Preventing SIDS (Cot Death) November 17, 2008 3:31 PM

Scientists still don’t know the exact cause of sudden infant death syndrome - SIDS - but research has shown that babies should be placed on their backs to sleep. Although parents may be vigilant about this practice at home, over half of daycare centers are not, so make sure that your daycare center has a written sleep safety policy.
Experts also say that running a fan in the baby’s room can decrease the risk of SIDS by over 70 percent. 
Tips for preventing SIDS:
Put baby to sleep on back
Don’t smoke
Use a firm mattress
Use a crib or bassinet
Keep your baby close by
Offer a pacifier
Moderate room temperature

Please spread this news to any mothers you know.
