Facts about SIDS

*SIDS is when a baby seems healthy, but dies unexpectedly, while sleeping for no other apparent reason.

*SIDS is also called “crib death” but is not caused by sleeping in a crib.

*No one can predict which babies will die from SIDS. There is no known way to prevent SIDS but the risk of SIDS can be reduced.

*SIDS can happen to any family, regardless of their race, religion, ethnic or economic group.

*SIDS cannot be passed on to other children, family, or friends.

What SIDS is NOT:

*Not caused by vomiting/choking
*Not caused by Immunizations
*Not Contagious
