Be cautious when buying certain products.
Avoid baby products that aren’t consistent with safe sleep recommendations. This is especially true for products that claim to reduce the risk of SIDS or other sleep-related infant deaths. There’s just no evidence that this is true. If you’re not sure about a specific product, check the CPSC website.
Don’t use home cardiorespiratory monitors as a way to reduce the risk of SIDS. You can buy consumer wellness devices such as heart rate and pulse oximetry monitors. Some of these are wearable. But remember, there is no evidence that these devices work to decrease SIDS risk. They don’t have to meet the same requirements as medical devices either. Be aware that these devices can give you a false sense of security. It’s fine to use one if you want to, just don’t use it as a substitute for following all the above safe sleep guidelines.
