Don't Lie Down New Zealand researchers have studied sleep deaths during sleep, and found that if babies put their heads on soft pillows while sleeping, they may re-absorb their exhaled gas and thus not get enough oxygen. Most prone babies breathe with their heads raised three to six times a night, but 5 per cent are unaware of the increase in CO2 in the air. Raising the baby's head position does not reduce gastroesophageal reflux and is not recommended. Raising the baby's head may cause the baby to slide down, which in turn may hinder breathing. Premature infants should be more early supine to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome. Regardless of feeding and delivery, as long as the mother's condition is stable and sober, the baby should first contact with the mother's skin after birth, and continuous contact for an hour.
