Risk of SIDS Reduced by the Use of Baby Dummies: Research

The night-time use of babies dummies halves the risk of cot death, the biggest cause of death among babies in Britain over one month old, according to research published Thursday.

A study of recent data by the American Academy of Pediatrics showed that the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome was halved when parents send their babies to sleep with a dummy, or pacifier, according to the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (FSID), the UK's leading Cot Death charity.

The use of dummies "generates strong feelings, both for and against, based mainly on cultural and family tradition and custom rather than on scientific evidence," FSID?s scientific advisor Professor George Haycock said.

The study conducted by the American academy had found that cot death risk "was halved" and the association "now recommends that a dummy should be offered every time an infant is put down to sleep, once breast feeding has been established," he added.
