In order to promote safe sleep and avoid infant deaths, these states are giving out free baby boxes.
New Jersey in partnership with The Baby Box Co. launched the baby box program that give parents a box full of newborn essentials. The organizers aim to lower the rate of infant morality and help improve family health care.
It is revealed in a study on baby care that many new mothers don't get appropriate advice on breastfeeding practices, pacifier use and immunization from the physicians. In some cases, the parents of the new-born receive advices from family members as well as from medical professionals that contradict with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations.
A number of physical and biological factors could lead to babies dying of SIDS, say researchers.
According to a new study, one in eight sudden and sleep-related deaths in infants occur while sleeping on the sofa.
According to a new study, researchers found that only two-thirds of all parents interviewed placed their babies on their backs during sleeping time.
A new study found that custom-designed helmets barely improved "flat head" syndrome.
An increasing number of parents are sharing their beds with their babies, according to a new study.
Researchers found that 47 percent of newborns suffer from flat spots on their heads, a condition that is not considered to be lethal.
A new study reveals why parents should never bring their babies to bed. New research revealed that newborns who sleep in the same bed as their parents are five times more likely to die of sudden infant death syndrome.
