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 due to caregivers wrong doing
*Not Suffocation or Overlay
