In 1992, after an extensive review of numerous studies throughout the world, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published recommendations that healthy infants be placed to sleep on their backs. As a result, there has been a significant reduction in the number of SIDS death in the State of Indiana and throughout the US. In response to ongoing research, AAP published a revised policy statement in 2005 outlining additional factors designed to reduce the number of infant deaths due to SIDS and unsafe sleeping environments.
