Creating a safe sleep bedding environment for your baby

Good sleeping habits are important for your baby’s physical and emotional well-being. An important part of establishing good sleeping habits is the sleep environment – where your child sleeps, the kind of crib or baby bed, the type of mattress, and so on.
Creating a safe sleep environment will also reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), which is when a baby younger than one year of age dies unexpectedly while sleeping. Putting your baby to sleep on his back reduces the risk of SIDS.
The Canadian Paediatric Society recommends that babies under one year of age sleep on their backs in cribs that meet Canadian Government safety standards. Babies should not sleep in their parents’ bed, which is called bedsharing. Adult beds are not safe for babies. Many large-scale studies have shown that bedsharing can put babies at greater risk for entrapment and suffocation.
If you want your baby to be near you during the night, you can put a crib in your room, next to your bed. This is called cosleeping. Many mothers find that this makes night-time breastfeeding easier. This type of sleeping arrangement may also further reduce the risk of SIDS.
Whatever you choose, here are some things you should know to help you and your baby get a good and safe night’s sleep.
General guidelines

  • For the first year of your baby’s life, the safest place to sleep is in the child’s own baby crib, on her back.
  • When your baby can turn over on his own, there’s no need to force your baby into the back sleep position. Foam wedges or towel rolls to keep babies on their side should not be used.
  • Infants should never sleep on pillows, air mattresses, waterbeds, cushions, soft materials or loose bedding. Even when you are travelling, your baby must have a safe place to sleep. Car seats and infant carriers are not to be used to replace the crib for your baby’s sleep.
  • A baby should sleep in a room that is quiet, dark and at a slightly cool temperature.
  • Consider dressing your baby in sleepers so that you don’t need a blanket to cover her.
  • Keep your baby away from cigarette smoke. Babies whose mothers smoked during pregnancy, and babies who continue to be exposed to smoke after birth are at an increased risk of SIDS.
  • Never nap or sleep with your baby or let your baby sleep alone on a couch, sofa or armchair. This increases the risk of suffocation.

Babies under one year of age should sleep on their backs in their own cribs

  • Be sure your baby cot meets government safety standards. 
  • Place your baby to sleep on his back on a firm, flat surface. Do not use eiderdowns (a comforter filled with a type of down), comforters, bulky blankets, bumper pads or pillow-like items in your baby’s bed.
  • Do not leave a bottle of milk or juice in your baby’s bed.
  • Establish a calming bedtime routine that is consistent and predictable.
  • Try to keep nap times and bedtime the same every day, even on weekends.
  • Set aside 10 min to 30 min to do something special with your baby before bed. Depending on your baby’s age, this could be a quiet talk, quiet play or reading.
  • Allow infants to fall asleep on their own so that they can learn to comfort themselves.

The practical benefits of bed sharing are obvious. Not only are parents close by to respond to the baby if something goes wrong, but co-sleeping makes it easier for the breastfeeding mom to nurse throughout the night. Then, of course, there’s the irresistible sweet intimacy of it. “There is an instinctive need for the mother to be close to her baby,” says Cynthia Epps, M.S., a certified lactation educator at the Pump Station in Santa Monica, Calif. Working women who don’t get to see their babies all day may be especially attracted to co-sleeping to make up for the missed contact. “Keeping the baby close, with skin-to-skin contact, calms the baby,” says Epps. “And it can cement the emotional bond between mother and child.”

Samantha Gadsden, a birth doula in Caerphilly, Wales, shares a bed with her three children, even though the U.K.’s National Health Service shares the AAP’s stance against co-sleeping. When other risk factors are not present, official discouraging of co-sleeping is “coercion and scare-mongering, and treating women like they are not intelligent,” Gadsden told BBC News in November 2018. “It’s biologically normal to co-sleep,” she said, adding that parents should be informed of the pros, as wells as the cons, of bed-sharing, including the potential benefit of helping babies to regulate their breathing and temperature.

How Much Sleep Do Babies Need?
Sleep patterns will change over the first year of a baby’s life, including the number of hours of sleep needed and the duration of sleep periods throughout the day and night.[/color]

  • 0 to 3 months: It’s normal for newborns to spend 14 to 17 hours1 asleep in a 24-hour day, broken into shorter periods to accommodate feeding, diaper changes, and interaction with their family. Breastfed infants usually need to eat more frequently than bottle-fed infants2, about every 2 hours versus every 3 hours. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine3 advises parents not to worry if their newborn’s sleep pattern doesn’t match the projections, as these amounts can vary before the first 4 months.
  • 3 to 6 months: Starting at around 3 months of age, an infant’s daily sleep needs drop to 12 to 15 hours. Around this time, sleep also starts consolidating into longer periods4 as babies are able to go longer without feeding. Sometime during this period is when most babies start to sleep through the night, though there are exceptions to the rule.
  • 6 to 12 months: From 6 months onward, babies do the bulk of their sleeping at night. However, other issues such as teething, growth spurts, illnesses, or sleep regressions may start leading to nighttime awakenings. Parents may opt to use more specific sleep-training strategies if babies aren’t sleeping through the night at this stage.

