The Grief of My First Miscarriage

The Grief of My First Miscarriage

September is Safe Sleep Awareness Month

September is Safe Sleep Awareness Month

More than 3,500 babies in the U.S. die suddenly and unexpectedly every year while sleeping, often due to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) or accidental deaths from suffocation or strangulation. It is recommended to follow these four safe sleeping practices for infants: 1. Place the baby on his or her back on a firm sleep surface such as a crib or bassinet with a tight-fitting sheet. 2. Avoid use of soft bedding, including crib bumpers, blankets, pillows and soft toys. The crib should be bare. 3. Share a bedroom with parents, but not the same sleeping surface, preferably until the baby turns 1 but at least for the first six months. Room-sharing decreases the risk of SIDS by as much as 50 percent. 4. Avoid baby’s exposure to smoke, alcohol, and illicit drugs.
