Will this prevent cot death (or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome - SIDS)?

As with any other available monitoring solution, Bluebell does not prevent cot death (also known as SIDS) and should not be relied upon to do so. Bluebell is not intended to replace your adult supervision and care.
Research (so far) has not found any particular reason for SIDS and it is likely to be a combination of factors. However, research has identified a number of risk factors that are clearly outlined in the Safe Sleep Guide from The Lullaby Trust and other experts. Bluebell can detect some of these risk factors: if your baby has turned onto its tummy, room temperature and/or your baby being too hot or cold. It also alerts you if no breathing movement is detected for up to 20 seconds.
