What is SIDS?
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden, unexpected death of an apparently healthy infant under one year of age that remains unexplained after the performance of a complete postmortem investigation, including an autopsy, an examination of the scene of death and a review of the medical history.

Facts About SIDS
 SIDS claims the lives of almost 2,500 infants in the US each year  that's nearly 7 babies every day. 

 SIDS is not caused by "baby shots." 
 SIDS deaths occur unexpectedly and quickly to apparently healthy infants, usually during periods of sleep. 
 SIDS is not caused by suffocation, choking, or smothering.
 SIDS is not caused by child abuse or neglect. 
 SIDS is not contagious. 
 SIDS occurs in families of all races and socioeconomic levels. 
 SIDS cannot be predicted or prevented and can claim any baby, in spite of parents doing everything right.
