Down Bedding & Infants

We strongly recommend that you do not allow your baby to sleep with a down comforter, pillow or featherbed. We do not sell down bedding for use by infants.

 

An infant cannot roll over easily, or at will.  If an infant were to have it's face covered by a down comforter or pillow, or if the comforter or pillow were to break open and leak down, there may be a risk of suffocation.

 

Down comforters, pillows and featherbeds are warm. Infants do not regulate their internal body heat like an adult, and may become overheated when sleeping on a featherbed or covered with a down comforter. Infant overheating is one suspected cause of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

 

A study published in October of 2008 in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine states that sleeping in a room with a fan lowers a baby's risk of sudden infant death syndrome by 72 percent.

 

Other strategies for lowering the risk of SIDS include removing all soft bedding and putting babies on their back.

 

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is a largely unknown medical disorder that strikes without warning, taking the lives of thousands of apparently healthy infants each year. More information on how to minimize the risk of SIDS.
