What is SIDS

SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, is defined as the death of an infant between the ages of 1 and 12 months, that remains unexplained after a thorough investigation, which includes a complete autopsy, examination of the death scene, and review of the victim’s medical history. SIDS is declared the cause of death only after all other known and possible causes of death have been ruled out.

16 SIDS is the leading cause of death among infants between 1 and 12 months of age in the United States. It claims 8 babies every day in America. That's approximately 3000 precious lives every year.
