A father invents new product to reduce Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

A father from Tampa, Florida, USA, has created a new product that he hopes will minimize the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in newborns. 

The product, which was launched on Kickstarter about 20 days ago, has already raised almost $100,000. 

According to the website, the product "holds your baby the way nature intended, no complicated mechanics, just an ergonomic design that naturally mimics your embrace." 

The "Crescent Womb," which comes in a variety of different colors, "naturally supports the baby in the “fetal-tuck” or the “fetal position” which is the natural position for new born babies." 

James Spencer, a father of a 22-day-old newborn said he created this product because he was always worried about his daughter at night. "By designing an infant sleeper that removes avoidable risks associated with early infancy I slept easier," he wrote on the page.
