Minnesota report linked infant deaths to unsafe crib, sleeping practices


State health officials are urging parents and caregivers to follow basic safe-sleep rules for babies in the wake of an analysis showing that nearly all of the 56 sudden unexplained infant deaths in Minnesota last year were attributable to unsafe sleeping environments.

Whether in homes, day-care centers or other locations, 52 infant deaths in 2014 involved sleep-related causes such as babies sleeping in beds with parents or siblings, lying on their stomachs, or sleeping with loosefitting sheets, blankets or toys that presented suffocation hazards.
