As scary as it is, sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS, takes the lives of about 3,500 babies every year in the U.S. And while guidelines surface every so often instructing parents on how they can prevent SIDS, a NEW study provides easier-than-ever ways to ‘sharply’ decrease a child’s risk. Find out what to do for your little one here.
SIDS, or sudden infant death syndrome, is the super scary, unexplained death of a child less than one year of age. And while certain practices have long been linked to increasing the risk of SIDS, a NEW study suggests that swaddling may now need to be added to that list!
This is so awful! SIDS can now be linked to swaddling a baby, according to a new study!

This is SO scary! Sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS, can be linked to swaddling a baby, according to a new study. And while the technique has become immensely popular as a way to keep an infant comfortable, this recent news comes as a HUGE shock — and concern — for parents!
Swaddling a baby — a traditional way of wrapping an infant in a cloth or light blanket, with only the head sticking out — is believed to create a calmer child who sleeps better.

It’s a heartbreaking condition that claims the lives of thousands of babies each year and has left doctors baffled for decades. Until now!
