Health Tip: Avoid Baby Sleep Positioners

Keep cribs free of objects and toys

(HealthDay News) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning parents against the use of baby sleep positioners.

While these products may purport to prevent an infant from rolling, the products can lead to suffocation, the FDA says.

To help keep baby safe, the agency suggests:

  • Avoid infant sleep positioners of any kind.
  • Do not use pillows, blankets, sheets, or quilts in a crib. Dress babies for the season to stay warm without extra blankets and sheets.
  • Keep cribs bare of objects and toys.
  • Always put baby on his or her back in a crib.
