Infants spend the majority of their day sleeping which means it is important that parents provide the safest possible sleeping environment. The team at Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of East Cobb offers several infant care tips to keep your infant safe while sleeping.

Sleeping infants should only be on their backs

The most important thing a parent can do is place a baby on his or her back for sleeping. This should be followed strictly during an infant’s first year. “Stomach sleeping” is dangerous since it allows the potential of rebreathing old air from pockets in the mattress that can be pulled up, covering the mouth and nose. Inhaling the carbon dioxide trapped in the bedding can be both dangerous and life-threatening.

How to ensure a child’s crib or sleeping surface is safe

A second important thing to remember for safe sleeping is to provide adequate bedding and a firm sleeping surface. Always use a child-approved mattress covered by a fitted sheet that is less likely to come loose during the night. There should be no other bedding, cushions, pillows, or stuffed toys in the crib when your baby goes to bed.
