My mom sent me a website for a New Zealand product made of polyethylene that you use to wrap the crib mattress to protect baby from toxic chemicals that are supposedly commonly found in mattresses and other bedding. They say this product is 100% effective at preventing SIDS. I have never heard of this and don't know what to make of it. Anyone know anything about this?

There is no way of ever proving that it cuts down on the risk of SIDS let alone is "100% effective at preventing SIDS." In some instances, SIDS is believed to be caused by sleep apnea. The baby stops breathing and just never starts again. By the time you discover it, it's too late. And that has nothing to do with so-called toxic chemicals in mattresses. Don't bother with it; just follow the known precautions-- no loose bedding, sleeping on their back, etc.
Never heard of it, and definitely don't believe the "100% effective in preventing SIDS" statement..... If that were true (which it can't be) then this product would be all over the news/stores and be very common... not something that no one has heard of before.
