OVERVIEW OF SIDS GUIDELINES FOR BED-SHARING FAMILIES

OVERVIEW OF SIDS GUIDELINES FOR BED-SHARING FAMILIES

You have survived the 9 months of pregnancy and delivered a healthy baby. You will now spend the rest of your life protecting your new baby. I know this is a scary subject but the more you know about preventing SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) the better your chances of avoiding the tragedy. There is a danger of SIDS for all babies but the most common age of children affected by this phenomenon is 2 to 4 months old.

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is a mystery by definition. In recent years SIDS deaths have been reduced since the medical community began educating parents about baby sleeping safety.

A lot of families choose to bed share with their baby. This is not the safest form of sleeping but each family has the right to make the decision for themselves as to their sleeping environment. If you do choose to bed share with your little one then there are guidelines that should be followed to make the sleep environment as safe as possible.

  • Never allow smoking in the room where your baby will be sleeping. Smoking is said to increase the likelihood of SIDS.
  • Ensure the surface being slept on is firm.
  • Do not wrap/swaddle your baby.
  • Place the baby on one side of the parent – not in the middle of the parents.
  • Place baby to sleep on their back.
  • Use lightweight blankets.
  • Avoid pushing the bed up against the wall as there have been cases where a baby has become trapped between the mattress and the wall.

SIDS is a scary phenomenon and can be a cause of a lot of anxiousness in parents. Whilst we cannot get rid of the risk completely, there are things that can be done to minimize the risk. Sleep Consulting by Sleepy Starz offers a range of affordable sleep consultation packages. We offer supportive and non-judgmental advice to parents and families.
