Car seat fine: A semi- upright posture in the car seat can lead to airway problems in some frail infants or those with posterior tongue position(robin anomaly). For most, this position avoids the increased sids risk of prone sleeping and may be the best choice for some with a cleft.When the kid has improved mobility and or the kid has recovered from a cleft repair, crib based sleeping may be more realistic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Infant sleep: While placing babies on their backs for sleep has had a very beneficial effect on the incidence of sids, it doesn't work for every baby.
