I think an apnea monitor would work. An alarm goes off if the baby stops breathing to hopefully wake the baby and alert the parents.

A baby in my family had to have one for a few months. Technology may be even better now.

It would be interesting to know if a person would grow out of it or not.

I'm thinking they would, since the odds of dying in your sleep as a baby are higher than in toddlers, older children, and adults. If this was a condition you didn't grow out of you'd think more older children would be dying from it.

Unless of course, the condition just takes most of them as babies and there's only a few left to die at older ages eventually.
