I do believe that 18 month old babies can die from SIDS- I think that the medical community now refers to it as SUDS or SUDC Sudden Unexplained Death of a Child. My son died from SIDS at 2 months 4 days and in the 2 years since then I have met many other families going through my nightmare and one lost a 3 year old to SIDS/SUDC so yes, it can happen to toddlers and older- it's just less common.

Yes, children can die from SIDS at 18 months old. I know of a case where the child was almost two years old (22 months). They still had the same autopsy reports and were unexplained deaths, "SIDS". It is very rare , but unfortunately can still happen.

on Thursday august 11th my husband and I put are son to bed who was 18 months and 25 days and when we checked on him before we went to go to bed he was already gone he had just laid down an hour before that my husband and I have replayed that night a thousand times and we have to settle for the reason they gave us which was sids.

Toddlers do not die of SIDS. After six months of age, SIDS is extremely rare. The acronym SIDS stands for Sudden INFANT Death Syndrome. Toddlers do not die of SIDS. Marks anywhere on the body of a dead infant would be cause for a coroners examination and possible inquiry.

SIDS is not caused by colds. Many infants get their first runny nose around four months. A SIDS victim can die WITH a cold but not FROM a cold.

I can find none. SIDS is when babies die for unknown reasons.

SIDS can't be treated. SIDS stands for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. So if your child had SIDS that means your child is now dead. There are ways to prevent SIDS from occurring though.

Babies can die from a number of things. Abuse, neglect, SIDs, disease. Babies CANNOT die from being wrapped too tightly. You're supposed to swaddle them when they're newborns. Honestly, babies can die just like anyone else. There has to either be something seriously wrong with the baby or SIDS can kill them. But new research has discovered that SIDs is linked to certain shots given to infants.

There are no signs to tell if your baby will pass to SIDS. SIDS is sudden & silent & unexpected. There is no way to tell until your baby is gone.

Not sure about sids, but it has 7 sides.

The exact connection has not been identified but the research has shown there are a greater number of babies that die from sids when the parents smoked while pregnant and even after the baby is born.

User Avatar

Smoking doesn't cause SIDS. I lost a baby to SIDS in 2003 and I didn't smoke. There are remarks that it could be related but because no one knows what causes SIDS everyone just speculates.There is a strong correlation between parental smoking and SIDS.
