Hello. I’m Dr. Hyatt, the neonatal intensive care unit at the children’s hospital at St. Peter’s university hospital am pleased to present this parent educational video. We thank you for watching sudden infant death syndrome or SIDS can be defined as the sudden death of an infant from an unknown cause during sleep. Although many since deaths are unexplained, some have been attributed to factors such as suffocation and entrapment. Sudden infant death occurs in infants less than one year, but most cases occur between one and four months of age.
How can it be prevented?
Provide a safe sleep environment for your baby wedges or positioners should never be used during sleep, never placed any soft objects such as stuffed animals, blankets, loose sheets, or any type of bumpers inside the crib infant should be placed on their back on a firm surface at all times, including naps and nighttime, never put a hat or a bib on an infant during sleep, avoid overheating your infant.
Trust them in no more than two layers and keep the temperature in the home where it is comfortable for an adult. Offer a pacifier at nap time or bedtime. If the infant falls asleep elsewhere, such as a car seat or swing, just move the infant to his or her back as soon as possible. Although rooming-in is recommended, never allow the infant to sleep in the same bed as you
We hope that you have found this ask St. Peter’s educational video. Helpful. Thank you for choosing St. Pete.
