    Default What's it called

    Possibly one for the recent parents on here !!!!

    When my nipper was a baby some nearly 5 years ago, we had a product that my sister in law brough over from Oz, it went into the cot and was made of sponge and was a large toblerone shape on one side and a smaller toblerone shape on the other

    The baby laid in between the "toblerones" and it aided in stopping baby from rolling over, the Blooming Marvellous website is down and has been for a few days and I know they sell them, but can't for the life of me think what they are called to Google them.

    This is kind of what it looks like if you look at it head on, the baby would lie in between the triangles, parallel to them



    I know this is a bizarre post, but we really found it useful and want to find another one !!!!!

    Cheers

    Wasn't even aware of that sort of 'device'! Is it something recommended over here? - had never been aware of it.

    I know that it's recommended that a young baby sleeps on his back. We found with Cameron that he just did it naturally. It's only literally in the past couple of weeks that we've noticed that he's often sleeping on his side, but he's never roller over and tried to sleep on his front. (He's 8.5 months now).

    Exactly, same with us as first time parents. Combination of taking note of current 'recommendations' along with a big dollop of common sense/what we felt was right etc.

    If it worked for Damian with his first one then I can see why he's after one again - I'd just never really seen them.

    The main reason for babies to sleep on their backs is to prevent sids, once they have the ability to roll over the % of sids is greatly reduced. By then they really have their own ability to make sure they can breathe properly when lying on their tummy.

    Chloe's nearly 6 months now and has been rolling over quite often, admittedly we keep checking on her when she sleeps and roll her back over

    They can usually roll over onto their tummy's but can't roll back over again, this is where i would imagine devices like these could cause a problem, once they roll over what if they get smothered or wedged against said object?

    I guess it's just what parents feel is best for their child

    Yes, it worked for us very well, I know we could use rolled up sheets etc., but it was also useful in the travel cot and was quite transportable without taking up too much space.

    Judging by this article http://www.independent.co.uk/news/bu...s-1223080.html Blooming Marvellous could be on their way out as well

    My partner feels more vunerable with our current pregnancy, we have had some scares, and a massive bleed at 10 weeks, which we thought was the end, but it turned out to still be there etc, currently only 7 weeks to go !!!

    She even wants a new monitor with the movement sensors, so this little sleeping device is just another aid to piece of mind.
