Choosing a safe sleeper and nursery for baby are two weapons in parents' war against the possibility of SIDS. Please help spread the word to new moms and mothers-to-be that are designing baby's room and gathering items for baby's layette that there are safer alternatives than blankets for keeping a sleeping baby warm at night.

From what we know about SIDS right now it's safe to say that we must wage a prevention campaign against it using multiple methods rather than taking one, single action.

I’m no expert on infant crib death or its causes, I'm just another "scared to death" mom that has visited the nursery hundreds of times to be sure her baby is breathing alright just like you, but it seems to me, according to the information we have at hand, that having a loose fitting sleeper that allows air to circulate around the baby to avoid overheating and yet small enough to keep baby from slipping down into the garment is something that every mom should want.

Who knew that after centuries of worry over keeping our babies warm that overheating could be a factor in SIDS! The key is to keep them warm..but not too warm.
To maintain optimal body temperature, a nursery that has a ceiling fan to circulate the air and a thermometer to monitor the room's temperature are very good ideas.

Monitor the Baby's Nursery Temperature

Busy parents prefer a thermometer with an easy to read color-coded temperature display. The gentle glow of the light is just bright enough to function as a night light.

The monitor will help to guide for parents in choosing the weight of their baby's sleeper as well as choosing a setting for the thermostat at night.
