<P>How to reduce the risk of sudden unexpected infant death Sleeping on the back reduces the risk of SUDI. The chance of babies dying suddenly and unexpectedly is greater if they sleep on their tummies or sides. Put your baby on the back to sleep, from birth, on a firm, flat surface. If your midwife, nurse or doctor advises you to use another sleep position for your baby, eg. baby has a particular medical condition, make sure the reason is fully explained to you and ask your doctor for a written explanation. These situations are very rare. Healthy babies placed to sleep on the back are less likely to choke on vomit than tummy sleeping infants. If you are unsure about the best way to sleep your baby, speak with your midwife, nurse or doctor. In the supine position the upper respiratory airways are above the oesophagus (digestive tract), therefore regurgitated milk can be easily swallowed and aspiration into the respiratory tract avoided. When baby is placed on their tummy the digestive tract sits above the babys upper airways. If baby regurgitates or vomits milk or fluid, these substances are more likely to be inhaled into the babys airway and lungs. 1 Sleep baby on the back from birth, not on the tummy or side</p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/2/2/">Inside-Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/3/3/">Page-3</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/4/4/">Page-4</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/5/5/">Page-5</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/6/6/">Page-6</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/7/7/">Page-7</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/8/8/">Page-8</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/9/9/">Page-9</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/10/10/">Page-10</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/11/11/">Page-11</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/12/12/">Page-12</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/13/13/">Page-13</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/14/14/">Page-14</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/15/15/">Page-15</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/16/16/">Back-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publications/1616/x/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">site map</a></LI> </UL>
