Back. But wished we could have put our son on his stomach or side. It doesn't just cause flat heads to be on their backs, I really think it can do something developmentally because of the way it affects head shape and how the brain sits repeatedly in the same position nights. Our son has a mild, unexplained speech and motor apraxia, no reason, no dx. They need to figure out which kids are truly, actually at risk for SIDS so that those who aren't can be on their stomachs.

the hardwood floor and "toughen him up" part are ridiculous but there are MANY infant experts that advise agains propping an infant up in any kind of seat or contraption and recommend laying a baby on the floor for most of the time (on a soft blanket though!). But a bassinet is fine and even a little time in the rock and play is okay. Please override him on this - that would be very uncomfortable for your poor DB. And, swaddling is so helpful [ Reply | More ]
