<P>Babies spend a lot of their time sleeping. Some sleeping arrangements are not safe. They can increase the risk of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) including SIDS and fatal sleeping accidents. SIDS remains the most common category of deaths between one month and one year of age. Research has found some important ways to reduce the risk of sudden infant death and create a safe sleeping environment for babies. This brochure provides you with information to help you create a safe sleeping environment for your baby. What is Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy? SUDI is the sudden, unexpected death of an infant in which the cause is not immediately obvious. SUDI includes Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and fatal sleeping accidents. When the term SIDS is used for a baby death, no known cause was found to explain the death after a thorough investigation. The term SUDI is used when investigations after the death have shown factors that may have contributed to the death, eg. an infection. Since the Reducing the Risk of SIDS program was introduced in Australia in 1991, sudden infant deaths have been significantly reduced. However, this reduction has not been as successful in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. Many of the risk factors for SUDI are common to SIDS and fatal sleeping accidents, therefore safe sleeping strategies will target all causes of SUDI. The risk of SUDI can be reduced by following some simple advice for taking care of baby. f DIDI Many of the risk factors for SUDI are common to SIDS FACT</p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/2/2/">Inside-Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/3/3/">Page-3</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/4/4/">Page-4</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/5/5/">Page-5</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/6/6/">Page-6</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/7/7/">Page-7</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/8/8/">Page-8</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/9/9/">Page-9</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/10/10/">Page-10</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/11/11/">Page-11</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/12/12/">Page-12</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/13/13/">Page-13</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/14/14/">Page-14</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/15/15/">Page-15</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1616/aojtojaqm/16/16/">Back-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publications/1616/x/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">site map</a></LI> </UL>
