And so when my first child was born I used a sleep positioner to keep him on his back, one of those foam wedges that prevents your baby from rolling over onto his belly. This week the CDC finally published the data that supports my hunch: The consumer product safety commission has also received dozens of reports of infants found in dangerous sleeping positions after being put to sleep in a sleep positioner. The irony is terrible: But they really cause suffocation and death.
Most of the infants who died were placed on their sides to sleep, and later found lying on their stomach, dead. Many had their faces close to the foam positioner.
It is unclear if these infants died of suffocation or of the other proposed mechanisms of SIDS. All but one of the infants who died were age three months or less. Most infants who die of SIDS are right around the age when they learn to roll. That learn-to-roll timeframe is the most dangerous for SIDS.
The only way for a baby to sleep safely is on his or her back in a crib.
Keep baby smoke free before birth and after 4. And they claim to have the only crib wedge that is made of premium memory foam and a soft cotton sheet.
The only things in the crib should be the baby and a tightly fitting crib sheet. No sleep positioners, bumpers, blankets, stuffed animals, etc.
Please see my related post that answers these questions. My colleague and pediatric sleep medicine researcher Dr.
Video of the Day History Up until the early s, parents were advised to put babies down for sleeping on their stomachs. Will never go flat on your baby! Our 3 month old daughter has horrible GERD since birth.
James Kemp also wrote an excellent post about co-sleeping. The good news is that babies cannot die by choking on their own spit-up. Healthy babies have a gag reflex, and just like adults they will cough if spit-up gets in their wind pipe aka trachea.
This product can only be obtained with a prescription. GERD does not cause death.
And I know that he has a twin in heaven watching out for him each day.
