Babies are just so adorable but they are at their cutest state when they’re sleeping. That’s when you just want to kiss them all over.
Your baby’s bedtime is one of the most precious moments. It’s that moment when you have to be very gentle so that your little one can sleep comfortably. Although there will be times when you just want to get it over and done with, you definitely want to make sure that your baby gets enough sleep. At the same time, you want to make sure that your baby is safe.
However, there are a couple of unsafe practices that moms do each time they put their baby to bed. You’re not aware of it but you might actually be endangering your little one.
Baby experts like Dr. Stephen H. Sheldon, DO, FAAP, member of the National Sleep Foundation board of directors, Joyce Davis, president of non-profit Keeping Babies Safe, and Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, board-certified pediatrician and author of Mama Doc Medicine: Finding Calm and Confidence in Parenting, Child Health, and Work-Life Balance, all vouch that some practices are unsafe and can be dangerous for your baby.
