About 3,500 US infants die suddenly and unexpectedly each year. We often refer to these deaths as sudden unexpected infant deaths (SUID). Although the causes of death in many of these children can’t be explained, most occur while the infant is sleeping in an unsafe sleeping environment.
Health care professionals and researchers are unaware of the causes of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Parents and caregivers can take the following actions to reduce the risk of SIDS and other sleep-related causes of deaths.
