Newborns Often Sleep On Their Side?
At night, my baby was only 5 days old but his sleep was going to tilt to the right and continue, corrected again to that position. Dangerous? thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
For the safety of your baby and reduce the risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), the following are recommended sleep conditions for babies:
Put the baby to sleep in the cot alone, but sleep in one room (not a crib) with parents (until at least the baby is 1 year old)
Baby cot should be firm enough and the bed sheet should wrap the mattress tightly (not easily dislodged)
Don't put other items in the crib (including pillows, pillows, blankets, dolls, etc.)
The baby must be put to sleep in the supine position
Basically you are recommended to put your baby to sleep in the supine position (lower back), not tilted or prone. Generally, newborns cannot roll or tilt themselves (only the head will turn to the right or left). If it's only the head that turns to the right or left, then it's safe for the baby. Make sure you don't put your baby on his side or on his stomach while sleeping.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
