View Full Version : Sleeping in a boppy

The only way my three month old daughter will sleep at night is in her boppy? Is this safe?

I don't see the problem but the label do states that you shouldn't let them sleep there. When my baby didn't move much, I used to put him on the bed next to me in his boppy. That way I felt much more secure and slept like a baby during his naps.
Hope this helps,

The reason they don't suggest it is because the Boppy isn't very firm and could potentially lead to SIDs if she turned her head or turned over in her sleep on to her tummy. So I guess it's all a matter of what you feel most comfortable with. If she doesn't move around much in her sleep, then the risks go down. My son pretty much moves the span of the entire crib, I could never let him sleep on his Boppy, he's a little mover :p He also like to bury his face into things (he's a strange kid with strange parents :p )
What is the reason she will only sleep in the Boppy? Is it that she's more comfortable sleeping at an incline? Babies are prone to reflux, sometimes just elevating the mattress in their crib helps because it keeps the acid from coming up the esophagus. Or in cases of congestion, it helps drain the snot out off their little noses and doesn't catch in their throat. Or is it a matter of she doesn't like the room her bed is in?

I never thought about that. It make lots of sense.
Bec caV, Thanks for the info.
