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.

Key words: Performance, Prevention, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
