SIDS Prevention

SIDS (Sudden infant death syndrome) Prevention

SIDS can be prevented by monitoring your baby’s heart rate and breathing with Infant Apnea Monitor.

Siblings of a baby who died of SIDS are eligible for OHIP covered Smart Monitor rental for up to 9 month.

SIDS Definition

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the unexplained death, usually during sleep, of a seemingly healthy baby. For parents, it's a devastating and shocking childhood illness — there's no warning and there's no definitive cause.

Most SIDS deaths occur in children between 2 months and 4 months of age. Sudden infant death syndrome rarely occurs before 1 month of age or after 6 months.

Researchers have discovered some factors that may put babies at risk for sudden infant death syndrome. They've also identified some measures you can take to help protect your child from sudden infant death syndrome. Perhaps the most important is placing your baby on his or her back to sleep.
