At Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware we want to help keep babies as safe as possible during their slumber. That’s why we're working with the State of Delaware and the Delaware Healthcare Association to raise awareness about the risks of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
SIDS is the sudden and unexplained death of a baby younger than 1 year old. Most SIDS deaths are associated with sleep. So we want to help parents and caregivers understand SIDS and prevent this kind of tragedy from ever affecting their family.
So what should parents and caregivers know about SIDS and other sleep-related causes of infant death?
How can I lower my baby's risk of SIDS and other sleep-related causes of death? There’s no guaranteed way of preventing SIDS. But parents and caregivers can take steps to reduce the risk.
