Infant death project proposal

Would someone like to take on making a project for profiles who died as Infants?

There are quite a few of them out there, and many just go unnoticed with names like Unknown Daughter or Infant Son. These profiles sometimes cause confusion with a single date or no dates. I think it would be helpful if there were a stylized profile for them, and a tag to show they died as an infant. They could also be protected so that others won't try to change them into someone else without proof.

I don't have the time to manage a project, but I would be happy to join it once it is create, and tag any that I find.

I have a pediatric Death here. Do we put in the infant project or is there a pediatric death project. She died at 4 so not really a infant.

A  tag like that would be great. I have quite a few who have siblings named over them.

We have an umbrella category [[Category:Infant_Mortality]] with some sub Canadian locations already for ages 5 and under.

I think we should also encourage people to make clear in the biographies that these people died as babies and are not duplicates.
