    Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. You can google it. There is no know cause for SIDS. Children just stop breathing. Very sad and tragic death for infants.

      I was just gonna add if you are looking for a humidifier. I love C's. His is a frog.
      Amazon.com: Crane Adorable 1 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier, Frog Shape: Health & Personal Care
      And they have other animals. It's pretty small and it's noisless. So it's really cool. That's all.

        Calia~ Thanks for the info about the humidifier to balance the fan. Austin has the frog one (I'm sure it's the same- didn't look at your link). We just hadn't started using it since he's in our room, but we will now. We have April Air in our furnace, but I'm sure the humidifier will be beneficial.

        Martha~ My fan's been going since I heard this info!! I told Kevin if "they" told me to line Austin's crib with Bingo Trolls to help prevent SIDS, I'd do it!!! That one REALLY cracked him up! Seriously, it (SIDS) is something you think about, and realize how lucky you are to have your beautiful baby. It was tragic when the pro football player lost his baby a few weeks ago.

          I love those animal humidifiers! Aiden has the penguin one even though I really wanted the frog one. The store was always out of that when we went

          Anyway, Aiden slept in my room with me (sometimes co-sleeping, sometimes not) until he was about 4 months and then he went into his room. I definitely wanted to keep him in my room with me those first few months since he was born during the winter and even with the heat on, our house had a tendency to get rather cold.

          He did sleep with the overhead ceiling fan on during the summer months.

          We originally bought a regular mattress from Babies R Us, but then I found organic crib mattresses (which I had no idea were available) and we sprung for one of those.

            Ditto everything you said! I love the penguin it's cute. I love the frog b/c he fits in the bathroom sink to refill! I don't have to take it all the way to the kitchen. It fits in his bathroom! I don't know about the others I haven't tried them.

            His mattress is also an organic mattress. It's so soft!! Not like the regular baby mattresses that are almost like plastic. I don't know where they got theres I can ask if anyones looking.

              Ewwww. I just clicked that link Jessica, roach killer! And I just remembered my boss's mattress won't help you guys b/c it's round. I don't know if anyone on here bought a round crib. So nevermind on that. Haha.

                Huh? Roach Killer? Did I post the wrong link? I have no idea what you are talking about


                EDITED: Ok, nevermind, I see what you are talking about! I thought I mistakenly had a link for a roach killer product website or something. Haha!

                  ROFL! I hate roaches. Totally off topic.....
                  I took C to the childrens musuem today and they have HISSING COCKROACHES there. It is so nasty. They are behind glass but still its gross. They also have these orange assassin bugs...um why would a bug be called an assassin if it wasn't good? Um no! Totally freaks me out!
