I still miss him very much each day but time goes on and the pain becomes not so unbearable. I have read the poems on your First Page and cried along with many other parents out there . I too wrote poems to help deal with my son's death. I think you are doing a great service to parent's and families of SIDS babies by providing a place for all of us to vent our feelings and recieve correct information about SIDS. Keep up the good work and I would enjoy hearing from anyone out there who just wants to talk I hope one day to write a book about my experience with losing a baby to SIDS and the whole journey of fighting to hold on after this tragedyoccurs. My heart and prayers go out to all of you.

Comments: I live in Ontario, Canada. My daughter Taylor is 9 1/2 weeks old now. At two weeks old, we were told that she had a heart murmour. The specialist told us that Taylor had Ventrical Membreeus Ceptal Defect ( a small hole in the heart). I almost died. He told us that it was nothing to worry about. He said that her heart was already mending itself. Regardless, I thank her guardian angels that she is alright but I am so paranoid. My partner and I do not smoke. We have taken all the precautions that we have read about. Taylor is now sleeping in her own room. I have the monitor beside me. I am breast-feeding her. She seems healthy and happy. I wish in all honasty that I wasn't so scared of SIDS. It is all I think about. I am scared to death. My heart goes out to all that have lost. I am 23 and live a good life, but I could not live without my daughter. I pray that they find a cure, or at least a cause. I need sleep, but I don't beleive that I'll sleep well until Taylor is out of the danger zone. My heart goes out to all. It felt good to get this off my chest. Thanks.

My doctor had me in the hospital for a week to make sure infection didn' set in, but after a week an infection did set in, causing me to go into labor. The umbilical cord prolapsed and Luke's oxygen supply was cut off, causing him to be born stillborn. If anyone else has experienced something like this, please email me.

Comments: Your site has helped me talk with people who have shared a similar situation. On April 23, 1997 My son, Connor, was stillborn I would like to talk with other parents who have lost a child to stillbirth. I was 40 1/2 weeks pregnant when Connor died. I am dealing with his death one day at a time, but as many of you know firsthand, having a child die is the absolute worst thing that could ever happen to you. My sister was pregnant at the same time I was. My daughter who is three doesn't understand why Aunt Tammy's baby is here and ours is not. I can't say I understand either. I have had six pregnancies. One blighted ovum (I had a D&C in the 14th week to prevent hemmorraging), two misscarriages (8weeks and 5 weeks) , one living child, and my son who was born and died in April 1997. My husband want more children badly, but we fear another outcome like Connor's. We have been through alot. I welcome any and all comments, words of encouragements, questions, etc. I need to talk to other parents right now. I feel it is the only consolation I will get right now, to know that I am not alone. Please e-mail me at woody@iah.com I look forward to hearing from you.

Having already raised two healthy daughters, I unfortunatly live once again with the fear of having an infant in the house and something happening when he sleeps. Having my son was the 3rd happiest event of my life, I once again get up several times unnecessarily during the night to check on him. Even though he has only been in our lives for one month, I could not imagine losing him to something has horrible as SIDS. I appreciate the information provided on your page.

Comments: if i never knew you, i'd be safe, yet half as real, never knowing that i could feel a love so strong and true. and i'm so grateful to you, i'd have lived my whole life through, lost forever if i never knew you. i thought our love would be so beautiful, somehow we'd make the whole world right, i never knew that fear and hurt could be so strong and that you would slip away in the night but still my heart is saying we were right. and if i never knew you, i'd have lived my whole life through, empty as the sky, never knowing why, lost forever, if i never knew you....

Comments: Hi. I'm from Bathurst in Australia. My wife co-owns a Baby Shop in Bathurst called "Little Peepers" and we sell quite a lot of Nursery Furniture and deal a lot with people concerned about sids. It's great that we can log on to sites like yours as it proves invaluable to us & we can pass information on as well. Either by printing out information on a specific topic or telling these ones how to access your web site. Many thanks once again. Michael

Comments: I am from Sibu,Sarawak, Malaysia.This is a great HP for info on SIDS. My country men and women have been worrying so much this few weeks as COXSACKIE VIRUS B has striked. The few has lost their love ones. Even our government were worried. Everyone is asking "Where this virus come from? " Eventhough this HP do not give the answer to that question. But at least now I know what is COXSACKIE VIRUS. This HP surely will benefit more people in the years to come. Keep up the excellent and honourable work. Thank you.

