 3 midwives day it is fine and 1 child health nurse but 1 child health nurse has said that no it is not safe. Thank you for your time Natalia Rafferty
We have a child who has just enroled with us who currently falls asleep on her bottle in her cot. Her parent would like us to continue this here at our centre, however we don't usually put children in their cots with milk bottles. If she was observed during the drinking of the bottle, and the bottle was removed once she was asleep, would this be acceptable practice? We also had a question about comforters? All of our children (0-2 years) bring either a soft teddy or 'riffraff' to take to bed with them. If they fall asleep with these, but they are removed once they are asleep, is this okay? Can we have a parent write permission to void the centre policy for the two questions above? Stating that they understand and have read the centre policy on safe sleeping and choose to continue with their home practice.
