Re: What does research say about SIDS

what I've learned about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is that it is a sudden, unexplainable death of a healthy baby. The exact causes are unknown. There are many possibilities that are related to a parents smoking, the child sleeping on their stomach, which can cause them to asphyxiate, and overheating.To reduce the risk of SIDS give the infant a pacifier, the sucking will allow them to remain active. Also if you breast feed your newborn they have a firm head, this builds up there muscles and allows them to pick up there heads if and when they are sleeping and cant get enough oxygen.

hope this helps!
