I didn’t know what SIDS was until it came across on a website. It stands for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Sadly, it’s number one cause of death on infants one month to one year of age. Researches have no idea what this happens but there are a few precautions you can take to avoid it. The first thing is placing your baby on his/her back to sleep. This position works best to reduce SIDS probability. Also, avoid placing your baby to sleep on a pillow or quilt. Firm surfaces work best as your child has less chance of getting chocked. Don’t clutter your baby’s bed with toys and things. Keep it all away from your baby’s face. Dress your baby with light clothes, and adjust your room temperature. There are some thermometers out there to measure your room temperature. There is no ideal room temperature. I’ll say about 70-74 degrees. Some people like the 60’s but I think that’s kind of chilly. It’s up to you to decide.
