Ethnicity and the sudden infant death syndrome: anthropological perspectives.

Author information

London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University of London, UK.


Comparative data on infant caring practices among Bangladeshi and Welsh families in Cardiff, and among Maori and white families in New Zealand, reveal qualitative differences in the infant sensory environment. An anthropological perspective is adopted to place SIDS, lone infant sleeping and parent:infant co-sleeping in a broader cultural context.
