Is there anything more heartbreaking than the death of an infant? In 14 Ways to Protect Your Baby from SIDS: Safe Sleep Advice from the Experts, ideal for prospective parents and the parents and caregivers of very young children, doctors Rachel Y. Moon and Fern R. Hauck explain what we know about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and other sleep-related deaths, and they discuss which infants are at greatest risk.

"Good quality educational literature. . .that is thorough yet concise and accessible can be hard to find, so it was quite gratifying to read this patient-friendly resource. . ..[S]olid information in an accessible and conversational style," writes physician Bill Cayley in Family Medicine, a professional journal.

"The 'Place your baby on his back for every sleep time' chapter is particularly helpful, addressing both common parental misconceptions and giving helpful suggestions for discussing back sleeping with grandparents or other caregivers who may not appreciate its importance," he continues, concluding, "I would highly recommend this resource, both as a concise reminder of safe-sleep best practices for the primary care clinician and a quality teaching tool for patients and prospective parents."
