The American Academy Of Pediatrics Says Room-Sharing Can Prevent SIDS By Up To 50%

Every year, roughly 3,500 babies die in the United States due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Thankfully those stats have been steadily falling since the 90s.

In an effort to get those numbers even lower, the American Academy of Pediatrics has updated their guidelines for SIDS.

In addition to avoiding soft bedding, toys, and crib bumpers in the sleeping area, the AAP says your infant should sleep in your bedroom next to you. Room-sharing can reduce SIDS by up to fifty percent.
