About 3,500 infants die suddenly and unexpectedly each year in the US from SIDS. There are ways to help reduce the risk:
-Place babies on their backs to sleep.
-Use a firm sleep surface and an approved crib.
-Do not share a bed with your baby.
-Keep soft objects, loose bedding out of the baby’s sleep area
-Use a pacifier
-Keep room at 60-70 degrees
-Don’t smoke during pregnancy
