Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) Training

Training materials to teach educators and caregivers about safe sleep practices for infants to reduce the risks of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID), formerly known as SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)

The Department of Early Education and Care has developed this training for educators and caregivers to promote safe sleep practices and reduce the risks of SUID. Please note that the term "Sudden Infant Death Syndrome" or "SIDS" is no longer in use and that the proper phrase is now "Sudden Unexpected Infant Death" or SUID.
