Children's National's Dr. Moon Examines Social Circles' Potential Impact on SIDS

Do parents sleep in the same bed as their child because their parents did it?

What are the cultural factors that influence parents to continue behaviors that may contribute to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)?

Rachel Moon, MD, Associate Chief of the Division of General Pediatrics and Community Health at Children’s National Health System and a leader in SIDS research, is exploring these questions in a study that may help us better understand the difficulty of changing health behaviors, even when parents are aware that these behaviors may increase their baby’s chance of SIDS.
