    her monitor is stressing me out

    Advertisements
    every night now addilynn makes her way to the edge of her crib and sleeps on her side (pictured below) or arms and knees and her sensor pad (in the middle) doesn't pick up her breathing and goes off and of course i freak out and run in there and she's fine. it has happened the last three nights.

    it was fine before when she was sleeping on her back in the middle cause she didn't move much. i have the sensitivity all the way up on it so idk if i should just turn it down or off. i usually scoot her back to the middle. i know she should be fine since she's almost 7 months but im still paranoid. i know some people have two sensor pads for each side.. i might have to get another one but i get so freaked that im awake for another hour after it happens because my heart is beating like a jillion beats per second.

    this is how she sleeps

    Yeah I was just get a breathable bumper and I never had any kind of monitor so I'd probably turn off the monitor.

    Agree with others... I would take the bumper off and either leave it off or get a breathable one.

    Personally, I would also turn off the sensor.

    The bumper wasn't really my question and I'm not too worried about it. It has nothing to do with the sensor pad.

    Non-breathable bumpers actually play a major role in the reason for needing a sensor pad. Because she rolls around and can move close to the end, it becomes a risk of her getting so close that she starts breathing in more CO2 then is safe. If you want to keep the bumper, then I suggest getting enough sensor pads to cover the entire area where she sleeps.

    I think I am going to get another one. One for each side and I meant having nothing to do with how it works because its not actually touching it like the mattress is.

    Agreed. The American Academy of Pediatrics say that bumper pads are unsafe. I would take them off.
