Baby Sleeping Products Increase Risk of SIDS

Baby sleeping products are found to be putting babies at the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), according to a report published on March 13, 2018.

Items such as cushioned sleeping pods, nests, cot bumpers, pillows, duvets and anything that wedges a baby in place are not safe for babies and increases the risk of SIDS in babies. Infants below the age of 12 months are found to be at a higher risk. These products can cause overheating or obstruction to baby’s airway if they roll or their face becomes covered by loose bedding. Although there are disadvantages for these products, it becomes difficult for the parents to differentiate between the good and bad ones.

There are evidences that suggest an increase in the risk of SIDS if a baby is lying on a baby sleep nest or pod. A survey conducted by the Lullaby Trust showed that 41 percent of new parents were still planning to buy a baby sleep nest or pod.
Francine Bates, chief executive of The Lullaby Trust said, “As a SIDS charity, we have watched with concern as products that go against safer sleep advice gain popularity. It is hard for parents when they are trying to choose from the overwhelming number of baby products on offer and many people make the reasonable assumption that if an item is sold on the high street or made by a recognized brand it is safe for their baby.”
Professor Viv Bennett, director of nursing at PHE said that their main aim was to ensure that parents have the right knowledge required to keep their baby safe from all diseases. This study can be associated to baby care products market, as elaborated in the baby care products market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
