aden and anais CJ Foundation for SIDS Giveaway -- ENDED



I think one of the hardest things for parents is losing their kids. My father in law lost his first child to SIDS and he was completely devastated by the event. When we had DD, my father in law's experience definitely made us more cautious with her. SIDS could be prevented by doing some really simple things.

Always lay your baby to sleep face up.
Side and tummy positions are not safe; check with your doctor if your baby has breathing problems.

Remove all loose bedding, stuffed animals, bumpers and pillows from crib.
Consider using a wearable blanket or other type of sleepsack instead of using a blanket.

Don't let your baby get too hot.
Overheating is a leading risk factor for SIDS. Dress your baby in as much or as little as you would wear. If your baby is sweating, has damp hair, or a heat rash, he or she may be too hot.

Control room temperature where baby is sleeping.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that room temperature should be comfortable for a lightly-clothed adult. This would be approximately 61-67 degrees Fahrenheit.

Consider using a fan to increase air circulation in baby's room.
Room fans have been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS.

Lay your baby to sleep in an approved crib, on a firm-fitting mattress.
Do not let the baby sleep on soft things, like a couch, pillow, sheepskin, foam pad, or waterbed. Crib bumpers are not recommended and can be hazardous.

Don't share sleep surfaces.
Parents should share a room with their infants, but should not sleep in the same bed or other sleep surface with their baby. Adult beds, couches, and chairs are not safe for infant sleep and increase the risk of SIDS, suffocation and accidental infant death. After feeding, put your baby back in his or her crib or bassinet.

Don't smoke while pregnant and never smoke near your infant.
While pregnant or considering pregnancy do not smoke. Never let others smoke near your baby. Smoking is a major risk factor for SIDS.

Create a healthy lifestyle for you and your baby.
When pregnant, see your doctor often and do not use drugs or alcohol. Talk with your doctor about changes in your baby and how your baby acts.

If possible, breastfeed your baby.
Breastfeeding has been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS.

Offer your baby a pacifier at all sleep times.
Pacifiers have been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS.

Put your baby on his or her tummy to play when your baby is awake and supervised.
Make sure someone is always watching. "Tummy Time" is good for your baby because it makes neck and shoulder muscles stronger.

In the spirit of educating parents and caregivers on safer sleeping practices, aden + anais, proud sponsors of the CJ Foundation for SIDS, would like to offer a giveaway of either their swaddling blankets or sleeping bags. One of my lucky readers will receive either a swaddling blanket or a sleeping bag of their choice (US residents only please).

A good friend of mine lost their baby to SIDS last spring... I held a fundraiser, raiding over $1000 for the SIDS foundation. Such a devestating thing...
