Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the abrupt, unpredictable death of a baby that remains unexplained after a complete investigation and autopsy. Also known as crib death because it happens while a baby is napping or asleep at night, SIDS is a leading cause of death among infants over 1 month old. About 5,000 infants lose their lives from this each year. It most often strikes in the first four months of life, usually in the fall, winter, and early spring.
