My baby is 2mths old and my mother in law suggests I should give him a dummy to reduce the risk of SIDS. Is this proven to be preventive? We don’t smoke, he’s breastfed and sleeps in a safe and temperature controlled environment. But I can’t find evidence to support the claim that dummies help reduce the risk? Cheers
My 4 month old is rolling from back to tummy, he wears a well fitted sleeping bag (arms out) in his cot. He’s not yet able to roll from tummy to back. I have read all information about rolling from your website, but does this only apply if they can roll both ways? Do I need to monitor his sleep and put him back into his back until he has learnt to roll that way himself? He gets lots of tummy time and is quite strong, but does start to tire out on his tummy after a while
Hi, Tonight, the 28th March, when checking my letterbox, I got a red nose red connection donation bag. It says to leave at my letter box this coming Tuesday 7am and red nose will collect it with any donations of clothing items etc., I put in the red bag. I live in Walkerville, South Australia. Can you confirm for me will this be this Tuesday the 2nd April? If so i'm in the process of going through things in my spare room and I'm sure there'd be items in there for donations. Sincerely, Andy.
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?
