SIDS Prevention

What is SIDS?

SIDS is an acronym for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, also known as crib death or cot death. SIDS is not an illness or disease; it is the diagnosis given when an apparently healthy baby less than one year old, dies without warning.

Which babies are most at risk?

All babies under one year of age are at risk from SIDS. Doctors still have no way to pinpoint those with the most susceptible defects or abnormalities. Some children, however, have a risk of SIDS higher than the general population. SIDS is most common in infants between one and four months of age. SIDS strikes most often, but not always during periods of extended sleep. The risk is greater in boys, premature babies and those of low birth weight.

How can I reduce my baby's risk of SIDS?

Your doctor can suggest a number of things (see below) to decrease your baby’s risk, but at present there is no guaranteed way to prevent SIDS. However, state of the art techniques now allow for the precise monitoring of a baby’s vital functions during sleep.  The Nanny Monitor is an affordable device suitable for such monitoring not just in the maternity ward, but at home as well.

Why you need the Nanny Monitor?

It is suitable for all babies. Sudden infant death syndrome may unexpectedly affect even entirely healthy and full-term babies. It is an absolute must for babies with a low birth weight and prematurely born babies. Nanny will allow you to sleep calmly and with the confidence that your baby is breathing all right.

What does the Nanny Monitor warn you about?

It warns you about the risk of a breathing arrest. Children under one year have irregular breathing and for unclear reasons, it sometimes happens that an infant “forgets” to breath in. A tragedy may also occur for other reasons – vomit, the manifestation of an illness, swallowing of a small object.
