Danger in using car seats, sitting and carrying devices for sleeping infants

24 abril 2015

Sleep-related deaths are the most common cause of death for infants 1-12 months of age. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants sleep on their back on a firm mattress, without loose bedding. However, many parents use sitting or carrying devices, such as car seats, swings, or bouncers, as alternative sleeping environments, which could lead to potential injury or death. Researchers now describe how the improper use of these items can lead to infant deaths. The elapsed time from when the infants were last seen alive to when they were discovered ranged from as little as four minutes to up to 11 hours.
