Note to help children sleep well and safely
Cover the bassinet: The baby’s sleeping bassinet needs to be carefully shielded, avoiding the case of the child slipping through the small cell of the bassinet to get out.
In the first 12 months after birth, parents should not leave a blanket near the child when sleeping, avoiding unfortunate accidents.
According to guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), children under one year old should not wear a blanket while sleeping to reduce the risk of death.
Children’s Hospital said that children who turn one year old can safely use blankets.
However, for infants, parents letting their babies sleep with blankets poses a risk of suffocation if unfortunately the blanket blocks the airway.
Therefore, parents should be careful not to leave the blanket near the child for the first 12 months after birth.
In fact, some blankets are large in thickness, multi-layered or covered with thick fur, with laces on the edges that can suffocate a child, even if he turns one year old.
