American Academy of Pediatrics Announces New Safe Sleep Recommendations to Protect Against SIDS
Infants should sleep in the same bedroom as their parents – but on a separate surface, such as a crib or bassinet, and never on a couch, armchair or soft surface — to decrease the risks of sleep-related deaths, according to a new policy statement released by the American Academy of Pediatrics. “SIDS and Other Sleep-Related Infant Deaths: Updated 2016 Recommendations for a Safe Infant Sleeping Environment,” draws on new research and serves as the first update to Academy policy since 2011. Recommendations call for infants to share their parents’ bedroom for at least the first six months and, optimally, for the first year of life, based on the latest evidence.

How do vaccines help babies fight infections? | How Vaccines Work
How do vaccines work with your child’s immune system to fight infections? Learn more here: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/childhood-vaccines Join baby Jack and his #parents as they find out how #vaccines help train your baby’s immune system to help prevent disease in this #HowVaccinesWork video. Vaccines contain a small number of weakened or dead antigens, the parts of germs that cause a baby’s immune system to go to work. After babies receive a vaccine, their immune system will remember that antigen and attack it if it ever enters the body again. Vaccines only contain a tiny fraction of the antigens that babies encounter in their everyday surroundings. It may take a few weeks for a vaccine to start working. Babies may also need more doses later to protect them. That’s why the recommended immunization schedule exists: it’s designed to give babies the best protection against 14 serious diseases by two years old. Learn more about #childhood immunizations by visiting https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/childhood-vaccines or talk with your child’s doctor.
