Cot death

When a child less than one year of age (‘infant’) dies due to an unknown cause, it is known as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Since SIDS usually occurs while the baby is asleep it is also called cot death. Mothers who smoke, do not gain enough weight during pregnancy, become pregnant before 20 years of age, etc. are more prone to bear babies who may later on die due to SIDS. Also if the baby gets overheated during sleep or if she or he sleeps facing downwards then also death may occur. It is important to remember that these are some conditions which were found in surveys. It is not necessary that these can definitely cause SIDS.
