‘Cribs for Kids’: Safe sleep for infants

RENO — By creating a safe sleep environment for an infant, you can also lower the incidents of sleep — related deaths and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The greatest numbers of child deaths due to unsafe sleep situations occur among infants less than one year of age. The statewide Child Death Report states 93 percent of asphyxia deaths in 2010 were caused by unsafe sleeping environments due to excessive bedding, wedging, or adults or children sharing a bed with infants, which can result in rolling over or onto the baby and causing suffocation (overlay).

In Brief
