Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden death of an infant under one year of age, which remains unexplained after a thorough investigation by both physician and law enforcement.

SIDS is the most common cause of death in infants between the ages of one month and one year, affecting nearly one out of every 1,000 live births. There are 3,000 to 4,000 SIDS deaths in the United States per year. Approximately one baby every two hours of the day and night dies of SIDS.

There is no prevention for SIDS and there is no cure. However, there are recommendations to reduce the risk of SIDS.
