That's what we were taught in prenatal with my kids. They changed it later on. I was just doing what I was taught. Now I question everything.
I never had a kid, but as a 14 year old, sleeping on one's stomach is best.
When mine were babies, I was warned not to let them sleep on their backs. Tummy or side was good, but not on their back. Because if the spit up they could aspirate some of the vomit and choke on it.
Yes, research and doctors keep changing that.
I would agree with you more...my son did fine,on back they spit up could choke too death would NOT have it
I found out the hard way by putting a old friend's baby on his belly and she went fricking nuts. I thought putting the baby on his back with the soft spot would hurt him, but apparently I was wrong. Ever since then, the girl never trusted me at all around her kids. I thought it was a bit over-dramatic for a one time mistake.
yup of course.... because of suffocation...
Baby advice changes all the time. Current recommendations say that sleeping on their back is safer.
