Des Moines, Iowa is dealing with a rash of infant deaths from apparent accidental suffocation.  Three babies died within a four day period this week, either from their parents rolling over on them in bed, or because a loose blanket was left in the crib.  Loose blankets can increase the risk of SIDS by trapping carbon dioxide around the baby’s airway.
