Red Nose Day is held annually on the last Friday in June. This fundraiser is SIDS and Kids major form of raising awareness and much needed funds for the organisation. SIDS is the most common cause of death in children between one month and one year old.
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden, unexplained death of a newborn child during sleep.
The exact cause of SIDS is unknown but theories include environmental stressors such as sleeping on the stomach or side, overheating and accidental suffocation from soft objects or during bed sharing.
Proposed methods of reducing the risks include putting the child on their back to sleep, providing a firm mattress with no loose bedding and in a relatively cool sleeping environment.
