How to Avoid SIDS
The risk of SIDS rises 13% when you place your baby on his or her stomach to sleep. That's because tummy sleepers may have more pauses in breathing, or may re-breathe the air they've just exhaled, resulting in deadly carbon dioxide levels. So always have your baby sleep on his or her back, and remind anyone who cares for your little one to make sure of this.
