In the wake of the tragic case of Mikaeel Kular. Before he was found so many people were saying. "Why did the mother not check on him before she went to bed"
My son is 3 I don't check on him before I go to bed.
Should I be doing so???
It's really knocked me that so many people were so shocked and I've never given it a second thought.
Out daughter is still on a baby monitor she's 1.
I feel like I've neglected him.
Do you all check on your kids before you go to bed.??
What age should I be doing this until??

I do check, and I like a quick hairstroke and tuck in as others do, but DD(2) is a bit of a weirdo and the moment I touch her she starts saying "no, noooo, noooo!" in case I might be moving her. Loves her bed, does that one. Makes it a slightly less charming moment though!
