Sudden Infant Death Syndrome: You should definitely avoid these risks

So schützt du dein Baby vor dem plötzlichen Kindstod

# 5 Maintain the correct room temperatureMany parents think that if their baby’s hands are cold, it could be a harbinger of sudden infant death syndrome. But that is not the case, almost all babies have cold hands. Heavy sweating during sleep, on the other hand, is more of a warning sign. Doctors also associate excessive heat with sudden infant death syndrome. The ideal room temperature should be between 16 ° C and 18 ° C.

# 6 quit smokingSmoking should be absolutely taboo even during pregnancy. But you should also stay away from cigarettes after giving birth and after breastfeeding. Make sure your child is in a smoke-free environment.

# 7 Breastfeed your baby when you canAn analysis of several studies published in the British journal “The Lancet” suggests that breastfeeding can also reduce the risk of sudden infant death.

# 8 Let your bottle-fed child sleep with a pacifierIf you are unable to breastfeed or have made a conscious decision against it, doctors advise you to let your baby sleep with a pacifier. They assume this prevents the air supply from being blocked while you sleep

# 9 Take your checkups conscientiouslySudden infant death syndrome cannot be predicted, but regular check-ups by the pediatrician are still helpful.
