    I did:

    2. Sleep baby with head and face uncovered
    3. Keep baby smoke free before birth and after
    4. Provide a safe sleeping environment - I believe it is safe, but it wouldn't pass SIDS guidelines.

    6. Breastfeed baby if you can

    My babies have always preferred side sleeping.

    2,3,4,5,6!! Didnt know they were the guidelines though, it's just common sense to me. Sometimes he sleeps on his tummy when I'm right there, always on his back when I'm not... So kinda 1 too lol

    2,3, 4 and 6 but just because they are common sense to me anyway. My babies were tummy sleepers and we co-slept often.

    All of them except we had to move him into his own room at about 3 mi this coz he outgrew the bassinet and the cot didn't fit in our room.

    We also have a movement and sound monitor

    I did everything except sleep him in our room. Our room is tiny (as is our house). His room is next to ours and I can actually hear him breathing/moving/chatting whatever from my bed anyway.

    Now that he is older he rolls onto his tummy to sleep straight away but up until he could roll he always slept on his back.
