A Healthy Baby Month Reminder to Parents

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, all soft bedding, including pillows, soft or pillow-like bumpers, positioners, stuffed toys and sheepskins can put your baby at higher risk for SIDS.  The majority of SIDS, suffocation and accidental infant deaths are occurring in unsafe sleep conditions, which include cribs with pillows and/or other soft bedding items, toys, sofas, and adult beds. 

Eliminating as many of these dangers as possible will provide the greatest protection against SIDS and accidental infant death. The numbers of babies that die while sleeping on their back in a “safe” crib (i.e. firm, snug fitting mattress covered only with a sheet and everything else removed from the crib) are very low. 

Thank you for giving our babies a safe place to sleep.
