Based on this article, it would seem as if SIDS is a worldwide occurence. However, we very rarely hear about this in our own country. Could it be that we are neglecting a simple solution which could prevent the needless death of millions of children every year?

In the west they take greater care to keep the baby under survellance all the time and use all kinds of monitors whereby the parents remain alert to any distress calls of the baby. However in India and infact most of the developed world, babies are definetly left to themselves much more. Your assetion does not cut any ice Niketu

SIds is far more prevalent in a situation where the baby is sleeping unattended in the absence of the parents. America is one of the few cultures where babies are generally made to sleep in their own bedroom. compared to this in India a young baby is almost never left alone. This fact has to explain the relative absence of SIDS cases in India

It may not be a modern phenomenon at all... its just that experts are now understanding this condition better. And therefore there is more awareness.

On reading your article I was puzzled about the statement that males were more prone to SIDS. Could you please tell me why? Also what is the age group that SIDs is applicable to?

Probably the reason more males are prone to SIDS could be becausre the male sex is genetically the weaker one?
