What about this sleeping on the back thing? It used to be that sleeping on the tummy was the norm. Now it's the back. On the tummy a baby may get vomit on the sheets, but isn't as likely to have it plug their mouth and prevent breathing.
Yes, I've heard about SIDS, but I've also heard that matress fireproofing treatments are a causal contributor and that covering a child's matress with plastic reduces SIDS 50%. Ok, how about the cosleeping situation of a bed that is well aired, doesn't have crib bumpers to trap the bad gasses, and has moms breath to listen and respond to. (and I never used new baby clothes to avoid fire retardants)
Aren't these enough to move our babies back to their tummies?
