Do you know that there are several healthy routines new mothers should get into to ensure the baby's safety when it sleeps at night? Baby's safest resting position and preventing suffocation during sleep are top of mind immediately following delivery.
In light of a recent piece on Medical News Today, we will examine some of the steps first-time mothers may take to ensure their babies are safe while they sleep. Relax and take in this article while you get some valuable knowledge.
How can new mothers ensure the safety of their infants during the night?
According to healthline First, always make sure your infant is sleeping on their back. Babies should sleep in this position because it aids in the elimination of fluids.
2. Make sure the baby is in a completely firm and flat position or sleeping surface so that they can't roll over or fall off. If using a foam, ensure sure it is level and has sufficient density.
Next, make sure there are no hanging objects, cords, or wires in the baby's sleeping area. The baby won't be able to accidentally hang himself/herself while napping.
It's okay to sleep in the same room as your kid if you have to, but you shouldn't sleep in the same bed. Babies, especially newborns, are extremely vulnerable and need special care.
5. Keep the baby's sleeping area at a comfortable temperature; don't overheat the crib or the room. No extremes of heat or cold should be applied to newborns. Take caution around these items.
Don't wrap anything around the baby's face that could smother it, as instructed in number 6. If things go badly, this might become extremely risky.
