So my 5 month old just learnt to roll from his back to his tummy but cannot roll from his tummy to his back. So when I put him to bed on his back he ends up rolling on his stomach and falls asleep face first into the mattress because he can’t turn back over again and I’m so worried he will suffocate being face down. What should I do if I fall asleep and he ends up face first while I’m sleeping and can’t turn him back over ?
My baby is two weeks old and we live in the Kimberley so it’s very humid. We keep the air con on in the lounge room all day but not in the babies room, although the door is open so does get partially cooled as not far from lounge room. I am unsure how best to dress him for sleep at night - have been trying to swaddle him as I heard it’s good to try replicate the womb plus he has a tendency to stick his hands in his mouth / scratch his face, but he writhes around in the swaddle and cries / is hard to settle. Should I give up the swaddling and just put mittens on his hands to stop the scratching? Is it ok to let his Moro reflex run rampant and have him go to sleep with no sheet or swaddle?
Hi, is it okay to use two safe sleeping bags? For example, my son’s room is quite warm in the early evening so he only needs to be in a 1 TOG but then it cools during the night and it would be much easier just to add a 2nd 1 TOG sleeping bag over the top rather than remove the 1st one to then put him in a 2.5 TOG. He is 10m old.
My 3.5 month old has started rolling onto her tummy at night. She can not yet roll from tummy to back. She has grown out of her bassinet so I have just moved her to her cot which is in her own room as it doesn’t fit in my room. Should I roll her onto her back if she flips or leave her? She doesn’t always cry if she flips so it’s hard to know at night if she has rolled onto her tummy or not unless I happen to wake and find her that way.
