Soft Bedding Top Cause of Sleep-Related Infant Suffocation

A recent study has shown that soft bedding is the leading cause of sleep-related suffocation deaths in infants.  The study analyzed SUID cases from the CDC between 2011-2014.  It found that about 253 of the 1812 deaths (14%) involved suffocation.

the AAP recommends that infants sleep on their backs, either in a crib or bassinet with no soft objects or bedding.
