Many parents are already aware of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or cot death, but it continues to claim lives. There is one unexplained infant death in every 3,000 births in England and Wales, and 90% of SIDS happens in the first six months of life. Ben Wakeling, the author of 'How I Came to Hold You' interviewed Jennie, whose daughter Matilda died of SIDS. You can read her story on the Independent website.
To help increase awareness of SIDS, the Lullaby Trust has published an infographic and video campaign, both of which are below. Please help continue to raise awareness of all baby loss, so that one day it can be a thing of the past.
