I have purchased an Oricom baby sense2 monitor as my baby has a tendency to sleep face down. The monitor keeps false alarming. Oricom want me to completely cover the slatted base with a solid piece of plywood, then put the mattress on top. Is this safe? I’m reluctant as won’t this compromise the Australian standards on the cot along with not allowing the mattress to breath through the base slats this causing moisture build up - mould? Thank you.
Is it ok to use a woolen blanket in the cot (tucked in under mattress, face uncovered, etc) on particularly cold nights (rather than cotton cellular blankets that we usually use)? Bub is 2 months old and swaddled in a cotton wrap with cotton singlet and onesie beneath. Room temp is usually around 20 degrees. We have found bub is waking around 4-5am and feels quite cool to touch on back of neck and ears. Chest is semi-warm. Cotton blankets (even layering a few), don’t seem to be enough but was unsure if wool would cause over heating?
My 3 and a half month old daughter started rolling onto her stomach while sleeping about 2 weeks ago. She can’t consistently roll back onto her back. She often gets a bit stuck during the night and will cry out if she gets an arm stuck under her body. I move her onto her back but she goes straight onto her stomach again. I could roll her back 10 times a night. Many times I don’t catch it because she rolls over successfully and sleep there. She has good neck strength and sleeps with her head to the side. All of your literature says it’s fine for babies 5mth plus but doesn’t mention younger babies. Is this a concern and should I be rolling her back all night?
Hi, we plan to take a trip when baby is approx 3-4 months old. It will be a camping road trip and we will be away around 3 weeks in total. Is it ok for baby to sleep in a portacot (that meets Aus standards) for this period of time? Also, as we are camping and it may get hot overnight - is it ok to use a portable fan for baby?
My DS is 7 months today but is on the bigger size (wearing size 1 clothes and about 11.5kgs). I have put him to bed in his cot with a light cot doona for the first time. He’s not a real wriggler during the night and I have short sheeted the doona so it can’t be pulled up and tucked the sides in nice and tight. Just wondering if this is ok? When is the normal time to give Bub a doona at night? first time Mum, still learning....
My four-month-old has taken to sleeping on a bed surrounded by 4 pillows, like a little pillow fort! I am concerned that this is unsafe given he could move around and the pillows are all freely moving. Is this safe? And what risks should i look out for when he is sleeping (i.e. loose items, choking hazards etc.)?
