I have got my first inspection next week and one thing playing on my mind is when my mindees have theyre nap, is it okay to have them assleep in a buggy downstairs as i have tried the cot upstairs and they dont settle at all,

hello... if the parent has ok'd it for you to allow the lo to sleep in the pram it should be ok, as long as they are secured in and the brake is on! its not ideal to let them sleep in the pram, but it's got to be better then nothing!! I was lucky during my inspection i had the travel cot up (up stairs ) but the lo's were to busy getting the inspector to read them stories to have a nap!!!!! i love the older toddlers.... great distraction!!!!

You need a permission form from the parent to let a child sleep in the buggy. Ofsted dont like it but if the parent has given permission for it they cant say anything. :D

I explain that if I have school runs through the day it can be very disruptive for a little one to be hoiked in and out of a cot...

Then show signed parents permission :D

As has been said you need a signed permission slip from the parents and ideally your pushchair should be one that lays flat as that is hat it has to do with - something about the spine (is is not being fully develped or something) needing to be flat. Any way could be completely wrong on all that important thing is signed permission to sho parents wishes.

I didn't realise you had to get permission for them to sleep in push chair. This is the only way I can get mine to sleep. Thye scream the house down if you show them the travel cot.

I have a travel cot, sometimes baby will sleep there, sometimes she will fall asleep in the playpen so she is left there. I have one that sleeps in a buggy as that is the only place he likes to sleep. His mum is happy with this but I do not have written permission from her. Written permission slips are getting very silly now, we will have to have written permission to look at them soon. Wont have time to play with the children soon as all my time will be taken up doing sensless paperwork and diaries.
