“My son has medical concerns so he has to sleep in a swing.”
Unless you have been given a note signed by a medical professional, and an exception from the Office of Child Care, all infants should be placed flat on their backs for sleeping. The Licensing Specialist that licenses your program will need to be contacted before any alternate sleep accommodations could be used.
“When my daughter is put to sleep on her back she wakes up scared so I need you to put her to sleep on her stomach.”
The startle response is a sudden movement that is sometimes seen as scary for the baby. Sometimes the baby gasps. This protects the baby, letting them get a breath of air or to wake up slightly from too deep of a sleep.
