After being affected by the unthinkable when a loved one rolled over in the middle of the night, I found myself needing to find answers. How do things like this happen to ordinary people?
I knew there had to be a better way to keep infants safe while sleeping!
In 2008, I began collaborating with my sister, a pediatrician on the design of a crib mattress that would contain no fiber fill or other materials that could cause suffocation or the buildup of hazardous carbon dioxide.
The SafeSleep® “breathable” crib mattress design was launched in 2010. In 2013, we were awarded a utility patent for the first completely breathe-through crib mattress design. By 2016, over 80,000 SafeSleep® crib mattresses were sold.
Today, my knowledge of SIDS and safe infant sleep has earned me the recognition as a “SIDS Content Expert.” My expertise has been sought to review sleep surfaces involved in infant sleep-related death cases.
I know firsthand the devastation of losing a relative to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) which fostered my interest in pediatrics and the development of sleep products that reduce infant sleep-related deaths.
I am a pediatrician with over 30 years of experience in the field of child wellness and safety.
I am a recipient of the regional and national awards for clinical and academic excellence. I have served on several national committees and authored many peer-reviewed publications to advance the health of children. I am a fellow of the national American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and member of my local Safe Sleep Task Force.
As an expert on infant sleep surfaces, I worked with members of the AAP’s Safe Sleep Task Force to include information on the benefits of air-permeable infant sleep surfaces in their 2016 technical report on SIDS and Other Sleep-Related Infant Deaths. This report provides the evidence used to support the AAP’s “Recommendations for a Safe Infant Sleeping Environment” used by all safe sleep advocates (more).
