As a mom, I know one thing all of us can relate to one another on is always wanting to do what is safest for our babies. Sometimes when it comes to safety, views will differ on different topic and that’s okay.. everyone parents in whatever way fits for them and their lifestyle, but one thing is certain.. we all want what is best for our precious bundles.

Every year, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA,) sponsors National Baby Safety Month in September. The month-long event is meant to increase consumer awareness on baby safety issues.

40 Years in the Making

MAM prides itself in putting the development of products for the well-being and safety of babies first. The top ranked safety risk on every parent’s list of worries is safe sleep. Together, we can help raise awareness of the dangers of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) as the leading cause of death in infants between 1 month and 1 year of age. As a mom, these statistics are scary.

Yearly, about 4,000 infants die unexpectedly during sleep time, from SIDS, accidental suffocation, or unknown causes.  By providing infants with a safe sleep environment it is possible to help reduce the risk of SIDS.

What Can We Do?

This is why some of the following are tips given by experts and healthcare providers to drastically decrease your babies risk of SIDS.

  • Put baby to sleep on their back
  • Consider pacifier usage when putting baby to sleep. Pacifier use has been proven to decrease the risk of SIDS. Always inspect your pacifier before inserting in your baby’s mouth for any damage. MAM supports  the published guidelines by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which can be found HERE. It’s also important to replace pacifiers frequently, every 1-2 months.
  • Avoid letting your baby get too hot. Dressing in fibers like cotton, bamboo, and merino can help ensure baby’s temperature is regulated. ergoPouch swaddles are a great solution, and can help reduce the risk of SIDS.
  • Lastly, be sure your crib is up to current safety standards, you’re using a firm mattress with fitted sheet, and there are no objects inside the crib with your baby.

    I was aware of SIDS but not aware of those horrifying stats. I also didn’t know using a pacifier can reduce risk. We have our grandkids sleep on their back.

    We are expecting in March. I had no idea what the statistics were until reading your post. Very sad!

    My baby sleeps in his bassinet every night. I lay him on his back and I also give him a pacifier as well.

    Always make sure that the crib is free of everything but a fitted sheet! And the numbers are always shocking!

    These are too cute! If I had little ones I’d be all over them, I’d definitely be grabbing some, but I’ll be sure to point them out to friends having newbies. 🙂 When we had our little ones we made sure our mattress fit our crib so our guys couldn’t get stuck between. We also made sure there weren’t tons of extra blankets and stuffed animals. 🙂

    We got a sleep sack at the hospital but my new guy loves it so much that I’ll be grabbing more. Thanks for introducing me to this brand!

    SIDS is very scary! I haven’t had my baby yet but I think education on sids is very important to prevent it!
