Gill Ryder - Regional Development Officer – The Lullaby Trust
Over 300 babies still die every year of SIDS, in the UK. Research has shown that several maternal and infant care factors are more frequently associated with babies who die of SIDS, than with those who survive. There is no advice that guarantees the prevention of SIDS but parents should be informed that by following the safer sleep advice, it is possible to lower the chance of this tragedy occurring.
Parents make decisions on safe baby care, for example about where to sleep their new baby and what bedding to buy, at different times. Therefore it is vitally important for child health professionals to target all parents with a safer sleep message.
The aim of The Lullaby Trust is to provide you with the tools to help you get this sensitive message across in a clear and accessible way.
