Since 1992, the optimal sleeping position for infants in the United States has been supine. This position has been shown to greatly reduce the rate of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (Skadberg, Morild, & Markestad, 1998). However, the supine position may lead to other unintended consequences or complications. Through a review of literature, this article explores some of the complications associated with the "Back to Sleep" campaign in the U.S. and discusses educational strategies for perinatal educators.
