In brief: Yes..Back & No Smoke
The studies clearly show there are things that can be done to reduce the incidence of sids.
There are 2 essential things to reduce your baby's risk of sids. Sleep them on their backs every time they sleep and do not smoke - not even if you go outside. The chemicals in smoke end up on your clothes and affect baby's breathing pattern. Also, sleeping in separate bed but in parent's room is safest!
