SIDS course updated per latest AAP recommendations
CCEI's online child care training Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) course was updated according to the American Academy of Pediatrics' (AAP) recommendations recently released to reduce the occurrence and risks of SIDS. New findings by the AAP to reduce the risk of SIDS include recommendations for breastfeeding, infant immunizations, and removing bumper pads from cribs, which increase the potential risk of suffocation, strangulation or entrapment. This course is a "must take" for anyone that works or will be in contact with infants. This includes parents and grandparents, too!
