State Officials Urge Safe Sleep Habits For Babies

October 2, 2014

(Springfield, IL)  --  State officials say one of the leading causes of death in kids under the age of one is accidental sleep suffocation.  Nora Harms-Pavelski, with the DCFS, says it usually happens when the baby is in bed with someone else.  Officials say it can also be a problem when parents over bundle the baby or leave them sleeping in a car seat for extended periods of time.  It's also a good idea to keep stuffed animals, toys, bumper pads, and blankets out of your baby's crib.  And, try to make sure the baby's room isn't too hot.
