Good sleep habits are important for your baby’s health and well-being. There is nothing more peaceful than a sleeping baby and we spend a lot of time, especially in the first few months trying to adjust to our babies sleep patterns.
We pay a lot of attention to how and when our babies sleep, however we also need to consider where our babies sleep. Not every place is a safe place, and accidents can happen. Babies up to the age of 6 months are especially vulnerable because they can’t turn their heads or shift positions like older babies. That is why we need to make sure they do not sleep in places where they could slip down into cushions, get caught in blankets or straps, or places that can harm them. Suffocation can happen in dangerous places like couches, car seats, chairs or in beds that babies share with adults, children or pets. Accidents can happen to anyone, and they can be prevented!
