In a word, no. I have studied every piece of information on this subject for five years now, and I have never heard of that. Generally the idea is:

1. The child is over heated, either by too many clothes or blankets, or the temperature of the room. They say to put the child in a sleeper with the footies and long sleeves, and no blanket. They should be on their back, so the child's body can release heat from the trunk area. Keep the temperature of the room the same as in the rest of the house, i.e. if you're comfortable so is your baby.

2. A "rebreathing" child basically suffocates, either conventionally by something covering the face, or the child breathes in his exhaled air and suffocates that way (rebreathing). To protect him from this you can put the baby to sleep on his back so he doesn't rebreathe. Also, the mattress must be firm. There should be no blankets, pillows, stuffed toys, or loose sheets in crib.

There is a lot of controversy about sleep sharing (sleeping with baby). You could roll on top of the baby, and there are pillows and blankets in the parental bed -- some possibilities of SIDS occurring. But I also read a study years ago about a parent's breathing possibly making the baby fall into breathing sync, thus helping to ensure the baby continues to breath as long as you do. There may also be something about your breath blowing into their face when you are sleeping together, and it supposedly forces air in the child making him breath.

There are mattresses one could buy with a fan inside it that does the forcing of air for you. Someone once said sleeping on a slight incline, there for the crib wedge. Personally with my two, soon to be three, I put them on a good mattress, on their backs, kept the temperature comfy, nothing was allowed in the crib but the baby, and no smoking was allowed in the house (if anyone still does that, it may also be linked to causing SIDS).

I was probably a little extra cautious and woke up all through the night, and could not go back to sleep until I saw the gentle rise and fall of their tummy that meant they where breathing. I think being vigilent, and educating ourselves is the only way we can save our babies from this silent killer.

P.S. Learn how to do CPR, please.

Sids by definition is the unexpained death of a seemingly healthy infant. As I see your answer I can only assume you have never experienced sids as you do realize how insensitive this answer.

I have a two year old daughther and my son would have been three months. I did everything you are reccomending and I knew CPR to, infact we live across the street from the hospital from the moment he passed out we got him to a hospital and he still did not make it.

You are talking good preventions, but you have to be aware these are not the causes of sids. Sids can not be defined and in my research. SIDS CAN NOT BE STOPPED.

Your baby can not die from not burping enough, but I suggest for the mother or father who asked the question talk to your town's local coroner or police department. You may find more comfort their then when you Google. Everyone has their own opinions and it will drive you crazy and know you are not alone.

Are SIDS and apnea related?

SIDS is not the same as apnea. Many people have apnea and apnea has killed infants. Infants with apnea can be resuscitated. An apnea monitor (AKA cot monitor) can detect when a SIDS victim stops breathing � but remember, a SIDS victim is already dead when that happens. Note: Infants with apnea usually are placed on apnea monitors for apnea, not to prevent the unpreventable. And many SIDS parents do use apnea monitors on subsequent children � this has mainly a placebo effect on the parents. No, they are not. You can revive a baby that has apnea if it is not too late. A SIDS baby you can't revive. SIDS is undetectable and you never know when it will hit. With apnea a baby can stop breathing and start again. SIDS is totally different.

Is SIDS caused by immunizations?

SIDS is not caused by immunizations. Most children get their immunizations at about four months which coincides with the average age. But children without immunizations also die of SIDS. Answer There is absolutely no medical evidence that SIDS is caused by getting your child immunized. SIDS is still a very new topic in the medical field but the most common ways to help protect your baby from SIDS is to place your child on their back when sleeping and keep all extra blankets, pillows and stuffed animals out of their crib. Immunizations are an important way to help protect your baby from several diseases that can be dangerous even deadly to them. Their systems haven't built up the immunity needed to fight infections. Answer Excerpt from: healthboards.com I have done extensive research on vaccines after almost losing my daughter from a severe reaction to the DPT vaccine. I truly believe that vaccines are in direct relation with Sids. Many children die every year or are severly damaged in some form from vaccines. The word has to be spread that they are very dangerous. I would be very interested in finding out from parents who have lost there children just how soon before they were given shots. Parents really need to research the facts on vaccines. You would be very surprised the actual facts of what your exposing your children to. PLEASE DO RESEARCH BEFORE YOU MAKE THE DECISION TO GIVE VACCINES. VISIT: Answer2: Much research is still being down to find the causes of SIDS, why a healthy baby just fails to wake up one day. So far contributing factors like smoking and the position of the baby has been linked to causes, but no one specific things has been said to be the cause of all crib death.

About SIDS?

About SIDSNothing is more devastating for a parent than to wake up and discover that their newborn baby has died in the night. Unfortunately, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, is one of the leading causes of infant deaths across the country. Keep your baby safe by staying informed about SIDS and avoiding behaviors that increase your child's risk of getting the disease.Although the cause of SIDS is unknown, the syndrome is still one of the leading causes of death among children under age one. Parents are encouraged to only let their baby sleep on their backs to reduce the likelihood of getting SIDS. The age group most affected by the syndrome are infants between two and four months.The scariest thing about SIDS is that most of the time there are no warning signs. Parents settle their child in for the night and by the morning the syndrome has taken hold.With no warning signs, it is difficult to give parents instructions on how to protect their little ones. However, the following behaviors are a few risk factors that could lead to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome:Having multiple babies, like twins or tripletsBaby exposure to secondhand smokeLetting baby sleep on its stomachBeing born prematureReceiving little or no prenatal careDrug usage during pregnancyBeing born to a teen motherDealing with SIDSIf you or someone you know has lost of child to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, remind them that it is not their fault. The cause of SIDS is unknown, and grieving parents are sometimes left confused and lost about what happened to their newborn. If you or a loved one is dealing with this issue, seek out grief relief counselors to help you cope with your loss.For more information on SIDS, visit theAmerican Sudden Infant Death Syndromewebsite

What is the cause of SIDS?

Nobody knows what the cause of SIDS is, there are a few ways you can prevent it. One way is to have your baby sleep on their side. Most people want their baby to sleep on their backs, but this is not good because if the baby spits up in it's sleep he/she can choke on the spit-up. There are other ways to prevent it, but you will have to do some internet searching to find out.Alan Phillips, Director ofCitizens for Healthcare Freedom states:"Studies internationally have shown vaccination to be a cause of SIDS , (SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, is a "catch-all" diagnosis given when the specific cause of death is unknown; estimates range from 5,000 to 10,000 cases each year in the US).One study found the peak incidence of SIDS occurred at the ages of 2 and 4 months in the US, precisely when the first two routine immunizations are given, while another found a clear pattern of correlation extending three weeks after immunization.Another study found that 3,000 children die within 4 days of vaccination each year in the US (amazingly, the authors reported no SIDS/vaccine relationship), while yet another researcher's studies led to the conclusion that at least half of SIDS cases are caused by vaccines.Initial studies suggesting a causal relationship between SIDS and vaccines were quickly followed by vaccine-manufacturer-sponsoredstudies concluding that there is no relationship between SIDS and vaccines; one such study claimed that there was a slightly lower incidence of SIDS in vaccines.However, many of these studies were called into question by yet another study that found "confounding" had erroneously skewed the results of these studies in favor of the vaccine.At best, there is conflicting evidence."
