Comments: I have been a Law Enforcement Officer for 11 years. Having completed an in-service course on Death and Related Cases months prior to the birth of my first son, which was inclusive of information on SIDS, I have had an accute fear of SIDS.

I am now the proud father of four children and recall waking up in the middle of the night and grabbing my kids (usually scaring them) because on this intense fear. Each of my children endured this over their first year of their lives, because the class information given was that SIDS did not occure after the age of one. I considder myself blessed that I escaped this tragedy. However, on Wednesday 9-25-96, my cousin was not so lucky, losing her only child, an 8 month old boy to SIDS.

Saturday I will escort Christopher's funeral. I find myself at a loss as to what could be said to someone who has lost a child this way or any other way, for that matter. I can only say that, as I went about my duties Thursday and today, I found myself peering into every vehicle that passed containing a car seat, looked at each parent in a different light. Thinking of how for the past 11 years, I visualized in preparation how I would handle all types of disasters, and at the same time realizing that I could never prepare myself for the loss of a child. My prayers and thoughts are with those of you who have had to endure such a tragedy, and pray that those of us that havent never will. To those who have endured, you have my most sincere admiration for your courage and strenght. I write this in support of those who have either experienced SIDS directly or indirectly, and to encourage those who havent to educate themselves.

Comments: My third daughter Catherine died of SIDS on February 20, 1996. She was 17 months old and I had done everything possible to prevent this type of thing. She was born a very healthy 8 lbs. 11 oZ. and developed normally. I breast fed her and I don't smoke. When I found her she was sleeping on her stomach but at 17 months you cannot control how your child sleeps. We are obviously devestated by losing Catherine but have decided to try and have another child which is a big step for us as my husband had just had a vasectomy before Catherine died. I know it will be a scary experience being pregnant and carrying for a little baby again but I feel this is something that we have to do not only for us for for our other children to help in the healing process. Good luck to other SIDS parents in learning to live with your loss.

We are more than 4 years down the road and have a subsequent 2 year old girl named Hanna. She has been a God send to us. Sure it was hard her first year but the joy she has brought us has surpassed the pain we had suffered. Hanna is born 2 years and 10 days after her brother, Casey. Since they are both born in December, she helps ease the pain we have at Casey's birthday. I am a peer support for the State in the San Gabriel Valley area of Southern California. You may contact me if you wish.

When he died,1 day short of 4 months old,he was 35 inches long.I don't remember his weight,but he was never a fat baby. He was just starting to sit up by himself. The day he died,my wife and I had just dropped him off at my sisters house,she was baby-sitting. This was his first time alone away from us. He was happy,smiling.He had just finished his bottle on the way there. When we left we had never guessed it would be the last time we would see him smile. We weren't at the bowling alley more than a 1/2 hour when we got a call telling us to get to the hospital right away. This is so far the worst thing ever to happen to me in my entire life.

I don't have any great words of advice, but, I can tell parents who have had a SIDS baby and are scared to have more children...I am not going to lie to you and tell you that is is easy, but,it brings such joy back into your life. We now look forward to sharing Paige's story with her little brother Carson. He looks at her picture and says "baby" I quess she will always be a baby to him. Our older daughter speaks of Paige often and I know she is a better person for knowing our beautiful angel. Please hang in there folks, there is life after a dealth of a child, it will not ever be the same, but you will smile again and feel love in your broken heart. God Bless...Sonya Schultz

Comments: I'm a biochemistry and biotechnology student hoping to attend med school in two years. I am currently volunteering for the Canadian Paediatric Society to write a Canadian procedure to follow in the event of a SIDS death. It should include information of death scene investigation, medical history assessment and autopsy protocol. If anyone thinks they have any information that would benefit my report, please contact me. Thanks.

Comments: We are a couple of nurses in the Emergency Department that are involved in the counselling of parents and families of SIDS children presenting to our hospital. We recently attended the SIDS conference (for professionals involved in SIDS cases) in August, 1996, in Melbourne, Australia. It was of enourmous benefit for us as we learnt of this Web Site then and we are extremely excited about the support that numerous individuals can receive from this resource. Unfortunately we are not permitted to give you our homepage address at this stage, however we will jump into the site to check out the information you have for us.

Comments: Bellefonte, PA. We are expecting our first child 11/21/96 and we just wanted to find out some information to help us prevent SIDS from happening to our first born. We were pregnant with twins and lost one very early in the pregnancy (aproximately 1 1/2 months along) There was really no reason for the loss of that baby but we just hope that everything will be okay with this child. Our hearts go out to all of you that have lost a child or children to SIDS after being able to hold your child and meet it. We didn't get the chance to meet our other child but we will some day. We know it is in good hands.

Comments: I am located in Springfield Virginia. I am here on this site tonight because my nine month granddaughter was delivered tonight at one week short of her expected date of delivery stillborn. I am hurting and looking for answers. My son took his wife to Prince William Hospital in Manassas Virginia at 8 this morning because she was in a great deal of pain and sick. Three hours later she was allowed to leave and told that she would probably be back within 24 hours to deliver the baby because all of the babies vital signs were fine. Within two hours they returned to Prince william Hospital in Manassas Virginia because the mom was very sick, throwing up and in a great deal of pain. When they were seen by hospital personnel the baby had no heartbeat. This was at 2 pm. When she delivered a beautiful 7# 3oz baby girl at 10:30 pm, well developed but dead, they explained that they theorized that the placenta had torn loose from the uterus and the baby had died from oxigen deprevation. What a terrible tragedy that a healthy beautiful child should have not had the opportunity to enter this world alive. We can't help but feel that something else could have been done to save this child and spared these young parents the terrible pain of this tragic loss. If you have any thoughts or similar experiences that may help me to help my son and daughter in law cope with this please write me at 8605 Eagle Glen "Terrace, Fairfax Station, VA 22039 as I have no email address. Thanks for your help and I know that you understand how I we feel right now or you would not be on this page. Thanks for your patience as this is my way of coping right now. God bless you.

Comments: We live in Cincinnati and we lost a baby to SIDS 2 years ago. His name was Austin. He was born 8 weeks early, but healthy as could be. He gained enough weight to come home from the hospital at four weeks and died at 6 weeks with no explaination as to why. We are trying again now to have another but I just missed carried yesterday. We still have our hopes up that we will have a healthy baby by this time next year. My heart goes out to anyone who has just suffered this loss it was and still is the worst thing to go through. But it has gotten better over time. I haven't seen much of your page yet but I like it so far. Let us know if we can be of assistance. Sincerely, Julie & Mark.

Comments: I am currently a pre-med student attending Tulsa Community College in Oklahoma. I have chosen the topic of SIDS for a research paper because my wife and I lost our three-month-old son this March due to a traumatic injury that doctors have not been able to difinitively diagnose as SIDS. As I search for information, I hope to gain a greater understanding of how traumatic injuries are related to this affliction. My deepest sympaties are with all who may find themselves or loved ones in this terrible situation.

I have not found the words to describe what it feels like to have life and all its meaning shattered like this, with no hope getting much better soon. This site, the guestbook entries, and conversations we've had with others as a result, has been a lifesaver. We welcome mail. In Abby's memory we WILL survive, we WILL have her brother(s) and sister(s0 and be happy again some day.
