Healthy babies suddenly die without any warnings, leaving many mothers feeling hurt. This occurs in 2 to 6 months in infants who abnormalities, medically known as “sudden infant death syndrome”, commonly known as “cradle death.” The following are recent studies found by experts related incentives.
Infant “cradle death” incentive
1, antigen allergy
A “cradle of death” can occur as a result of a contact-specific reaction of one or several antigens, such as milk, dust, polyester gas, insects, etc., or a potential immunodeficiency defect in the infant.
2, esophageal reflux
Neonatal esophageal lower gastric cardia sphincter connected with the stomach, the function is not perfect. One-time eating too much pressure in the stomach, the food reflux esophagus, causing vagal reflex caused by breathing and bradycardia, and induced laryngeal spasm asphyxiation death.
3, metabolic disorders
A variety of factors lead to abnormal hepatic glycogen metabolism, hepatic reduction of ethylene propyl linolenic acid, affecting respiratory regulation; body vitamin B1 deficiency, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine surge and other metabolic disorders, can induce sudden death.
4, upper respiratory tract obstruction
Due to respiratory infections, or due to excessive nasal secretions and viscous, soft palate slanting, tongue drooping, mandibular greater mobility and other reasons, resulting in airway obstruction, apnea death.
5, autonomic dysfunction
Various causes of autonomic dysfunction, leading to hypoxia stress response in the body, in the airway obstruction or other causes of hypoxemia, can not cry for help, eventually leading to brain cell damage and the occurrence of Hypercapnia and increased pulmonary hypertension accelerated death.
6, drug poisoning hazards
The mother smoked during pregnancy or passive smoking, perinatal complications occurred; infant sleep closed and passive smoking too much, but also the cause of sudden death.
7, genetic factors
Due to dominant chromosomal, arrhythmic death. However, such sudden death have a family history of arrhythmia.

Signs that your baby may overheat include sweating, damp hair, prickly heat, shortness of breath, difficulty sleeping, fever, and more.
