    Despite warnings, information, and publicized campaigns, a new study has found that many parents are still putting their babies to sleep in ways that can raise their risk of SIDS. And there are certainly some mixed messages out there on what you need in a crib and what will protect your baby in his/her sleep.

    Make sure that you are aware of all of the "sleep safe" measures that you can take to lower the risk of SIDS, such as removing pillows, bumpers, loose bedding etc from cribs, and placing your baby on his/her back not side or stomach to sleep.

    You can read more about what researchers found here.

    This slideshow has some great tips on safe sleep for babies. It could help to click through and make sure that you are checking off all of the safe sleep boxes on the list.

    What measures do you take to keep your baby's sleep area safe? Have you had discussions with your child's pediatrician on this topic?
