According to the charity, 5 babies in the UK die every week from SIDS. The charity believes some of these deaths could have been prevented and provide simple steps parents can take to ensure the safety of their baby.
The Lullaby Trust aims to half the number of SIDS deaths by 2020.
SIDS is when a baby dies suddenly and there is no identifiable cause of death.
While there is no known cause for SIDS, risk factors include smoking during pregnancy and co-sleeping, according to the charity.
The Lullaby Trust works with the Department of Health and health care professionals in a bid to lower the number of infant deaths through SIDS.
In 1991, the charity launched a successful campaign, Reduce the Risk, which encouraged the campaign Back to Sleep by the Department of Health.
Since the launch of these campaigns, there has been a 70% declined in the number of babies dying from SIDS.
The Safer Sleep Week will see its 25th anniversary 14-20 March 2016.
