No. In 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a warning to parents to stop using sleep positioners. They cited reports of 12 babies who died when they suffocated in a sleep positioner or between a sleep positioner and the side of a crib or bassinet.

There were also dozens of reports of babies who were placed on their back or side in a sleep positioner but found later in a potentially hazardous position in or next to the positioner. The incidents took place over 13 years and involved two types of positioners: flat mats with side bolsters and inclined (wedge) mats with side bolsters. Unfortunately, those positioners and many other types are still sold.

None of these positioners is considered safe. For example, sleep positioners that are supposed to keep babies on their back might seem like an effective way to help prevent SIDS or suffocation, but instead they themselves create a hazard.

The safest sleep environment for a baby is a firm, flat mattress with nothing but a fitted sheet on it. Nothing else should be in the bed: no stuffed animals, blankets, pillows, bumpers, or positioners of any kind.
