Contrary to popular opinion,
SIDS/Crib Death can be fully prevented.
You are able to prevent SIDS/Crib Death from happening with your baby with 100 percent certainty.
Use the New Zealand SIDS pervention method describd on this website.
Read, act on and fully follow this mattress wrapping method like hundreds of thousands before you have with no SIDS deaths.
BabeSafe Statistics show you why we can say this.
The essence of what you need to know is given in this image.
Summarized, mattress wrapping requires the use of a BabeSafe® mattress cover over your baby's mattress with only 100% pure cotton bedding, no padding fill.
Yes, contrary to common practice, 100% cotton blankets and 100% cotton bedding are permitted under the BabeSafe CotLife2000 Protocol to prevent SIDS, just no padding or quilting.
Further points we would like to make:
Our original BabeSafe® mattress covers we offer are free from the chemical elements phosphorous, arsenic and/or antimony. These same elements in mattresses are part of the formation of the toxic gases under the Toxic Gas Theory. Our covers will provide a barrier for your baby from any BPA or latex in a mattress, as well as block VOCs' and formaldehyde's off-gassing.
Get your cover in the BabeSafe<sup® Store on our website or on Facebook. Just to let you know, covers are only available in the infant mattress sizes. Visit our BabeSafe® Store.
Boy babies are more likely to succumb to SIDS than girl babies. See why in that FAQ.
Please read on the BabeSafe website in New Zealand that our BabeSafe® mattress covers do not cause suffocation.

In 1989 Mr. Barry A. Richardson, a British consultant scientist, proposed the theory that SIDS/Crib Death was caused by toxic gases generated from elements commonly present in babies' mattresses. Dr. T. J. Sprott, a New Zealand forensic scientist, had suspected the same since the mid-1980s. Dr. Sprott felt that SIDS babies were not dying from a medical condition, but from nerve gas being generated in the baby's sleeping environment.
As a result of their research, Mr. Richardson and Dr. Sprott found that most baby mattresses and many bedding items contain small amounts of the elements phosphorus, arsenic and/or antimony, which are incorporated for purposes such as plastic softener, fire retardant or as part of the manufacturing process. In addition, a normally harmless household fungus (Scopulariopsis brevicaulis) often grows in mattresses. Separately, the presence of the elements phosphorus, arsenic or antimony in mattresses and bedding does not pose danger. But when heat and moisture in the baby's crib results in fungal growth, the fungus interacts with these elements, causing the generation of extremely poisonous gases. If even a small dose of these gases is ingested by a baby, the baby's breathing and heart functions stop, resulting in SIDS/Crib Death.
Mattress Wrapping Method is Solution to SIDS Problem
In the mid-1990s Dr. Sprott commenced a nationwide mattress-wrapping campaign in New Zealand to eliminate SIDS/Crib Death. In 1996 he invented the BabeSafe® crib mattress cover, which is a non-toxic plastic cover in the form of a bag, manufactured under strict requirements to contain no detectable phosphorus, arsenic or antimony. The baby's mattress is sealed inside this protective cover, with the result that no gas generation occurring in the mattress can reach the baby.
Since BabeSafe® mattress covers came onto the market in New Zealand in 1996, there has been no reported case of SIDS/Crib Death among the very large number of babies who have slept on BabeSafe® wrapped mattresses (and using the specified bedding for a wrapped mattress).
