How can I support room sharing for daytime sleeps, my child has almost outgrown his bassinet which we’ve been able to move into the living room during the day, but also he is often woken up when in the living room as our dog barks often! Is it safe to put my baby in the cot in his room for daytime sleeps only, providing I check on him regularly?
Recently I have noted a lot of parents and online discussion forums advocating for use of a specific pillow designed to help with plagiocephaly/'flat head syndrome'. Although the research talks about risk to overheating and risk of suffocation, this pillow (the Mimos pillow) claims that it does not restrict movement and is a breathable pillow therefore mitigating the risk of suffocation. I would be interested in whether Red Nose has specifically looked at this pillow given the rise in popularity and its claims that it does not pose the same risk to baby safety (SIDS in particular)
Hi, I am confused about the AS/NZS 2172 mattress to cot height. I have an ajustable base with two heights. When base is at the lowest, Is the standard 600mm from bottom of base as in with no mattress to top of cot or 600mm from the top of the actual mattress to top of cot. And at the highest level 300mm or 400mm from base or from top of mattress? I hope this makes sense but different websites say different things or word this poorly. Thanks so much!!
Hi, My daughter is 5 weeks old and we are looking at going away for one night. We have an uppababy vista pram, and the manufacturer claims that the bassinet has been approved for overnight sleep; even going so far as to sell a stand specifically to position the bassinet on in the home. I understand the bottom is breathable, however my concern is that the sides of the bassinett could potentially be a suffocating hazard. Can you please offer any advice as to whether this is suitable. Thank you.
Hi there, Sorry for the repetitive question, but I don't quite understand when I should stop wrapping my baby. He's 4 months old, and showing signs of starting to roll (rolls to side and back from both tummy and back positions). He currently is swaddled, keeping his arms down by his sides, and his hips/legs loose enough to bend freely, for all sleeps. I've seen people are moving to a sleeping bag at this stage, with arms free. Is there a difference between wrapping with one or both arms free, and the sleeping bags with free arms? At what age/developmental milestone do they need to be removed from sleeping bags altogether? Is it the freedom of his arms that is most important, or arms and legs? Thank you
