Sarah McMoyler, RN posted:
Expectant parents are terrified to discuss Sudden Infant Death Syndrome- because we don't know what causes it. What we do have are preventatives, which all new family households need to follow.

The National Institute of Health (NIH) recently presented the: "Safe to Sleep" Campaign, highlighting the preventative approach to SIDS. In addition to stressing the 'back to sleep' position for infants, Safe to Sleep, emphasizes the following:
-Not sleeping in an adult bed
-No blankets in the bed
-Do not overheat
-No exposure to tobacco

***Bonus: Breast milk has been shown to reduce SIDS by 60%!
