After Three Babies Die, Coroner Issues Warning About Popular Baby Product

The Boppy® Pillow has been on many baby registries as a coveted item that makes breastfeeding so much easier. According to Independent Journal Review, the crescent-shaped pillow gets wrapped around a mother’s waist while the baby lays on the pillow giving mom a place to rest her arm.

However, some parents are using the pillow to prop up their baby while they sleep. The practice has reportedly lead to the death of three infants. The warning label, however, clearly states that parents should never let their babies sleep on them.

Letting your baby sleep in the Boppy Pillow can lead to them sliding down, causing their neck to bend and blocking the child’s air passage, which can lead to suffocation. If you have one of these pillow, here’s how to use it properly:

- Place your baby on it’s back and on a firm mattress that fits your approved crib when they sleep

- Remove all soft bedding, toys and pillows from the baby’s sleep area, including the Boppy® Pillow

- Use wearable blankets to keep your baby warm

- Give your baby tummy time to strengthen its arms, neck and shoulder muscles.

- When using the Boppy® Pillow make sure your baby sits in an upright position and keep a close eye on your child
