A mother asks The Doctors if she should be worried that her 5-month-old son who used to sleep on his back is now rolling onto his stomach the moment she puts him down. The mother worries about the baby’s risk of SIDS, sudden infant death syndrome.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry explains that while SIDS is the leading cause of death among infants ages 1 month to 1 year, it peaks at 2 – 3 months and then declines rapidly by 6 months of age.
Doctors ask parents to put their babies on their backs but by the time a baby is able to roll over onto his or her own stomach during nap and sleep time, they’re okay.
Dr. Nita tells moms that they don’t have to worry, and don’t have to stay up all night flipping their babies onto their backs. Get some rest!
