The hazardous effects of cats around babies after birth?

Cats present no danger to babies. This is an old wives tale (a myth). People used to think that cats could "steal your breath" and kill you, and that they were especially dangerous to babies. Cats do not "steal your breath." They just like to sleep near (or on) sleeping humans, because they enjoy the warmth of the human body.The fact that cats often like to sleep near your head caused people to think that they somehow suffocated babies (and adults). Babies sometimes die of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). The family would find the baby dead in its crib, and the cat sleeping next to the baby. Because they could not come up with a scientific explanation for the baby's death, they would assume the cat had done it, when in fact, the cat was just an innocent bystander.No one really knows exactly what causes SIDS, but we doknow that it is definitely not caused by cats.
