Safest way for your infant to sleep while in their crib/bassinet .

This is more of a statement, but I major in Early Childhood education, and I wanted to share a little information with you,
When placing your infant to bed [or nap) in their crib, OF COURSE dont use fluffy bedding or stuffed animals, but when putting them in their crib, DONT put them at the head of the crib, lay their head in the middle of the crib and have their feet close to the foot of the crib, its proven to reduce suffocation, and its just safer in general, and I mean what Mother doesnt want their children to be safe! But anyways, if you have any questions, or would like some more advice PM me , I love to help :)

  • I do that anyway because DS has started to squirm around so much (at 8 months) that he somtimes gets his head squished up at the top of the crib.
