Hi. Apologies if this question has already been asked but I was hoping to get some clarity on the recommendation regarding lambs wool in a cot. Does the Red Nose recommendation to not have any lambs wool refer only to loose 'lambs skin wool'? I was hoping to understand whether Red Nose considered wool mattress protectors or toppers to be unsafe as well? These are made to the size of the cot with skirts to tuck in under the mattress and keep them in place. Many thanks
Is it OK to sleep baby on a mattress that contains wool inside the mattress? For example this bassinet mattress state they comply with the standard for firmness, but I have read elsewhere that wool is not always a safe material?
I have a newborn baby and was wondering if it’s safe to use the Mamaway Rockaroo from birth. It’s recommended From birth. When I use it my son's head goes to the side and down slightly so his head just doesn’t look supported. I know red nose says newborn babies should be on a flat surface and the rocker is curved. Is that safe to use now to sit him in for 30-60 min only? Or should I wait until he is older?
My son is 19 weeks old. He is almost rolling back to tummy but a bit slower rolling tummy to back. I’m not swaddling him at night, he’s now in an armless sleeping bag. And he’s in a cot in our room. He’s started sleeping on his side, with his upper body and head in side lying but his lower body half way between sideways and on his back. I’m nervous he’s going to end up on his stomach, but he seems to be sleeping really well in that position and finds his way back there no matter how many times I return him to his back. What should I do?
Hi, I'm wondering what mattress should I use in the cot. I investigated this question and found a lot of answers, so I just got confused. What I'm looking for should be made from breathable material, orthopaedic, keeps baby cool while sleeping and of course comfortable. (Also fits in the cot and firm) I'm not sure if pocket sprung is good or natural latex foam is breathable. I think coir is ok and high resilient cold foam is fine. I have also concern about the mattress inner and outer cover, what I found has about 60% polyester and 40% lyocell or cotton for outer cover and non-woven polypropylene for inner cover. Do you have any suggestion about it? Thank you
We are travelling in January and where we stay has 2 x bunk beds in a room. I’m looking at options for safe sleeping for my 5 month old. Would something like the Koo-di Sun & Sleep Pop-Up Bubble Cot placed on top of the lower bunk bed be ok? I know a portacot is the best option but I don’t think there will be enough room between the two sets of bunks for one and im concerned my Bub will be grown out of her bassinet/sitting up by then.
