Crib death 4% likelier over the weekend

"The largest ever study of its kind has found that cot deaths peak at weekends. University of Aberdeen researchers looked at about 13,000 cot deaths which occurred between 1986 and 1998... The researchers analysed the number and timing of deaths attributable to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), or cot death, from national statistics for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland... A spokesman for the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths said: 'It has long been known that sudden unexpected infant deaths are more likely to occur at weekends than weekdays. There is speculation as to why that may be, but no evidence-based answers.'"
