Baby Safety: Keeping Your Baby Safe From SIDS While SleepingBy Nicole van der Hulst
It's every new parent's worst fear and there is no clear-cut study on why it happens or what causes it. There are no symptoms or diagnosis, and the lack of answers is what makes this condition so scary.
It's called SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), or "crib death", and it lurks in the back of our minds every time our baby goes to sleep. It's the leading cause of infant deaths from 1 month to 1 year, taking the lives of 2,500 infants every year. The good news is, you don't have to feel completely helpless anymore. There are many preventative measures parents can take to greatly reduce the chance of SIDS.
The good news is that over the last 30 years, the number of SIDS incidents in the U.S. has dropped by 67%. Researchers say the biggest reason for this substantial drop is because new parents are being properly educated on proactive prenatal care and creating a safer sleep environment for their new baby. Preventative actions are the very best way to protect your baby from SIDS, which is why Simply Baby Furniture would like to share with you this informative resource about SIDS prevention. This is for you to keep and share with every new parent you know and with your baby's caregivers. You can even put it on your site.
