SIDS, age, and risks

May 3, 2003

Is there and age where they are not at risk anymore for getting SIDS?

May 6, 2003

The risk of SIDS declines dramatically after age 6 months. 90% of events
occur by that age, and the incidence of sudden unexplained or unexpected
death after the first birthday is one one hundredth that of that during the
first year of life. But sudden death without explanation occurs at all ages,
only the names and causes change, if they are even recognized,
