Is The Baby Less Than 2 Months Allowed To Sleep In An Oblique Position?
Morning, I want to ask if babies under 2 months of age can they sleep on their side?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are various kinds of things that seem simple, but need more attention when talking about babies. One of them is his sleeping position. Infants less than 7 months of age need to sleep for more than 15 hours a day. The duration of the baby's sleep makes it often sleep in various positions, including prone and tilted. Unfortunately, these two positions are quite dangerous for him.
Infants who sleep on their side make it easier to change their position to the stomach, while the prone position can significantly increase the risk of sudden infant death syndrome. This is because the prone sleeping position puts your baby's face too close to the sheets or pillows which makes him breathe the same air over and over again and does not get enough oxygen. This can lead to infant death. Therefore, the best position is on your back so that he can be trained to flip himself.
In addition to sleeping on his side and stomach, which must also be considered are toys and stuffed animals that can overwrite when sleeping, and it is not recommended also to sleep with him on the same mattress, but place them in a baby's bed separately. So, hopefully answering your question.
