Aim: to evaluate certain caring behaviors associated with the onset of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Methods: a telephone questionnaire was administered between May and July 2017 to a sample of 1055 Sicilian mothers within 30 days of delivery. A multivariate logistic analysis was conducted considering outcome variables: the sleeping position of the children, exclusive breastfeeding and passive smoking. Results: 62% of the participants place their children in the supine position, 37.9% practice exclusive breastfeeding and 89.0% are not smokers. Being aged < 32 years, having a low level of education and limited economic resources are risk factors for the non-supine positioning of children during sleep. A low level of education, primiparity, non-participation to an antenatal course expose mothers to a greater risk of not practicing exclusive breastfeeding at one month. Postpartum smoking is positively associated with a low level of education. Conclusions: the assessment of the main caring behaviors towards newborns and infants is essential for an effective campaign for reducing the risk of SIDS.

Abstract

Aim: to evaluate certain caring behaviors associated with the onset of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Methods: a telephone questionnaire was administered between May and July 2017 to a sample of 1055 Sicilian mothers within 30 days of delivery. A multivariate logistic analysis was conducted considering outcome variables: the sleeping position of the children, exclusive breastfeeding and passive smoking. Results: 62% of the participants place their children in the supine position, 37.9% practice exclusive breastfeeding and 89.0% are not smokers. Being aged < 32 years, having a low level of education and limited economic resources are risk factors for the non-supine positioning of children during sleep. A low level of education, primiparity, non-participation to an antenatal course expose mothers to a greater risk of not practicing exclusive breastfeeding at one month. Postpartum smoking is positively associated with a low level of education. Conclusions: the assessment of the main caring behaviors towards newborns and infants is essential for an effective campaign for reducing the risk of SIDS.
