    Out of interest does anyone know up to what age SIDs is still considered a risk factor?
    I always assumed it would be mainly for the first few months and then once they can lift their head or roll over it was no longer an issue?

    I have a related question:

    My 7 months old baby does not know how to flip over yet. Is that rare?

    SIDS also relates to overheating and not just suffocating. I think that the age is 6 months.

    Remember - babies are survivors and they will move their heads if they cant breathe. Just make sure that there are no teddies etc that can get in their way.

    I read that 90% of cases happen before the 6th month, when they don`t have as much control over their bodies.

    Does your baby sleep in a crib? Mine slept in a hammock til 6 months and I think it really inhibited his abilities to roll over since he just didn`t have the space. According to all the developmental milestone stuff I have read, however, babies should be turning over by then. But then again, each baby is different, right? If you`re concerned, I would bring your baby to the doctor for a check up about that.

    Hi

    See the below article

    Cot death (SIDS)

    which says risk descreases at 5 - 6 months. Also lots of factors involved - premature baby, smokers etc. Have a read.

    Sorchului - my baby didn't roll until about 9 months so don't worry. I remember a friend saying to me that she was certain that almost every adult can roll over so she was sure my baby would get it eventually! Of course she was right and it helped me to have some perspective. Of course, if you are concerned, see your doctor but I am sure your baby is fine.