SEO | Cloaking | Is it safe to remove Third-party / Analytical scripts for crawlers/bots? Is this considered as cloaking?

Is it considered as cloaking if I remove third party scripts such as google tag manager, other analytics based scripts tags for crawlers/bots?

By removing these external javascripts I will surely have improved page performance(reduced page load time) for the Google Crawler and for effective SEO.

Though the question is related to Will disabling javascript be considered as cloaking by Google But, unlike there I am trying to remove only Third party Scripts which are not vital for the site from crawlers perspective.

Can I do so? Please suggest.

Is it safe to bring an item like a Bag of Holding into a Genie Warlock’s Bottle?

Since the Genie’s Vessel is described as an object/vessel and never as an item, is it safe to bring a Portable Hole, Bag of Holding, or Heward’s Handy Haversack into the bottle?
If your vessel is a ring per the examples, is it splitting hairs to not call it an item?

Genie’s Vessel: — Tashas p.73
The vessel is a Tiny object, and you can use it as a spellcasting focus for your warlock spells.

Bottled Respite: — Tashas p.74
The interior of the vessel is an extradimensional space in the shape of a 20-foot-radius cylinder, 20 feet high, and resembles your vessel.

Bag of Holding: — DMG p.154
Placing a bag of holding inside an extradimensional space created by a Heward’s handy haversack, portable hole, or similar item instantly destroys both items and opens a gate to the Astral Plane.

Is it safe to pg_dump and pg_restore a new postgres database that has malware?

I’m pretty sure there is a crypto bot eating up my CPU through a postgres script. I would like to create an entirely new VM, and move my database with it using pg_dump and pg_restore. I already checked my postgres for new users, tables, databases; couldn’t find anything odd there which could comprise me if I move my data. I’m a little worried however because the bot is some how getting access to my postgres, and nothing else on my VM.

Thank you for the help.

Is it always safe to use WITH SCHEMABINDING in a UDF?

SO I have been reading about WITH SCHEMABINDING and how it can improve the performance of queries using a scalar UDF by omitting the table spool operator from the execution plan. I think I understand halloween protection.

My question is: If I add WITH SCHEMABINDING to a UDF used in a SP is it possible that a SP does not give the same results? If yes in what scenario?

Is it safe to use the Windows “Compress directory to save space” feature on the directory that contains my MySQL general log file?

I have changed MySQL 8 on my Windows 10 development machine to write logfiles (general log and slow queries log) to "E:\mysql logfiles". I’d like to compress this directory using the Windows "Compress Directory to save space" advanced feature in the Windows 10 directory properties to save space (currently my logfile is over 50 GB). I’m wondering though: is this a good idea? Or will this break MySQL in (subtle or not) ways?

Is it safe to extract file from potentially infected disk

I have a hard drive used for years, there are windows and many personal files on it. What I called "files" are images, musics, documents (pdf or docx), but not programs. All the "files" were not initially infected. As I said in the title, the hard drive may be infected by malware (I did not safely use it).

My question is : can I extract these personal files on a safe computer without risk of contamination ? In other words, may these files be infected and spread malware ?

Is Deluge safe to use still when it’s not been updated since the first part of 2017?

https://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/Download

https://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/deluge/windows/?C=M;O=D

The latest version of Deluge for Windows that can actually be downloaded and installed is deluge-1.3.15-win32-py2.7.exe from 2017-05-12.

That’s well over three years ago now!

They have been discussing the problems of releasing the new version for years, but nothing comes from it. Like so many slowly dying (but never quite gone) projects I’ve painfully witnessed in the last many years.

Doesn’t this more than likely make it extremely unsafe for me to be running this software on my machine? I feel as if it’s an open door to my machine, almost certainly containing unpatched exploits.

Yet the sad reality is that there are no alternatives. uTorrent is an ad-infested spyware nightmare since many years, and others… well, just like with browsers, I’ve given up on searching because there’s just nothing out there. Nobody seems to care one bit about the entirely desktop computer anymore.

Can I still use this ancient software? If so, how much longer?
