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.
That makes Moonlight Slumber a winner with Hiccapop outstanding also. Once she's stronger, the risk also decreases see right below.
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. 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.
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.
The positioners, sometimes called nests or wedges, are intended to keep the baby in one place on their back and are marketed as suitable for use for infants of up to six months of age. These recommendations include laying the baby on a firm mattress, on his or her back in an empty crib. I am by NO MEANS suggesting parents ignore the warning but am concerned about what will become of the children who really do need elevation in the mean time.
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.
