Abstract:

Although the evidence suggests that promoting breastfeeding will reduce the risk of SIDS, some of the other risk-reduction advice given to parents seems counter-intuitive in terms of enabling breastfeeding. This talk will take a closer look at the epidemiological evidence (or lack of it) surrounding the promotion of dummy use, putting babies to sleep in cardboard boxes, the divergence in public health approaches to hazardous sleeping environments and the impact this may be having on international SIDS rates.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Delegates will be able to discuss the epidemiological evidence around the divergence in public health approaches to hazardous sleeping environments;
Objective 2: Delegates will be able to describe the impact public health approaches may have on international SIDS rates;
Objective 3: Delegates will be able to discuss the epidemiological evidence surrounding the promotion of dummy use.
