how can we prevent sudden infant death syndrome? i hear different things about it and what i really just want to know is how i can prevent it from happening? what are the necessary precautions?

what you just really need to do is make sure that your baby can breath properly. allow proper ventilation in the room, position the child on hia or her back and so on. just be sure her position or whatever would suffocate her in any way...

I agree with the above. As long as there is ventilation you dont have to fear SIDS.

there are some guidelines on how to baby proof your home, look it up online. more details are found in books.

Aside from the ventilation you also need to monitor your child for the first three months especially when asleep. SIDS usually happen during the first few months of life. Make sure he is breathing from time to time.

I read that babies exposed to second hand smoke are more at risk for SIDS. Also babies who are breastfed. Studies also suggest that putting a fan inside the nursery reduce the risk.
