There is some evidence to suggest that there may be a link between SIDS and family history.
For example, studies have shown that infants with a family history of SIDS are at increased risk for the condition.
However, it is important to note that the majority of infants who die from SIDS do not have a family history of the condition.
It is also important to note that the risk of SIDS can be greatly reduced by following safe sleep practices, such as placing infants on their backs to sleep, using a firm and flat sleep surface, and keeping the sleep environment free of soft objects and loose bedding.
It is also recommended that infants sleep in the same room as their parents, but not in the same bed, to reduce the risk of SIDS.
