Sudden unexpected infant death (SUID), which includes SIDS, claims the lives of more than 3,000 babies each year in the U.S. alone.*
If you're wondering just how common SIDS is in the UK, statistics show SIDS is very rare in the UK. Based on data from 2015, the rate of SIDS is 0.27 deaths per 1,000 live births in England and Wales. This may still sound alarming, but it means only 0.027 percent of babies are victims of SIDS.
Owlet believes that no baby should die unexpectedly in their sleep and that's why we are raising awareness and critical funds for SIDS research in honor of SIDS Awareness Month.
Thirty years ago, Dr. Carmel Harrington of Australia lost her son to SIDS and she's dedicated her career to finding answers.
Last year, Dr. Harrington made a breakthrough by identifying a common biomarker in babies who died from SIDS. This finding means that for the first time, there is the possibility of identifying SIDS-vulnerable babies. The next phase of her team's research is more important than ever.
