Round thats crazy! Have i mentioned it here before how Hero loves these cheap talking dolls????? Did I assist the birth in the spoting goods isle??? hahaha!!
Hearty there is also a huge debate on the co-sleeping and SIDS. Apparently if its done right there is no danger. I LOVE co-sleeping with Hero, especially when she was 3-5 months it was the best and i did it all the time.
Luca has always liked a really warm room and loads of layer. That boy loves to boil! You'll soon realise what suits them.
In terms of SIDS risks, well a girl in my aqua natal group lost her son at 14 weeks when she was co-sleeping with him. She didn't roll onto him (as proved at the PM) but the coronor did suggest at the inquiry that he would probably be alive if they weren't cosleeping. It was a very hot night though (I remember that night and Luca was unsettled) and she had been a few glasses of wine at a BBQ that day which I know increases the risks because of toxins. Anyway it without a doubt scared me from cosleeping and the only times i've done it since is at my parents house because Luca just won't sleep a full night there so I usually bring him in with me, but only now he's much older. But with that shock and fear of co-sleeping came me doing some proper sleep training and not just doing the easy option of having him in bed with me, which hopefully is why he's been a really good sleeper most of the time apart from when he's ill. He generally does 11-12 hour stints at night and has done for ages.
OMG Cesca, that is so sad! That must have been so scary for all the other moms to hear. So are you saying that wine increases the risk because she was breast feeding?
God, pregnancy is just the tip of the iceberg with worrying, isn't it? Once she's born, I'm seriously going to be worrying more than I am already. How do you moms even sleep? I feel like I'll want to watch her sleeping every second to make sure she's ok.
I found the whole sids issue very confusing so much information I was always scared of cosleepimg although we did do it a few times not that I realky sleep. Ideal room temp is between 18 and 20 I was always worried about Benjamin being to hot when I saw my midwife after he was born Id get her to check if he was the right temp we were told he should have an extra layer on than us. Our moniter has a built in thermometer which has been handy we dont have the heating on at night either.
My confusion at the moment is about bumpers and quilts are they allowed them. Benjamin is a rule braker I put him on his back at the botom of his cot but when I go and check on him hes normally on his tummy at the top of his cot He would never take a dummy.
Round a love your dream thats brillant hope.
Allie I would move Alistair when you feel ready I know I wasn't ready before and it would of caused to much anxiety but so far its gone ok I felt ready to do it. We're at my mum and dads now for easter so hes back in with us
Oh cesca that is awful, poor girl. Same thing happened to a friend of a friend of mine, totally freaked me out and I have never co-slept! I read somewhere that co-sleeping is the main cause of SIDS.
Poppy has bumpers and a quilt, her bumpers are cot wraps though so completely safe. I only put the quilt over her when it's chilly but I feel shes old enough to move it if it did cover her face though!
Again having a monitor that lets me know she's breathing is a god send!x
We've not used bumpers as thought they were a no no but he does have a tendency to stick his legs through the bars of his cot and then gets stuck or bangs his head. I thought as he was older he could have a quilt found this gorgeous one but on the back of the pack it says not suitabe for under 12 months.
Hearty its definitely full of anxietys I was forever checking Benjamin when he was first born, Ive relaxed as hes got older but must admit I still check on now just not as much. I worry about so many things and fine theres always something new to worry about but its the best thing in the world being a mum.
