Baby Products with SIDS Prevention Claims Some baby products
are being marketed over-the-counter with claims to cure, treat,
or prevent a disease or condition. Because of these claims,
these baby products are medical devices, subject to FDA
regulation. A common medical claim
being made is the prevention of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
National Institute of Child Health and
1defines SIDS as "the
sudden death of an infant under one year of age, which remains
unexplained after a thorough case investigation, including
performance of a complete autopsy, examination of the death
scene, and review of the clinical history."
The FDA has never cleared or approved a
baby product to prevent or reduce the risk of SIDS. The
Agency is not aware of any scientific studies showing that a
medical device prevents or reduces the risk of SIDS. Click
