What is SIDS?
Red Nose Day Australia 2023 will raise awareness about SIDS. The sudden and unexplained death of a newborn child in sleep is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Death sometimes happens early in the morning and no signs of struggle remain. It is not clear which is the exact cause of SIDS, but hypotheses include environmental stress such as sleeping on the stomach which makes it harder to breathe, overheating, and unintentional suffocation by soft items or during sharing a bed.
The approaches suggested minimizing the risk of SIDS include placing the child on their back when they sleep, giving the child a firm mattress without no loose bedding, and a reasonably cool atmosphere for sleeping. In infants between one month and a year of age, SIDS is the most common cause of death.
Now that you know about Red Nose Day Australia 2023 and SIDS, we hope you will make better decisions when it comes to your child or raise awareness among your friends, family, and acquaintances. We hope you will help make Red Nose Day Australia 2023 a success this year!
