Lots of African American moms put soft bedding such as pillows and blankets where babies sleep, despite warnings that the cushioning increases the risk of infant death, according to a new study

Researchers know that black babies are at least twice as likely as white, Latino, and Asian babies to die of accidental suffocation, strangulation or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) - also known as "crib death." While much of that higher incidence may be related to genetics, some of it might be due to black parents putting infants in a dangerous sleeping place or position.
