There are many things that may put your baby at risk while sleeping. Some risks may even be deadly if they experience suffocation, strangulation, entrapment, or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) - a term attributed to any infant death that cannot be explained. SIDS differs from sudden unexpected infant death (SUID), a term used to describe sudden and unexpected death of a baby less than 1 year old in which the cause was not obvious before investigation
According to the CDC, in 2017, there were 3,600 sudden unexpected infant deaths (SUID) in the United States. These deaths occur among infants less than 1 year old and have no immediate obvious cause. The three commonly reported types of SUID include: Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS); unknown cause; and accidental suffocation and strangulation in bed.
Per the CDC, in 2017, there were about 1,400 deaths due to SIDS; about 1,300 deaths due to unknown causes; and about 900 deaths due to accidental suffocation and strangulation in bed.
