  • This is just superb, I’ve been looking for “putting baby to sleep” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Qeysaiah Baby Bangka (search on google )? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my work buddy got amazing success with it.

  • funny because my son is 3 months and he choked on his back in his sleep last night……. it was scary he like couldnt breath for a second….

  • i was in the hospital with my daughter. my mother noticed the newborn baby in the crib next to us. she said go see why the baby was making jerking movements. Omg the baby was throwing up and swallowing the vomit and could not breath. IF my mother did not see that the baby would have died. i rolled the baby over and the baby started breathing. I was so scared my heart was racing, i told the nurses what happened and they ignored me. i was so upset. when i went home i cryed when i came back the baby was put into a carage and parked next to the nurses. i was afraid they did not care. i told everyone i knew about that and warned them never leave a baby on their back.

  • Did you ever thought of using a wedge baby pillow to elevate the baby’s head?

    Try Karmil pillow for $25 on amazon.
    Made out of organic cotton with waterproof layer.
    It keeps the food or the acid at the stomach and open the airways for better breathing.
