Yes: Due to neruvous system immaturity...But if your baby is younger than 6 months and there is the possibility that you may be overbundling her at bedtime now that the weather is chill -- overheating is a definite sids risk. Experts say the ideal room temperature should be between 68 and 72° f. In addition, using blankets, comforters, or quilts can impair your baby's ability to breathe.
