SIDS Research/ aden + anais giveaway


On February 2nd, the CJ Foundation for SIDS released a major study linking SIDS with low production of serotonin in the brain. This may lead to a concrete approach to identifying babies at risk for SIDS, the leading cause of death for infants between 1 and 12 months old in the US. The study is published in the February 3rd issues of The Journal of the American Medical Association and was funded in part by a grant from the CJ Foundation for SIDS.


aden + anais is a proud sponsor of the CJ Foundation for SIDS. They have created their new cozy sleeping bag to keep babies warm in the winter months without overheating (a risk factor for SIDS). The cozy sleeping bag is made of four layers of breathable muslin cotton and of course comes in adorable prints. In these winter months its important for parents to be cautious about overheating their little ones. Cranking the heat or overdressing a baby can be dangerous. Some other reminders include:

1- Always lay your baby to sleep face up.
2- Don't smoke when pregnant and never smoke near your infant.
3- Don't let your baby get too hot. (A wearable sleep blanket is great for this.)
4- Lay your baby to sleep in an approved crib, on a firm mattress.
5- Create a healthy lifestyle for you and your baby.
6- If possible, breastfeed your baby. (Reduces the risk of SIDS!)
7- Offer your baby a pacifier at all sleep times.
8- Put your baby on his or her tummy to play when your baby is awake and supervised.
9- Don't share sleep surfaces.
10- Share these tips with everyone who cares for your baby.

(Note: I personally cosleep with my babies and believe this can be done safely. Please use your best judgement when deciding where your baby should sleep.)
