spitty/gassy, sleep positioner, SIDS...?
Ive been letting my 6d old sleep on my chest, mostly after feeds, with me propped up to promote skin to skin and keep him elevated after feeds to help with gassiness and lots of spit up (have OAL)
I also give him a paci after feeds to let him suck for comfort, hoping this will help him keep his food down. I think it helps and it has not hurt his latch.
However, i cant sleep on my back at all, so a few times, i put him in a co-sleeper next to my bed and i have a sleep positioner in the co-sleeper because its tilted up and that should help with spitting up. Plus its so easy to swaddle him nice and cozy in it.
But i just read that sleep positioners are not recommended because of SIDS? I didnt know this.
Should i let him lie flat in the co-sleeper? do any of you use sleep positioners? Im talking about the little wedge that tilts them up slightly and has little pillows on the side to cozy them in.
