How to reduce the risk of SIDS?

There are many things a parent can do to reduce the risk of SIDS
One of such things is placing your baby to sleep on a firm surface that complies with Australian Standard AS/NZS 8811.1 for infant mattress firmness. Have you heard so it this safety test?

Milari Organic Green Mattresses are firmly filled and independently tested by support consumer watchdog CHOICE to comply to the voluntary Australian Standard AS/NZS 8811.1 for infant mattress firmness.
Caregivers are usually advised to place babies on a "firm" surface to minimise the risk of suffocation. According to the developer of the test Dr Somers “ A baby sleeping on the surface that is too soft has more than 5 times the chance of dying from sudden death than one sleeping on a surface tested to this new Australian standard”


Did you know you can legally buy a cot mattress that doesn't meet product safety standards? Just because it's on retail shelves doesn't necessarily mean it's safe! Make sure your friends know to ask retailers about mattresses that comply and more importantly been independently tested by a credible agency.
