A Fan May Lower the Risk of SIDS


When I brought my son home from the hospital, my biggest fear was SIDS. My husband and I would check on him every hour or so if we didn’t hear him peep. I knew that placing a baby on his back to sleep reduced the risk of SIDS, but a new study now shows that having a fan in a baby’s room can lower the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome by more than 70%.
