New Paperback Explains SIDS and Sleep-Related Infant Deaths
Is there anything more heartbreaking than the death of an infant?
In "14 Ways to Protect Your Baby from SIDS: Safe Sleep Advice from the Experts" (Parenting Press, Seattle, parentingpress.com), now available in paperback, doctors Rachel Y. Moon and Fern R. Hauck explain Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and other sleep-related deaths, and which infants are at greatest risk.
The pair, whose research on SIDS is extensively published, also dispel common myths about "crib death," and they cite the most recent research on SIDS.
Also available as a downloadable, "14 Ways to Protect Your Baby from SIDS" lists what you need in your nursery, and what popular crib accessories create risks. There's also a detailed "Checklist for a Safe Baby Sleep Environment."
Available at Amazon.com and ParentingPress.com, the paperback is $9.95.
