Many Crib Deaths are Preventable-Here’s How (Archived Pedcast)

 

I don’t know how I let this one slip by me but apparently I missed the fact that experts at the AAP put out new updated Safe Sleep Guidelines in 2016 based on the latest studies. These guidelines provide parents and pediatricians with practical dos and don’ts with regards to preventing the most common cause of death in children under a year of age, SIDS and SUIDS, previously known as Crib Death. In my mind, nothing could be more important when it comes to child health than doing everything we possibly can to prevent an infant death and the devastation that those events impose on their families. I’ve done posts on this topic before and… it looks its time for an update.  So if you are a parent, a grandparent, a daycare worker, a babysitter, a healthcare worker, or anyone who is involved in caring for babies under a year of age, listen carefully while I highlight what is new in the evolving science of “Safe Sleep for Babies”.
