Safe infant sleeping advice from Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy in Fairfield, Ohio

Posted on 06-11-2014


There are a number of things to consider regarding your infant's sleeping patterns. Our team at Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Fairfield has compiled useful advice for child care providers and parents. Reducing discomfort creates better sleeping habits.

1. Choose your young infant's bedding carefully

We recommend following the recommendations of the AAP (American Association of Pediatrics) by placing your infant on a firm mattress that provides a flat, even surface. Refrain from using a pillow and heavy quilts. Remove soft toys and other accessories from the crib as they can be suffocation hazards. The best advice is to have nothing in the crib other than a tight fitting sheet and your baby.

2. Check on your child regularly as part of a good child care routine

Check on your baby every now and again while they sleep. Make sure that they are positioned comfortably, and are sleeping soundly.

3. Know how to put your infant in a safe sleeping position

Always place your infant to sleep on their back. This is the most ideal position for an infant to sleep. The AAP states that you should not put your child on their side to sleep, as they can roll back onto their stomach.
