The study， conducted by University of California sociologist， David Phillips， reviewed 129，090 SIDS cases that occurred between 1973 to 2006.vintage cushion covers
The findings showed that SIDS deaths increased at times also known for increased alcohol consumption. For examplecustom christmas gifts， SIDS deaths spiked by 33% on New Year’s Day. Researchers also discovered that SIDS deaths were higher on weekends and on the fourth of July.
This lines up with other statistics on SIDS： Babies of mothers who drink are more than twice as likely to die of SIDS.
One doctor commenting on the study said， “”；Although the study alerts us to considering the increase in SIDS at this time of the year (meaning New Year’s)， it concerns me because it does not have evidence to suggest a cause or action to prevent this increase.”；
Actually， the ‘action to prevent this increase’ is pretty clear. Don’t drink alcohol AND take care of babies. Pretty simple.
Many other factors are suspected of contributing to SIDS：
–； Babies suffocating in extra quilts， blankets， pillows， very soft mattresses， or by sleeping on their stomach. Recommendations are to put the baby to sleep in his or her back with no extra or heavy blankets， toys， etc.， and ensure they can’t roll over.
–； Babies overheating if they’re over-dressed or in a room where the temperature is too high. We have a tendency to bundle babies a little too much and have their bedrooms very warm. Most doctors recommend that if you are too hot or too cold in a room， your baby probably is， too. Don’t use extra blankets or clothing； if the temperature’s good for you (unless you are particularly sensitive)， then it’s probably fine for baby.
–； Some experts think breathing fumes coming from the chemicals in baby crib mattresses. Naturepedic crib mattresses have been independently tested to ensure the air around them is safe for baby.
And others are still being researched.
If parents took care of all of the known or suspected risk factors， would SIDS be over？ No one really knows. But we do know that we can lower our baby’s chances of SIDS by addressing the things in the above list. And now， thanks to this new study， we know that drinking alcohol and caring for babies do not mix. Abstinence may be the best policy for parents and caregivers of young children.
I created a busy book as a gift for a special little girl I know. I figured it would only take a few days. Boy was I wrong! It took me about a month to complete. I'm sure I could have done it faster if I didn't have all the daily mom duties that having little children create.
