Hearing the words "SIDS" and "prevention" together in the same sentence is such a bizarre thing for some, and offensive to others. But if you are a new mom, or a "mom to be" for the first time, you want to know everything you can about SIDS prevention. You want to unlock the mystery of this dreaded phenomenon and figure out how YOU can sleep well at night knowing that your baby is safe.
For decades, a movement called "mattress wrapping" has taken place. While the
discovery of the need of mattress wrapping was accidental, history has shown it
to be a very successful practice for SIDS (crib death) prevention. As a matter
of fact, it has proven 100% successful. For the whole story, please visit
Also, please read my article, "10 Steps to Healthy Living for Babies." It is my personal belief that babies
who die from crib death were more susceptible to the toxic gases from the
mattresses because they were already overexposed to a number of chemicals that
could be in your home right now. (This is also supported by one of my favorite
books, The Infant Survival Guide- Protecting Your Baby from the Dangers of
Crib Death, Vaccines, and Other Environmental Hazards.) A very well written article that you MUST read
is "Has the Cause of Crib Death Been Found?" by
Jane Sheppard. This is an article you will want to share with others!

SIDS prevention information is ALL over the internet, and
I know that it is hard to decide whom to trust. Most sites will tell you that
SIDS prevention is not possible; that you can reduce the risks, but can not
prevent it from happening. Famous baby doctors will insist that SIDS prevention
is just a myth- that we will always have to live with this fear until the baby
is over a year when we can move on to other parental fears. This is just not
true. I feel strongly that in the next 10 years, SIDS prevention- true
PREVENTION will be known by every mainstream doctor and every parent with new
babies. Many times new information comes out and everybody dismisses it; then
slowly people accept it and before you know it, it becomes mainstream. And
people can't remember when it seemed so odd. That is what is going to happen
toxic gas theory for crib death and SIDS prevention methods.
Let me explain what's going on in the "SIDS industry" that
you can probably understand. If you visit the sites of most SIDS organizations,
you will find a place where they will gladly accept your money for SIDS
"research." Some of this money will go into actual research (which is wasted
money according to the toxic gas theory for crib death), but a lot of it will go
into administrative costs, and into annual meetings, where everyone has to meet
at a posh (read: expensive) hotel to discuss SIDS prevention and sigh that there
is nothing new they have learned. This will go on year after year, and SIDS
prevention will never come to light, because that would overturn the entire
industry. (read: people would be out of jobs)
Dr. Jim Sprott has spent many years educating people
toxic gas theory and true crib death prevention. More importantly, not one baby has died sleeping on a
BabeSafe mattress, or mattress wrapped with a
BabeSafe mattress cover. If you
examine the evidence, I feel it is clear whom you should trust when it comes to
SIDS prevention advice. It's not about the money, it's about the results. And if
something is working, it needs to be spread from coast to coast.
