tudy Finds Alarming Number Of Babies Sleeping In Unsafe Environments
A new report suggests parents in the U.S. are ill-informed when it comes to safe sleeping practices for babies.
Today, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published a study that found an alarming number of babies sleep in unsafe environments, which pose a heightened risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
According to the report, researchers filmed infants at home for one night at the ages of 1 month, 3 months and 6 months old. They then analyzed the video footage based on the AAP guidelines for sleep safety.