Comments: We are located in Dallas, Texas. We are searching for information about SIDS. We were told by the Dallas County Medical Examiner that SIDS was determined to be the cause of death, but there were other mitigating circumstances surrounding our son's death including conflicting information from the emergency room physician and the care-giver. The care-giver reported laying our 5 month old down with a bottle unattended and not checking on him for over two hours. When she checked on him, she reported that he had a blanket over his face and removing it revealed saliva and vomit on his face. He was still concious at this point and not breathing. She stated that his eyes opened but he was limp. She reported that she attempted to perform artificial respiration and that the paramedics could not revive him prior to transport. She also stated that they mentioned finding a brakial? (please excuse my spelling) heartbeat. I am not aware if there was ever an examination of the area and there was definately not an interview to get family history on my wife and I. The medical examiner stated that there was not any vomit found in the lungs and concluded that because of this he did not suffocate on vomit and further concluded it was SIDS because there was no other explanation. I believe that the saliva and vomit caused the blanket to seal over his face preventing him asperating any vomit into his lungs. We feel this was deamed to be SIDS to prevent any further issue in this matter with the care-giver. She had ten children in her care at the time, four of them infants. We were unaware of this until it was too late. This is not allowed for a state licensed care-giver in Texas, but it is not illeagal. There are only 4 state investigators to cover over 30 counties and they only issue warnings and rarely retract licenses. The only satisfaction we recieved was appearing on CBS for a special on child care and irresponsible care-givers. We just can't see any way that this could have been a case of SIDS from the information we have already recieved. We are wondering if there are many more cases like ours and if a lot of the reported SIDS cases are just undetermined cause of death. In other words, if there is no explaination for SIDS then how is it determined, or is it just a catch- all term to explain the unexplainable? Any comments or information from lay people or medical professionals would be greatly appreciated. Michael Anthony Matisi died on April 15, 1994.

Comments: Hello from Plano, Texas. I have a 10 month old little girl and I have been visiting your website scince she was born. I breastfed and co-sleep and so far so good. I realize that the recommendations to prevent SIDS are only that recommendations but NO PROMISES, NO ANSWERS. I live in fear and am so saddened for all the babies lost to this MYSTERY! I want to do something about this! I can't believe all the research that goes to support cancer and AIDS but what about these poor little ones who never get a chance at all! I am trying to write 2 books of which the sales of these will support RESEARCH FOR SIDS! I previously read on here that there are labs and research teams CLOSE TO FINDING ANSWERS but with the lack of funding their hands are tied. I NEED YOUR HELP moms and dads...i am colecting stories for a book. Detailed stories of conception, pregnancy, childbirth and becoming a parent...i have in mind essays about 1-3 pages in lenghth. If you want to share I would totally appreciate it. E-mail me with questions or mail essays/tributes to LITTLE BIRD ENTERPRISES PO BOX 868101 PLANO, TEXAS 75086 I have other ideas of organizing a walk-a thon or a stroller-a-thon...raising money to fund sids research. i would appreciate any advice from anyone who has ever planned such an event . My dream and goal in life is to be a part (if even a small one) of finding a cure for this mysterious baby stealer of a syndrome. ***michelle J.

Comments: My manager's 6 week infant just passed away today of SIDS, and I was wanting to get more info. on this. Did a net search and landed in here. This is got to be the saddest thing - to have a child snatched away from you so soon, and to know that there was almost nothing that could have been done to prevent it. In this case, the mother had just returned to work the same day, and must be going through a terrible time I'm sure. Please keep up your good efforts. God Bless!

Comments: We are in Houston,TX with a seven month old baby girl named Nicole. She has monitered since the day she was born and has severe acid reflux. We had it under control but it has started to cause problems again. We have had several true alarms and ended up in the hospital before. Our hearts go out to those who have lost their little angels. I am having a hard time dealing with my fear. Any help would be greatly appreciated from parents who are familiar with these problems. Thank you.

Comments: I lost my first pregnancy six weeks ago today. It is still very emotionally traumatic, so I thought I'd check out the Internet to see if there were others going through a similar experience, and look for medical information. I'm amazed how prevalant this problem is; I don't feel quite as alone now.

Comments: I am from Mid-Missouri. My losses were not SIDS, but miscarriages and there have been a few. However, I have six very healthy children. I noticed on your "How did you find us?" question that there is a Pregnancy and Infant loss Web page. How do I find it? I read the grief article on ten years later. It has been 12 years since the first miscarriage and six since the last. I can relate to all of the feelings expressed. I often wish that I had had the opportunity to have held my children in my arms just one time.
