Sudden infant death syndrome

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), also known as cot death or crib death, is the sudden unexplained death of a child less than one year of age. Diagnosis requires that the death remains unexplained even after a thorough autopsy and detailed death scene investigation. SIDS usually occurs during sleep. There is usually no evidence of struggle and no noise produced.

The Safe to Sleep Campaign is designed to educate the public of the danger of SIDS and ways to help reduce the risk.

One huge reason for SIDS involves baby's sleep position. Some families buy sleep positioners to try to help with this, but they do so much more harm than good. Please watch this video for information on why these and other items can harm infants.
