October is SIDS Awareness Month


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has designated October as SIDS Awareness Month.  SIDS and SUIDS (Sudden Unexpected Infant Death) are major causes of infant death.  Sleep-related suffocation is the leading cause of infant-injury death and is preventable.

Babies should sleep Alone, on their Backs, and in a Crib free of blankets, pillows, stuffed toys, and bumpers.  All parents, parents-to-be, and caregivers need to be educated about safe sleep for babies.
