AAP releases updated sleep guidelines for infants

The AAP released an updated policy statement in Pediatrics recommending that parents consider their tiredness when feeding their baby to curb their risk of falling asleep in unsafe sleeping environments, such as a sofa or armchair. The statement also advises that infants sleep in their parents’ room until age 1 or at least age 6 months and that soft bedding is kept out of a baby’s crib or sleep area.
