Not buckling your baby properly into the auto seat can also result in injury and death.

According to the AAP, "while auto seats are a safe and effective way of transporting an infant and should always be used when transporting an infant in a vehicle, they should not be used as an alternative to a crib or bassinet".

The study examined more than 11,000 infant sleep-related deaths over the past 10 years in the United States and found that 3 percent died in "sitting devices", such as auto seats, strollers, bouncers, swings and other infant seats.

The study, "Infant Deaths in Sitting Devices", in the July 2019 issue of Pediatrics was published online Monday. Nearly two-thirds of those in auto seats, about one-third in bouncers and swings, and 2 percent in strollers.

"The main take home message is not the combination of risk factors as much as it is using auto seats as replacements for cribs or bassinets", said study co-author Jeffrey D. Colvin to the AAP internal newsletter.

The study reportedly states that parents may inappropriately rely on the sitting devices as an alternative to a crib or a bassinet. According to the study, about 90 percent of the time an infant death occurred in a vehicle seat, the seat wasn't being used properly.

The study detailed that the majority of deaths in sitting devices happened at home under the supervision of a parent, but that there were "higher odds of a sleep related death in a sitting device when there was a child care provider of babysitter is the primary supervisor". He warns that not only can a vehicle seat flip over or fall from whatever surface it was set on if the parent isn't watching but that the straps can also cause strangulation or suffocation.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that when sleeping, babies should always be placed in a supine position on their back until they're at least one year old.

Some of the infants who died in the Rock 'n Play Sleepers rolled over while unrestrained, while others were unable to breathe due to their position, the AAP stated.
