A new study by researchers at MIT and Harvard Medical School found that infants who slept in cribs or sleep bags are less likely to get SIDS or suffocation deaths in the first year of life.
Researchers said that infant sleepers are more likely to develop respiratory problems later in life and that their exposure to COVID-19 is “potentially important for the development of other important behaviors.”
[Reuters] In a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers from MIT and the Harvard Medical Department found that babies who slept on a crib were more likely than infants who had a crib, bed or chair in the home, to have SIDS.
Researchers found that, compared with infants who were on a normal bed, babies who had sleepers had a 50 percent higher risk of SIDS in the second year of their life.
The study authors, Dr. Christopher S. Wirthlin and Dr. Jennifer L. Miller, analyzed data from more than 100,000 infants and toddlers from the Massachusetts Bay Children’s Hospital and the National Center for Health Statistics between 2006 and 2014.
The study also found that the more infants slept on the crib, the more likely they were to have respiratory problems, like asthma, in the years following birth.
The researchers concluded that infants sleeping on a sleep bed or crib are “at greater risk of serious complications and morbidity after birth and may be at greater risk for hospitalization if the infant is stillborn.”
Sleep on a bed or couch, or in a crib or crib with a full mattress, is one of the safest places to be, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a crib nearby, especially if you live in an apartment building.
The authors of the study cautioned that they only looked at a small portion of SIDs cases in the study.
But the authors said that, “there is evidence that sleepers may be more vulnerable to SIDS and may also be at increased risk for other serious complications.”
Sleep on a chair is a good idea for parents who have a lot of young children.
It’s a good choice if you’re trying to keep your home clean and tidy, or if you are just trying to avoid a messy house.
The new study adds to a growing body of research that suggests that sleep on a couch is safer than a crib.
A new paper published in PLOS One by Harvard researchers found that when infants sleep on beds, they’re more likely not to suffocate.
The authors also found a “small but significant” increase in the risk of hospitalization and death from SIDS after bedsharing.
Sleep on the floor also is safe.
According to the researchers, infants who sleep on their backs, or on their sides, are about 30 percent less likely than their peers to have a COVID infection.
Sleep on your sides and arms is safer because you’re not leaning forward or down.
And, according to the study authors:The study authors said they did not know how long the sleepers would stay on the bed, but noted that, because infants can’t get up or lie down, it could take up to two months before bedsharing is safe again.
Sleepers, however, should be encouraged to continue using the cribs they’re using, the authors added.
