  1. Is the use of dummy or carry-cot of importance for sudden infant death ?

    Article - En anglais

    The study was undertaken to test the significance of dummy use and carry-cots for counts of sudden infant death (SID).

    Based on the impression that very few SID victims have a dummy (comforter, pacifier) in their mouth at the time of death, and that a high proportion of SID babies were found dead in a carry-cot (portable crib, pram), a case-control study was performed.

    Questionnaires were sent to 167 parents of SID victims and to 352 parents of live-infants matched for sex and time of birth.

    Questionnaires were returned by 121 parents of SID victims (73%) and 307 parents of controls (87%). Only 4 SID victims (3%) were found dead with a dummy in their mouth.

    A quarter of the controls always used a dummy, 24% during night-time and 23% during daytime between 0 and 2 months of age, whereas this was only true for 10% in the SID group, the odds ratios being 0.27 for night-time and 0.36 for daytime.

    This trend was also seen until I year of life.

    Of the SID victims, 48% were found dead in a carry-cot, 79% during the cold time of the year and two thirds outdoors.

    Most deaths occurred during the afternoon (12 pm-5 pm).

    In both SID and control groups daytime use of carry-cots was equally frequent.

    Approximately 40% in both groups slept in such a cot between 5-7 days a week during the daytime.

    Conclusion The use of dummy could be a favourable factor in the prevention of SID. (...)
