    Default who else puts baby outside in pram for sleep?

    Having my first child 34 yrs ago, my own were always put outside in prams for sleeps. It seems to have gone out of fashion.

    I took on 5month old baby recently and he has been out in pram most of today. We have all been outside alot today but i've noticed he has had lovely sleep today.

    I put babies outside to sleep i have a veranda at the back of the house so even if it is raining as long as they are safe, you cannot beat fresh air, and it's free.

    Mine sleep outside in prams. I tend to be out in the garden with the bigger ones so it makes more sense to me, no running up and downstairs to check and disturbing with opening doors and they sleep so much better too.

    I do! Best place for them in this day and age!

    Far too much nanny pamby goes on with babies these days, from what to eat when you're pregnant, what not to feed them, when to feed them, how to feed them, where they can sleep, where they can't sleep, keep them away from pets, wash their hands constantly, keep them away from mobile phones, tv's etc.........I won't go on because I'm starting to bore myself, let alone others!!

    I find they sleep so much better outside, but do get parents' permission before I do it as some people can be a bit funny about it.

    Given the chance, I would love to have an afternoon kip tucked up in the garden

    mine all sleep outside in a buggy until they are too big! if its cold, they are snuggled up with fleeces & raincovers.

    in fact several times over the last few weeks, I've had ALL LO sleeping outside! they like having their afternoon snooze in whatever den we've made!

    the definitely sleep much better outside.

    New mum came for another visit today and the first thing she asked was could she put the lo outside as she was asleep.

    shame round here ofsted frown n it in case foxes get in the garden and attack the baby----we do get foxes in our gardens at night, but rural foxes are more cautious and rarely seen in the day especially if you are in the garden with the baby-i wish we could all be given consistent advice from the powers that be lol

    can use the travel cot as a play pen in the garden also, if you want to keep the babies safe with their toys whilst you are doing something with the older ones outside.and if you need to nip to the loo
    I too was a nanny 33 years ago. babies always slept outside, as did my own when they were children.
