  1. Infant sleep position in licensed child care centers.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To determine 1) familiarity of child care centers with American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations regarding infant sleep position, 2) predominant infant sleep positions in child care settings, and 3) child care policies pertaining to sleep position for infants less than 6 months of age.

    Design

    A descriptive, cross-sectional telephone survey including the age and number of infants cared for, infant sleep positions currently in use, and details regarding reasons for sleep position policies.

    Participants

    All licensed child care centers caring for infants less than 6 months of age in Washington, DC, and Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties in Maryland.

    Results

    Out of 137 centers in these areas that accept infants less than 6 months of age, 131 completed the survey.

    Only 57% (75) of the centers were aware of recommendations regarding infant sleep position.

    Infants were placed prone in 49% (64) of the centers and 20% (26) of the centers positioned infants exclusively in the prone position.

    Of the centers, 75% (98) did not have a written policy regarding sleep position.

    Most common reasons for placing infants in the prone position included child comfort, fear of choking, and guidance by the parents of the infants.

    Centers that used the prone position exclusively cared for significantly fewer infants on average than centers that never or only sometimes placed infants prone.

    Conclusions
