'Baby boxes' May Help Prevent SIDS


Child care experts say it's dangerous for infants to sleep in the same bed with their parents. Now, researchers report that "baby boxes" and parent education can help reduce the unsafe practice. Bed-sharing is linked with sleep-related deaths in babies, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and accidental suffocation and strangulation. The combination of baby box and face-to-face instructions reduced the rate of bed-sharing by 25 percent during infants' first eight days of life, the study found. For exclusively breast-fed infants -- who are at increased risk of bed-sharing -- there was a 50 percent reduction in bed-sharing, the researchers said.

  • To Prevent SIDS, Keep Baby On Back, Out Of Parents' Bed

    According to the American Academy of Pediatrics' Infants should sleep on their back and in the same room as their parents. The organization's safety precautions have been updated to protect against sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS. The paper recommends new parents have their infants sleep in the same room as they do for at least six months, though on a separate surface such as a crib or basket, and never on a couch, armchair or any other soft surface. AAP officials say the recommendations sharply reduce the risk of SIDS. SIDS is the leading cause of death for infants between 1 month and 1 year old. It kills approximately 3,500 infants in the U.S. every year.

  • Baby Aspirin Prescribed To Prevent Stroke, Heart Disease Has A Serious Downside

    Doctors often recommend patients take low-dose aspirin to prevent heart disease and stroke. However, a new report reveals that the practice is associated with an increased risk of bleeding in the skull in people without a history of those conditions. According to CNN, researchers analyzed data from 13 previous studies in which over 130,000 people ages 42 to 74, who didn't have a history of heart disease or stroke, were given either aspirin or a placebo for the prevention of these conditions. People who took the placebo had a 0.46% risk of having a head bleed during the combined trial periods. But for those who took low-dose aspirin, the risk was 0.63%, the equivalent of an additional 2 out of every 1,000 people developing a bleed. People from Asian backgrounds and those with a body mass index under 25 had the highest risk.
