That quote comes from a new review of the current understanding of the risk factors for SIDS.
SIDS is the leading cause of death in infants aged 1 month to 1 year in the United States.
While we don't know everything about SIDS yet, this review tells us that we do know some major risk factors for infants include:
- prone and side sleeping
- soft bedding
- bed sharing
- inappropriate sleep surfaces (including sofas)
- exposure to tobacco smoke
In other words, vaccinating your child is not a cause of SIDS.
Facts matter because life matters.
