In brief: Unknown

The extended name is Sudden and Unexplained Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS for short.
Research on the problem is difficult because the victims body breaks down quickly after death.Population studies point risk factors, like cigarette smoking in the house, prone sleeping, prematurity,etc.
