Why the best thing accompanying baby in the cot is… nothing! –

Some UK retailers have stopped selling baby sleep positioners amid concerns over their safety. A US health regulator said they “can cause suffocation that can lead to death” and have been linked to 12 infant deaths in the US. The positioners, aimed at infants under six months, are intended to keep a baby in a specific position while sleeping. Mothercare and Tesco have stopped selling sleep positioners but they are still available from other retailers.Ebay has also reportedly removed the product from its website after the US authority’s recommendation.
