The video serves as a crucial reminder for parents and caregivers to prioritise the safety of infants while they sleep.
“Please follow safe sleep ABC’s. This is too risky Mama.”
“Please practice safe sleep patterns, either ABC or safe sleep 7. Don’t risk it when it’s time she will sleep on her tummy but for now, play safe.”

“That's how I lost my son in 2021.”
“My baby learned to turn her head at 2 weeks.”
“My kids slept on their sides till a year old, I can’t risk.”
“I’m a new mom. And I was advised to remove blankets and toys - they don’t need pillows Mama.”

“That’s why paediatricians recommend laying them on their backs not belly.”
“My baby only slept comfortably on his stomach when I say I didn’t sleep for the first few weeks.”
“My baby likes to do this even when I'm carrying her, they don't forget to breathe as long as they can turn their heads.”
“My kids slept on their sides. This type of sleeping scared me.”

Baby dozes off while standing upright
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a TikTok user has posted a video of a baby who slept off in a rather awkward position. The video was posted by Lanivaka, who appears to be one of the girl's parents, and she says the baby sleeps anywhere.
In the TikTok video, which lasted only 7 seconds, the girl stood upright and went off into a very deep sleep. From the video, it looked like the girl was in a car as she was standing close to a couch.
When the video was posted on TikTok, it surprised everyone who wondered why the baby slept that way. Some TikTokers were amazed that even when the girl was touched, she did not wake up but continued to sleep.
