Babies who sleep in a room with a fan are 72% less likely to die from SIDS, according to a new study from "Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine." Fans offered even more protection to babies sleeping in warm rooms, where temperatures were over 69 degrees. Although opening a window also appeared to reduce the risk of SIDS, authors say this finding could have been due to chance. Although doctors don't know exactly why fans seem to help, it's possible fans improve air circulation, preventing infants from rebreathing exhaled carbon dioxide, which can pool up in the gap between a baby's face and the mattress.
