now that your baby is swaddled and ready
00:06
for sleep there are different positions
00:07
that you can do to figure out what’s
00:10
most comfortable for your baby it is
00:12
always the most safe to put your baby to
00:14
sleep on their back
00:16
that’s because it lowers the incidence
00:17
of SIDS it is much much safer for your
00:20
baby however there are lots of different
00:23
ways your babies can sleep on their back
00:25
some babies can sleep upright if they’re
00:28
in their swing if they’re in a glider if
00:31
they’re on a bouncy chair as long as
00:33
they’re swaddled on their back you can
00:36
position them in different ways and in
00:38
different apparatus you may have in the
00:41
house that will make them the most
00:42
comfortable some babies are perfectly
00:45
fine being swaddled and placed perfectly
00:48
on their back some babies prefer to be
00:50
on their side a little bit and by doing
00:53
this you could roll a towel or two and
00:56
place it behind the baby this way so
00:58
this side baby comfortable for your baby
01:01
or this side may be comfortable it takes
01:04
a couple times of trial and error for
01:07
you to figure out what’s the most
01:08
comfortable for your baby there are also
01:11
items called crib wedges that go
01:14
underneath the crib sheet that elevate
01:17
the baby’s head so they’re still on
01:19
their back but their head is elevated a
01:22
little bit and this is also helpful for
01:24
babies who have reflux or colic it helps
01:28
the contents of their stomach stay down
01:29
during sleep and usually provides better
01:32
sleep for the baby you wouldn’t use a
01:34
sleep positioner because those have been
01:37
actually outlawed now by the American
01:39
Academy of Pediatrics but this wedge
01:42
goes under the sheet within a crib and
01:44
simply elevates the babies of head so
01:49
whatever position you find works for
01:51
your baby just make sure that the baby
01:53
swaddle that their areas for breathing
01:56
are completely clear and that they’re
01:58
always in some form on their back
