A team of Rutgers University scientists has sought to clear up any confusion and promote safe sleep for mom and baby by developing a free mobile app, reports NJ Spotlight.

This includes placing babies on their backs — not their bellies — in a crib without any blankets, toys, or pillows; not sharing a bed with the infant; and not smoking.

The SIDS Center of New Jersey, which works with Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and Hackensack Meridian Health, launched the SIDS Info app earlier this month, based on guidelines developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Safe sleep practices have been proven to significantly reduce the number of these deaths, a category that now includes accidental suffocation and strangulation, experts note.
