LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:

For over a decade, inclined sleepers or bassinets were a must-have for exhausted parents to put their babies in. One of the most popular was Fisher-Price''n Play. But last spring, Consumer Reports revealed how unsafe these types of portable sleepers were - that at least 73 infants had died, and more than a thousand babies had been injured. A government recall soon followed.

At the time, we spoke with baby sleep consultant Alexis Dubief, who wrote the book "" and runs the Facebook group of the same name. She''s now revised her recommendations, and she joins us now to talk about them.

ALEXIS for 1 last update 2020/07/08 DUBIEF: Thank you.ALEXIS DUBIEF: Thank you.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: You are a big guru for baby sleep. You have a huge following. And you used to be an advocate for using swings and other products that prop babies up. How did you feel when you realized this may have been dangerous advice?

DUBIEF: It was horrifying. It is a huge challenge. And that - what we look at when we look at swings is really, like, the first few months, when things are...

GARCIA-NAVARRO: Terrible.

DUBIEF: ...Catastrophically bad for most parents, right?

GARCIA-NAVARRO: Terrible - let''s really bad. And the challenge we have is, how do we survive this? - because what happens is parents know that the gold standard for safety is the crib - an empty crib with an infant on their back. This is where all of our babies should be. This is the safest.

What are those recommendations?GARCIA-NAVARRO: Your latest post is titled "" And from the start, you say this story is bigger than just the recall. It''re now recommending how parents should help their babies learn to sleep independently without being rocked or bounced. What are those recommendations?

DUBIEF: So newborns are born without a well-developed circadian rhythm. And the circadian rhythm is why we sleep at night and are awake during the day. So without that, newborns basically nap 24 hours a day. So it is normal for a newborn to wake up every two hours all day long and all night long. And that, unfortunately, is a developmental milestone. And we need to have survival plans.

And I advocate for sleeping in shifts to - how do we get through this period where the circadian rhythm is basically coming online? And once that has happened, which for most babies is around two months, they are absolutely capable of independent sleep. And the reality is we have convinced ourselves that they''re so little itty-bitty. And, you know, of course they can''s investigation says that the Consumer Product Safety Commission knew babies died in these products and still didn''re safe?

DUBIEF: Honestly, they can''t want your infant in any device where you have to worry that they might stop breathing - right? - even if you''ve learned from this whole process is that the way that we learn if baby products are safe or not is, we introduce a new product, and we wait and see what happens, which is basically live human testing. It is enormously concerning. Cribs have been around for hundreds of years. We''s my advice. Stick with the crib, stick with a motionless bassinet and wait and see.
