Dealing with "curing" something as devastating as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) seems like a huge undertaking. The ambiguity surrounding what causes SIDS may be discouraging, but there are some policy and healthcare solutions to SIDS that help to lessen some serious risk-factors, keeping families a little safer and working to reduce SIDS deaths long-term. Given the syndrome's prevalence, the problems really can't be ignored much longer.
Making sure that legislation and healthcare policies aid families in their health goals will help keep babies safe, reducing the number of SIDS deaths. By communicating with political figures and lawmakers that these solutions are important, high SIDS numbers will hopefully become a thing of the past.
