Safe sleeping for baby

Posted:

Moms are getting mixed messages when it comes to safe sleeping environments for their babies.

To reduce the risk of SIDS, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends babies be put on their backs to sleep, in their own beds, without any type of soft bedding, blankets or stuffed animals.

But open many parenting magazines these days -- and you'll find glossy pictures of sleeping babies cuddling with stuffed animals or a blankie.

Many of those have been deemed unsafe by researchers at the children's national medical center.
