Are Infant Sleep Positioners Dangerous?

Some parents may have been informed that Infant Sleep Positioners (ISP) could help reduce SIDS and help mold baby’s heads better. But it seems that there was something overlooked on some of these ISPs, and this has to do with potential suffocation for babies as per a new report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Some sleep positioners are neat for aiding parents when it comes to properly caring and giving their babies the ample support when they sleep. However a certain foam-and-cloth bolster in the sleep positioned could somehow trap a baby’s mouth and nose and thus lead to potential suffocation if not attended.
ISPs are still a great way to help out parents and provide babies with a neat way to sleep wherever they may be. But just to make sure, parents may do well to seek suggestions from the child’s doctor just to be on the safe side. Do not just go and buy the first thing you see. Rather, seek advice and then buy the sleep positioner as recommended after consulting the doctor.
