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.

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.
