Researchers reported on Monday that using a fan to circulate air actually lowered the risk of sudden infant death syndrome in a study of nearly 500 babies.

They also say to use a firm mattress, remove toys and pillows from cribs, and keep infants from getting too warm. Over a decade such practices helped slash U.S. SIDS deaths by more than half from about 2,100 in 2003. However, SIDS remains the leading...
