SIDS stands for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

If it is determinded that SIDS is the reason for your childs death, you won't really have a reason for the death which makes it harder for you to prevent with your next child.

They'll check for EVERYTHING. Inside and out, they will make sure your baby doesn't have a findable reason for him/her dying.

The doctors check every possible reason why your baby has died. If your baby is seemily healthy the risk is extrememly higher.

Research suggests that the real SIDS rate may be higher than people know. Fewer than 2,500 deaths this year will be considered SIDS. An additional 2,000 healthy babies under a year old will alsl die in theur sleep without reason.

SIDS is the unexplained cause of death in babies under a year old. This usually happens in their sleep and is sometimes called crib death because that is where it typcially happens.
