In brief: SIDS rx?
There is no treatment for sids.
Sids is sudden death syndrome, and by time it is diagnosed the infant is already dead. The controversy continues over how to prevent sids. Associated risk factors include: sleeping on the baby's stomach; sleeping in bed with a parent; parental smoking; sleeping with thick bedding; family history of sids. Some cases are now known to be due to child abuse.
