She is worried to sleep her baby on her back in case the baby vomites and chocks

Hi Betty, A teen girl that I know has just had a new baby and is worried to sleep her baby on her back in case the baby vomites and chocks. I was told that baby`s have less chance to chock if they sleep on there back. Can u enlighten me the facts because she has asked me and I said I would check it out. Got some info from sids. I worry about it because I lost my grandson to sids 2yrs ago.

Betty...
Answer: Hi - I am so sorry about your own child. That is very unfortunate and very sad. I hope you find some peace about what has happened and think about your childs lovely times on this Earth. Regarding your friends baby, she really needs to make her own decisions so that she is comfortable about it. There are many `facts` in this culture that dont exist in other cultures or at other times. I know this is difficult because we want the best for our baby. If she can speak to a supportive maternal and child health nurse, her GP or other mums that can be very useful, Betty
