Dummies and unexpected death
Active babies on their front drive forward relentlessly; turned
turtle they move little. Asleep and guided by clothing a baby may twist
his head at the end of the cot, damaging the neck or burying his face.
Heat and illness make for restlessness; dummies pacify. Could this be a
reason for the interesting association of De Kun Li and his colleasgues?
Or are parents more readily roused by a cry from a normally quiet baby?
