Is Your Baby’s Toxic Mattress Causing SIDS – Infographic
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is one of the leading causes of death among infants between the ages of 1 month to 1 year old. At IntelliBED, we want to do all we can to create safe, toxin-free mattresses that help parents reduce the risk of and prevent SIDS in their home. Research suggests that there is a link between the toxic materials used in making infant mattresses and SIDS – and there are real-life studies that have been done that support this hypothesis.
Specifically, Dr. T. James Sprott in New Zealand has been promoting a campaign where parents wrap their baby’s mattress with a specific wrap that prevents any toxic materials from being breathed in or touched by their baby. Since the campaign started in December of 1993 there have been ZERO SIDS deaths among babies who have slept on such wrapped mattresses, with over 200,000 babies sleeping on such a mattress. This result is especially significant given the fact that New Zealand used to be a country with one of the highest SIDS rates in the world.
Below is an infographic that walks you through this research and provides you with recommendations on what you can do to prevent SIDS.
