<P>Always make sure the waterproof mattress protector is strong, not torn, and a tight fit. The mattress should be firm, flat and clean and not elevated. Elevating the head of a cot has not been shown to improve reflux for babies under 12 months of age and increases the risk of SUDI. A pillow, cushion or beanbag is not a safe mattress. In portable or ‘porta cots use the firm, clean and well- fitting mattress that is supplied with the portable cot. Dont add additional padding under or over the mattress or an additional mattress. The baby can get trapped in gaps created and this is extremely dangerous. Again, the mattress should be firm, flat and clean and not elevated. Elevating the head of a cot has not been shown to improve reflux for babies under 12 months of age and increases the risk of SUDI. All portable cots sold in Australia must meet the Australian Standard for portable cots AS 2195 and carry a label to say so. Safe bedding - Is the bedding safe? Remove pillows, doonas, loose bedding or fabric, lambs wool, bumpers and soft toys from the cot. Soft and puffy bedding in the cot is unnecessary and may cover your babys face and obstruct babys breathing. If you wrap or swaddle your baby, do not cover babys head. Discontinue the use of a wrap when baby can roll from back to tummy and to back again.
