SIDS and Sleeping Position, a Systematic Review

In this systematic review, multiple scholar articles were examined to see what risk factors might predict sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS. Half of the sources argue that prone sleeping, or sleeping on the stomach, is the greatest risk factor for SIDS. On the other hand, other articles found that supine sleeping, or sleeping on the back, can be harmful for infants who were prematurely born. The conclusion sums up the findings and also touches on risk factors that could be studied in the future.
