Dangers of sleeping with baby
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2007-06-28 15:36

If parents allow an infant to sleep in their bed, that may seem like a natural and loving act.

But it's not a good idea, the American Academy of Family Physicians warns. The group lists these possible risks:

Suffocation of the baby from a parent rolling onto or next to the baby.

Suffocation of the baby from being trapped between a mattress and a headboard, or mattress and the wall.

Suffocation of the baby from sleeping face-down on the mattress, pillow or blanket.

Strangulation of the baby from the infant's head being trapped in part of the headboard. (HealthDay News)
