Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Prevention

In the United States, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the major cause of death in infants from one month to one year of age. SIDS happens to families of all social, ethnic and economic groups. Most SIDS deaths occur when babies are between two and four months of ageCurrently there is no known way to prevent SIDS. But after many years of research, we do know that babies sleep safer when placed on their back on a firm surface. Since the early 1990’s when the United States initiated the Back to Sleep Campaign the number of SIDS deaths has dropped by over 50 percent.  The links below contain brochures on the top 10 ways to reduce a child's risk of SIDS.
