In honor of Safe Sleep Awareness Month, CSN has released a new blog post with data and resources on SUID.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ([CDC], 2018), sudden unexpected infant deaths (SUID) refers to:
- Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
- Accidental suffocation and strangulation in bed
- Other unknown causes during the first 12 months of life
Each year in the United States, approximately 3,500 infants die suddenly and unexpectedly. The frightening fact about SUID is that it
can happen without warning and to infants who seem otherwise healthy.
