Re: any precautions you can take? special clothes or mattresses?
The latest thing I have learned about preventing SIDS is to have a fan running in the babys room but not directly blowing on the baby!! Studies have concluded that the circulating air can drastically reduce the number of SIDS deaths each year! What a simple thing to do!
Dont fear SIDS. Just assume that your baby will be just fine. Common sense goes a long way towards raising a healthy baby. Just enjoy your new baby! Congratulations to you, in advance!
