Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS): The Cover Ups & The Truth

February 3, 2016 |

When I was pregnant with my first born, I was terrified of sudden infant death syndrome, also known as SIDS. Thinking about it gave me so much anxiety. It kept me up at night. I even bought an over-priced “SIDS PROOF” mattress cover in hopes of preventing such a terrible tragedy. Little did I know at the time that SIDS had nothing to do with what mattress cover I chose.

As cut and dry as it comes, mainstream medical advice claims that sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) “just happens” and “there is nothing one can do to prevent it.”

Can we think about that for a moment? Your child suddenly dies and there is no reason for it? As a mother and a researcher, I find that extremely unacceptable and inaccurate, and I am going to explain in detail why you should never accept “it just happens” as an answer.

What is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)?

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is when a child suddenly stops breathing and dies. It normally happens during sleep. According to the Centers For Disease Control, SIDS is rare, only occurring in less than 3,000 babies per year, and only 1,500 in 2013.

The problem with the above chart and statistics is that these numbers are not even remotely accurate. Again, we are first looking at this from a conscious parents’ perspective. We do not take “It just happens” as an acceptable answer and we do not take “Unknown Cause” as an acceptable answer. After the “Back To Sleep” Campaign launched in 1994, SIDS cases seemed to plummet. But what isn’t publicized is that after that campaign launched, causes of death titles were also changing from “SIDS” to “Unknown Causes” and a plethora of other titles. The percentages of “Unknown Causes” or other muddled titles went up, and the SIDS rates went down.
