Question ID: 517783
Parents are cautioned not to prop infant bottles because it can lead to choking, aspiration. I need to know how many infants have died, or visited ER, needed medical care etc associated with propping a baby bottle. I would like world wide information, but national stats would be good.

Hi, one problem with any statistics on this will be that very "soft". We are talking about infant deaths at home, and there aren't many parents or child carers that are going to admit that they suspect that bottle propping was the cause of death, and police and coroners will also have trouble identifying it. Yes, there are sites that mention cases. Search with: "infant mortality" bottle propped But a great many of the hits have nothing to do with your question. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/infmort.htm This site gives lots of statistics and links, but doesn't mention this cause of death, included in the 31 % "residue" of "other causes" after the nine defined causes.
