View Full Version : Sleeping baby monitoring

I check mine every 10mins and write down on a log. My policy says I will do this until they are one. I'd this ok or should I continue until they stop napping?

how do you find time to do anything else? get a monitor and check less often.

I check babies under one every 30 mins and have a monitor in room, children over 12 months I check every 50 mins - I have it written in my policies and the parents are happy with this.

I generally find it is me opening the door to check on them that wakes them up anyway, so certainly don't want to check more often. (Have to have doors pushed to, to keep the cat out of bedrooms).

I use the time when little ones are asleep to have one to one time with older children or to play board games that are impossible with a lo trying to help, or sometimes if they are all asleep at the same time I may just pop on the forum!
