IN 1992 , THE AMERICAN Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published the recommendation that "healthy infants, when being put down for sleep, be positioned on their side or back (p.1120)," with the goal of reducing sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).1 This guideline was later amended to recommend only the "back-to-sleep" position, although side positioning is still considered safer than prone.2 Prior to this recommendation, the preferred position for sleeping infants in the U.S. was prone.
