In brief: Awareness is key!

Things that are known to reduce to reduce the incidence of sids: 1) back to sleep position 2) use of ceiling fans, 3) avoid crowding crib with unnecessary toys, blankets, gadgets, etc.
4) avoid smothering by having infant sleep alone in crib, not in bed with parent/sibling 5) avoidance of passive smoking in household 6) use of pacifiers may help 7) train household members in cpr.

In brief: Back to sleep

Placing infants on their back to sleep has dropped the crib death rate by 40% in the us in the past decade or so.
Rate increases with prone or side sleeping , smokers in the household, prematurity, multiple births & poverty.
