New research has just found a major breakthrough to understanding sudden infant death syndrome.
Australian researchers have connected SIDS to low levels of a brain protein which regulates sleep arousal.
The researchers have found evidence that babies who die from SIDS have low levels of orexin, a brain protein that regulates sleep arousal, according to the telegraph UK.
