SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) Awareness Month Quiz

October is SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) Awareness Month. Take our Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Quiz to test your knowledge.

SIDS stands for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and is taking a huge toll in minority communities. Take this quiz to see how much you know about SIDS and how to prevent it.

1. SIDS is most likely to occur between the ages of one to six months.


2. Parents can lower the risk of SIDS by placing babies on their stomach to sleep.


3. White infants are more prone to SIDS.


4. SIDS is caused by shots, medicines and vaccines.


5. Smoking does not put your baby at an increased risk for SIDS.


6. Breastfeeding your baby can help protect against SIDS.
