Hi, I have a 19-week-old baby who learned how to roll from back to tummy about a month ago. Every night we put him to bed in a swaddle with arms out and on his back, for the past week he has slept really badly as he has been trying to roll all night but had not managed to learn how to roll in the swaddle. We tried using rolled up towels under the sheet to make bumpers to stop him but he wriggles his entire body up to the end of the cot until he can find a way to roll. Tonight we woke to find we have been asleep for 8 hours (the longest he has ever slept), when I looked at the monitor he is asleep on his tummy. Panicked we went in and turned him over and watching the monitor but he just rolled over again and went back to sleep on his tummy. We have a video/sound and movement monitor with alarm for any lack of movement. Should we keep going in and rolling him back over? His head is turned to one side and he has his arms out which is good but I know that back is best so don’t know what to do.
Keeping baby warm at winter? Currently I use a gro egg to check the tenparture of our babies room and dress according to this using a tog guide in a sleeping bag. When it’s cold I put the air con on to take the chill out of the room (the temperature is still below 20). I wanted to see if I can place a heat bag in his bed to warm it up prior to placing him in there (removing before he is put in) as I wanted to take the chill out of the bed.
I wanted to get some advice on the use of a comforter for my nearly one year old. I understand it is recommended to not have anything in the cot for babies under 7 months. My son will be one in 2 weeks. Would it now be safe for him to have an age appropriate soft toy in his cot for comfort at night? Thanks
Hello! We are about to have our first baby. We have a second-hand bassinet that we needed a new mattress for (existing mattress was a bit worse for wear). We couldn't find one that matched the size of the bassinet so my husband went to Clark Rubber and had a piece of firm foam the same thickness/width/length as the previous mattress cut. Will this be safe for our baby to sleep on?
I have two curious cats and I am concerned they will jump into the bassinet/cot and sleep near or on the baby as they do with us. Locking the cat out of our room is not something that can be done as the cats will scratch and meow all night to get in. Any recommendations for a cot or bassinet that prevents cats from jumping in? Thanks
My twins are now in toddler beds. I've looked but can't see if there's recommendations on blankets that could be used? For example, I've a loosely hand knitted blanket I'd like to give them on cooler nights. It's quite airy and has gaps obviously from being knitted. Suppose my question is would something lite pose a danger?
