Crib wedge - How do you keep baby from sliding down/ sideways?

Heather - posted on 04/25/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




My 4-month old has been severely congested and spitting up mucus since starting daycare. The Pediatrician recommended elevating the head of his mattress with a wedge or pillow. Every time I have done this, he slides down off of the elevated area or I find him turned sideways in his crib at the base of the wedge. Any suggestions on how to keep him in place are greatly appreciated!!!

When my daughter had a sinus infection I put a small amount of vicks on her shoulders and the baby vicks on her chest. Then I boiled water poured it into a cup chopped up a fresh onion and let it sit in the cup until it cooled. Then I strained the onion out and added this to her formula. The onion is a natural antibiotic and opens the sinus and lung of flem. I bought the vicks vapourizer and with all that my daughter cleared up within 2 days. I put a thin pillow on one side of her crib then a smaller one under that so her head was elevated then I put a blanket over the pillows so they wouldn't shift I then wrapped her up so she couldn't wiggle around. For the sides of her I rolled our thickest and biggest towels so she stayed central. Good luck this worked for me.

No. Don't do anything to hold your son in place. Instead, put something under the mattress instead for SLIGHT elevation. Not so much that he will slide down though.
