Sleepy puppy tries to guard sleeping baby

Aren’t you not supposed to let babies sleep on their stomachs? SIDS or crib death or something?

I’m by no means an expert in pediatrics, but I would expect that an actively monitored baby is pretty safe no matter what position it’s sleeping in. You can see if it stops breathing.

According to the wiki the biggest risk factors are sleeping on the stomach/side and co-sleeping. It usually happens between midnight and 9am. Further risk factors are overheating and exposure to second-hand smoke.

Probably sleeping during the day with awake and alert caretakers and an active supervisor would eliminate most if not all of the risk associated with stomach sleeping.

The puppy, right?
