Introduction: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) can cause a severe crisis for family. ‎The cause of SIDS is not known. But since putting infant in prone position, smoking mother, ‎poor prenatal care, sleeping beside infant and using soft matters and… are effective factors on ‎SIDS.‎

Objective: This study aims to survey mothers’ performance in prevention of SIDS.‎

Methods: study findings showed that most mothers (‎‏67.7%‏‎) were ‎‏20-29‏‎ years old and ‎only (‎‏9.4%‏‎) had education higher than diploma and (‎‏4.2%‏‎) studied medical sciences. ‎‎(‎‏2.1%‏‎) smoked cigarettes, (‎‏33.3%‏‎) suffered from urinary infection during pregnancy and ‎‎(‎‏95.8%‏‎) received parental care. Results indicated that ‎‏96‏‎ samples only (‎‏14.6%‏‎) had ‎satisfactory practice. In determining the relationship between mothers’ practice in prevention ‎of SIDS and personal characteristics, Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney tests were used.‎ There was a significant relationship only between mothers’ education and their practice in ‎prevention of SIDS (p<‎‏0.007‏‎).‎

Conclusion: Due to study findings, (‎‏85.4%‏‎) of mothers had unsatisfactory practice, ‎therefore planning to educate and involve mothers in proper care of infants is necessary in ‎prevention of SIDS.‎
