Reduce SIDS Risk with Pip and Grow’s The Smitten


This is a sponsored post. 

Sudden Unexplained Infant Death (SUID), which includes SIDS and accidental suffocation, is the leading cause of preventable death in infants under the age of one. Tragically, each year approximately 3,500 infants die suddenly and unexpectedly during sleep. Although experts have long debated what causes SIDS, we know for a fact that when putting baby to sleep, we must rid baby’s environment of loose blankets and bedding that can obstruct baby’s breathing.

Introducing the Smitten Bassinet Box. Based on a European tradition and manufactured right here in the USA, the Smitten Bassinet Box is a lightweight, portable safe sleep place for home, a relative’s house, playdates and more. Child safety experts at two leading universities conceived of this clever little box to help reduce the risk of SIDS in newborns.

How Should Babies Sleep

Experts advise that newborn babies who are not strong enough to lift their little heads sleep free of any loose materials that can interfere with breathing.

In a bassinet? Let me know in the comments below and thanks so much for reading!

    We lost our son Justin to SIDS in 1988..I wish they had had products like this back then.

  • Amy Deeter

    Such great info here. Thanks for sharing

  • Elicia P

    Yep, I will be the one to say it. My kids sleep in bed with me. Safely that is. Pretty much thought there was a study that safe co-sleeping was a reducer in SIDS.
    With that said. I think I read that in Europe they are sending new moms home with this for their babies to sleep in.
    Wish the US would get on board. I do like this option although, my kids still would sleep with me. As I have a co-sleeper next to the bed but it did not last too long.
