This course deals primarily with the unexpected death of babies – something you need to be aware of in an early years setting. Some sudden and unexpected deaths can be explained by the post-mortem examination revealing, for example, an unforeseen infection or metabolic disorder. Deaths that remain unexplained after the post-mortem are usually registered as SIDS or SUDC

The course will ensure you know what SIDS is, what might cause SIDS, and which children are most at risk. It will also cover different sleep positions to ensure the babies in your care sleep as safely as possible.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To know what Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is
  2. To know what might cause SIDS and who is at risk
  3. To be aware of different sleep positions
  4. To know the risks of co-sleeping
  5. To understand the importance of room temperature

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.
