Fear Of Flat head Syndrome Makes Parents Ignore Advice About Cot Death

Parents are ignoring advice to place babies to sleep on their backs to reduce the risk of cot death amid fears about a growing number of children with 'flat head syndrome'. //

In 2004, when the last survey was taken it was found that 329 babies were victims of cot death in the UK, of which 309 were aged under one year old.

Joyce Epstein, the director of the FSID, explained that their fear is that their lifesaving message for parents to sleep babies on the back to reduce the risk of cot death is being undermined by a mistaken perception that flattened heads poses a greater danger. She categorically stated that it does not.

She explained that the campaign is being undertaken to remind parents they must not abandon back sleeping for babies.

Research presented to the chief medical officer in 1993 suggested that failing to sleep babies on their backs increased their chances of cot death by nine times. Peta Smith, of the Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists, said they have been seeing an incr
