FDA Issues Warning about Baby Sleep Positioners
Every parent wants their baby to sleep soundly and comfortably, which is why companies market “sleep positioners” to parents of newborns. Typically, the positioners consist of a mat with two raised bolsters or a wedge to raise the baby’s head, and are often called “nests.” Manufacturers may promise that the positioners prevent rolling over, reflux, or flat head syndrome.
But the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns parents to avoid using sleep positioners, saying that they can cause suffocation and, tragically, lead to death. You can read the FDA warning here.
