Kolcraft Launches Series of Safe Sleeping Tips for Infants in Children
Aberdeen, North Carolina November 10, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Aberdeen, NC - Kolcraft, a leading provider of high quality baby products, has released a series of safety tips designed to help parents create a safe, comfortable sleeping environment for their children. The series was launched in recognition of SIDS Awareness Month in October, and to stress the importance of a safe, healthy sleep environment in a child's overall wellbeing. The series includes tips about choosing a mattress, best sleep positions for baby sleeping position guidance, and other tips about what parents should and should not put inside their child's crib.
"For many parents, there are a lot of questions about SIDS, such as what causes it and how to prevent it," explains Andrea Ostapa, Crib Mattress Senior Marketing Manager "We advocate strongly for safe sleeping, and have posted a series of tips to help parents understand some of the steps they can take to create a safe, clean and healthy environment for their child."
According to the CDC, there are about 4,200 sudden unexpected infant deaths (SUIDs) in the US each year, and half are attributed to SIDS. While health care providers and researchers don't yet know the exact causes of SIDS, certain steps, such as placing a baby on his or her back to sleep, have been found to reduce the risk of SIDS and other SUIDs.
