  • Problem Definition
  • Core values and the limits of existing products
  • Product Development
infants die mainly because of suffocation and sids
1. Problem definitionInfants die mainly because of suffocation and SIDS.
  • Annually 3258 infants die in Korea
  • Suffocationis the number one cause of
  • infant deaths.
  • 20% of infant deaths are caused by suffocation.
  • SIDS is also increasingly causing
  • infants death
  • SIDS: Sudden Infants Death Syndrome

the main causes of infant deaths are suffocation and sids
1. Problem definitionThe main causes of infant deaths are suffocation and SIDS

Sleeping on stomach

Sleeping on the stomach increases the baby's risk of suffocation and SIDS

Physical pressure on babies

Because babies breath with their stomachs, pressing the baby’s chest can cause suffocation.

Excessively hot temperature

Overheated bedding increases the risk of suffocation and SIDS

Infant protection products’ marketability

Growing popularity of infant protection products

Parent’s concern about their baby’s safety

In-depth interview:

Su-Jin Bae (35, female)

I always feel anxious for fear that my baby sleeps on his stomach and dies. And whenever I feed my baby breast milk at night, I worry that the baby might suffocate when my arm puts pressure on the baby’s chest while I am drowsy.

Parents worry about their babies and therefore, increases the popularity of infant protection products, which implies that there will be a great demand of anti-suffocation & SIDS products.
