Baby Sleep Positions, Kids' Hypertension & Benefits Of Moving

Posted: Updated:

A new study suggests many caregivers still fail to put infants in the safest sleeping position, on their backs. 

Researchers at Yale and Boston University found only 44 percent of parents always put babies to sleep on their backs. 

That's the best way, doctors say, to minimize sudden infant death syndrome.

Kids' Hypertension

High blood pressure among children and teens has increased in the last 30 years and often goes undiagnosed and untreated. 

That's according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. 

Doctors say early detection and prevention are key.

Move If You're Frail

The more frail you are, the more important it is to keep moving.

Doctors in Nova Scotia linked prolonged sitting to a higher risk of death in weak and frail adults. 

They say even getting around the house on a walker or cane can be highly beneficial.
