* Seven babies still die every week as cot deaths in the UK. 
* In 2000, 88 per cent of all sudden infant deaths in England and
Wales occurred among babies under six months of age.
* Cot death is the leading kind of death in babies over one month old
- more deaths than from meningitis, leukaemia, other forms of cancer,
household and road traffic accidents.
