Hi, I have 5 month old twins and my daughter has started rolling over (but hasn’t mastered rolling back yet). She also wriggles a lot and is in a sleeping bag with one arm out ( soon to be both arms) but will not stay on her back when she falls asleep no matter how many times we go flip her back she will roll back over within seconds. Should we be concerned or look into purchasing a mattress monitor? Or accept she’s is capable of controlling her head enough to breath?
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.
