Congratulations on your pregnancy, what an exciting adventure you are about to embark on! As you get closer to your due date, you’re possibly pondering (fretting) over what to pack in your hospital bag as all new mums do!
As any Mum will attest, getting enough sleep can be a near impossibility. With child #1 waking up early, and child #2 still struggling to sleep through, it’s highly likely that every time you hear the recommendation of ‘7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep’, and then hear about just how bad it is for you to NOT get that, you’re pretty ready to throw your phone in the toilet (if your 2-year-old didn’t already!).
Here are the facts so you can make your own informed decision. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reviewed numerous studies and reports on infant tragic sleep events and came up with the following recommendations. They apply especially within the first 6 months and up to 12 months of age. According to the AAP, the safest place for babies to sleep is: on their own sleep surface (i.e. in their own bassinet, cot etc) within sensory range of the parent (i.e. within range to hear, smell and be aware of the parent).
