Never Sleep On The Same Bed As Babies, It Can Kill Them - Nigeria Doctor Advises

Never Sleep On The Same Bed As Babies, It Can Kill Them - Nigeria Doctor Advises
According to a Nigerian born medical doctor and social media influencer, Olufunmilayo, it is very wrong to sleep on the same bed as your babies.
It could lead to death, he advised. While sleeping together, you are exposing the baby to a lot of  risks including head injuries, falls as well as sudden infant death.

Quoting his tweets,
As a new mom/dad:
NEVER sleep in same bed as baby.
NEVER lie the baby on its chest.
NEVER smoke around baby.
NEVER over-wrap the baby.
These causes SUDDEN DEATH in babies and children under one year.
Please don’t blame your mother in law. Or village people.
RT to save a baby!
Well, it's good he added it. In this part of the world we are so fond of blaming our 'village people' for mishaps in our lives.
To avoid these stories that touch, lay your baby in their own cot or a safe Moses basket. Also make sure they are facing up, while lying on their backs.
Sleeping on the chest can cause difficulties with breathing as the nose presses against the bed, and spending a whole night in the position could be fatal to the fragile baby.
