March 13, 2009, Newsletter Issue #120: SIDS Update

Tip of the Week

There's a fairly new study that has found using a fan in the baby's room can reduce the risk of SIDS. The study suggests that probably the air circulation by the fan disperses CO2 breathed by the baby and thus reduces the incidence of suffocation by inhaling it.
Of course, placing babies to sleep on their backs is still very important and a fan in the baby's room is not a substitute for this. But, by all means, turn the fan on during sleep times or invest in a small portable fan to place in the room. Anything that reduces SIDS is something to seriously consider!
