Does she sleep through?
A classic question that make parents feel like a failure.
I hate this question and it’s even worse when you’re a sleep consultant with a baby. People assume that the only right answer can be ‘yes – she’s great and sleeps 12 hours at night,’ and that anything less is a huge failure.
Many of you have been in touch after the recent halt of sales of baby sleep positioners by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA in order for your baby to sleep safely.
Firstly what I should make clear is The Lullaby Trust in the UK have never endorsed any products or changed their guidelines – their stance remains the same – no sleep positioners or nests just a clear, flat firm mattress.
I’m clearly ridiculously nosey as I love these blog posts by other people. I guess during a first time pregnancy you look at people carting round these snazzy baby changing bags and assume they contain a couple of nappies and a pack of wipes…… HA! Little did you know your bag will now contain practically everything – just like Mary Poppins.
