嬰兒猝死症（SIDS）是指剛出生到一歲的嬰兒在睡眠時突然死亡，死亡原因無法從病史、身體檢查來解釋。最近研究發現，嬰兒猝死症的原因與嬰兒的年齡有關，年紀較大的寶寶主要是與父母同睡造成，年齡較小的孩子則是因為嬰兒床內有其他雜物而導致憾事發生。 此研究由國家兒童醫學中心（Children’s National Medical Center）蒙瑞秋博士所領導，她強調家中若有不足四個月大的嬰兒，與父母同睡時千萬要注意，另外家長也要當心，確保嬰兒睡覺時周圍沒有其他東西，如枕頭或玩具。 這項研究調查 2004~2012 年間 8,000 例因睡眠導致的嬰兒猝死症，其中有接近 70%的猝死發生在與父母同睡時，另外有 1/3 與嬰兒床上的物品有關。研究發現，未滿四個月的嬰兒最可能猝死的原因是與父母同床睡，主要是因為當其他人在床上移動時，這些嬰兒沒有能力改變自己的頭或姿勢避免窒息。 對於四個月到一歲的小孩，枕頭、毛毯或填充玩具等「床伴」則具有危險性，若家長一不留神，這些柔軟的物品可能會壓到寶寶的身上或臉上，增加嬰兒猝死症的發生，因此研究學者建議嬰兒床上除了寶寶外，不要放置任何東西。另外嬰兒長大一點後開始會自行翻身時也要注意，醫療專家提醒家長最好讓嬰兒採仰睡睡姿，並且盡量不要跟寶寶同床。
