We are currently updating our Sleep Policy in our Long Day Care setting. We currently do 10 minute room checks in our babies room with each room having a monitor also available at all times. I was just wondering if this is what is recommended or if it is a different time frame for regular checks? Thank you in advance.
my little man is 3.5 months and still has a strong startle reflex in his sleep and won’t stay asleep without being in his sleeping sack (only a head hole). However he is super restless in his sleep and can easily roll over onto his tummy. Twice in the last few days I have found him face down in his cot asleep with his face out to the side but i worry about his breathing being obstructed. Do you have any suggestions on keeping a safe sleeping environment with the startle reflex? Unfortunately even the armless sacks don’t keep him settled.
Hi, just wondering at what age it is safe for a baby/toddler to sleep with a blanket for warmth? My daughter is 15 months old and moves around a LOT in her sleep so she currently wears a sleeping suit (bag) to keep warm. But we are going camping in a few weeks and are worried about her being too cold at night in the tent and at the same time worried about using a blanket in case she wiggles around and becomes entangled/suffocated in her sleep. (She will be sleeping in a portacot in the tent). Thanks in advance!
We are aware that the safest place for a newborn to sleep is in their cot, however we do not have the space available to have the cot in our bedroom and the nursery is to far from the main rooms and master for them to be sleeping there from birth. Is a porta cot in our room the best option we have to ensure our baby is safe at night?
