Comments: In 1994 i became pregnant with my 1st child. After 23 weeks of pregnancy and 3 dreadful weeks in the hospital, I gave birth to my son. He was born 1lb, 5oz and he lived for a little less than 2 hours. I just celebrated his 3rd birthday on 9/22. Last oct. i gave birth to my second child and he will be celebrating his 1st bithday in 11 days. I can never get over the loss of my son, my 1st born.... And I probably never will.

Comments: We lost a baby 19 months ago, the dr. handled everything so badly both my husband and I were diagnosed PTSD anxiety/depression shortly after. We never could work through it and a month ago my husband left, one of the last things he said was when I see her I should tell her her daddy did love her. Thats all he has ever said on the subject. He said he needed time its been a month and I have not heard a word from him. Now his grandmother had the phone shut off so he couldn't reach me if he wanted too. I got through 4 suicide atttempts but do not know how much more I can take. They have tried to keep me pretty well medicated but the last antidepressive they tried was toxic for me And since she was never born people tell me to forget she was never real.

Comments: Our child died at 3 months old of SIDS. That was 27 years ago and it has affected our lifes. It is still very strong in our minds. We watch the news on health and they come up with all different causes of SIDS but have never really known what causes it. What we have decided though is that "The Lord doesn't have to have a reason to take one of his children home." I am interested in any updates or information on this subject.

Comments: I lost my daughter to SIDS ten months ago. I was looking for some more information on SIDS. I miss her greatly, and still feel as if I am to blame in some way. I can not stop thinking about her. I feel like my whole life is built around remembering her. I was 19 when I got pregenant. I was 20 when I had her. I was prepared for being a young mother. No one ever prepared me for losing her. She touched my life in a way I will never forget. I just wish she could have stayed longer. I feel so lost and out of control with her gone. There are mornings where I do not want to get out of bed. There are nights when I can not sleep. I do not think Cameron and I have had a normal relationship since. The day Alaura died I had done a lot of running around. My mother watched her for an hour in the morning, then later that night my sister watched her so Cameron and I could go out. Cameron and I were out till about eleven o'clock. We were at a friends house and my sister droped her off with us. We were two blocks from home. We arrived home about one. Cameron made her bottle while I changed her. Camerons mom plyed with her and offerd to keep Alaura in her room for the night.(We declined.)I had started to feed Alaura, but was so tired I could barely stay awake. Cameron took over from there. Jody went to bed and Cameron and I stayed downstairs on the couch. The last thing I remember is sitting up watching t.v. Cameron said he fed her changed her again and then layed down on the couch. I guess I was still sitting up. Cam says they layed down at 2:15. I then awoke at 5:30 startled because Alaura had not woken up to eat. I will never forget that morning or what followed. I could not find my daughter because she had slipped to the side of Cameron. She was sleeping on his chest. I screamed for Cameron asked him where she was he said right here we picked her up and she was LIFELESS. I did nothing but scream. Jody came downstairs and I called 911. That was all I could do. I was so histerical I could not even give my daughter CPR. My daughter was blue as could be. The paramedics came sent us out of the room and a few hours later told us our daughter was dead. Alaura had died several minutes after falling asleep. Cameron and I had slept with her the whole night not knowing she was dead. Cameron feels worst of all because she was laying on his chest the whole night. I am not sure why I just wrote all of this for everybody to read, but I did. I think I just want other people to know they are not alone and we all probably think our situation is worse than the next persons, but the truth is we are all in the same boat. We may never know why our children died. I miss you Alaura Dayne Perry.

I had a misscarriage in june too, at that time I was also in the 8th week, and I'm starting to wonder if there's anything wrong with me. I can't imagine I should dare to try to get pregnant again.

Comments: My twin sister Stephanie lost her 7 1/2 month old daughter Amanda 2 years ago (my namesake). She has not dealt with her loss much until now and is interested in attending some SIDS conferences. She can't afford the one in TX, but could afford the statewide conference in CA in OCT(She could stay with our brother). The problem is that she needs help (only a little) with expenses. Please call me at (406) 585-7163 (MT, where I live) if you can help. I would love to see her be able to attend. Not all SIDS parents are well off, but they all hurt the same and Stephanie needs to share with others. Wyoming currently DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING LIKE THIS IN WY. Stephanie was and is a great mother - she did not smoke, drink (AND BARELY SWORE!) during her pregnancy. All of our hearts are broken without our little "Manda Moo". Please call if you can help.

Comments: We are just furious over the media attention to the abuse being the cause of SIDS deaths!!!!! We were looking the the National Alliances thoughts on the matter and found them. We lost our first born, Kyle Justin Eason, March 27, 1991 when he was 14 weeks old. We lived in Phoenix, AZ at the time and he was at the babysitter's while we both worked. This abuse angle has hurt a lot. I feel like people that know Kyle died of SIDS are thinking that we or the babysitters abused him. We KNOW that is not true! I want the TV stations, newpapers, etc. that have talked about the abuse study, to publish the real story.

Comments: I was reading the information about MA General Hospital, the new book that's being published, and the research of co-investigator Dr. Truman. I have served with Dr. Truman on a committee that reviews infant deaths. Despite the publicity and controversy that seems to surround the study, I know he is sympathetic to the parents of infants who die of SIDS. It does seem as if the media has referred to SIDS when it means apnea (based on reading the articles on your web site). I thought that was a good point made by Dana in the 9/12/97 posting (there is no so thing as near-SIDS). I experienced severe child abuse, including sexual abuse, and I know how painful the publicity surrounding "false memory syndrome" was to me. I am sure some people do "make up" stories of childhood abuse or are influenced to make them up but it probably doesn't compare to the numbers who actually experience it. It is because of this history of abuse, however, that makes me aware that parents are capable of homicide, even in the first few months of life. It is a shame that these people cause suspicion to be cast on the majority of loving parents who go through the horror of SIDS. I believe Dr. Truman is sincere and bases his conclusions on valid research but I am sorry for the pain the book publicity (and the unfortunate title) has caused all the loving parents who are part of your network.

Comments: Today is September 18th, we celebrated my son's birthday August 16th, he would've been two. Daniel Scott passed away on March 27, 1997 to SIDS at 19 months old. My husband Michael and I, family and friends were devasted. There were no signs or warnings or was there. Daniel was very healthy, happy and very loved. On that night he woke up at midnight and played in his crib, he carried on the sweetest conversation with someone in baby talk pausing during each phrase and his third and final phrase trailing off in almost a question like tone. I was in the same room with him at my sister's house in KC, MO. we were in the process of transferring from Topeka, KS. So I was amazed at his playful mood at midnight and as equally taken back with his baby like conversation. I had never heard him carry on in this manner and I remember being in awe of it all. I didn't know what he was saying or who he was saying it to. All I know is that previous Monday the 24th Daniel in his sweet baby voice looked me and said 'I Love You' at 19 months old I was excited and I called his daddy immediately to tell him what he had said. Back to that final moment together, he proceeded to play and he wimpered and cried for me, I contemplated picking him up and rocking him back to sleep, I decided not pick him up unless he stood up, he never did. I thought his tired cry was just that a tired sort of cry and that he fell back to sleep, that was 12:30 a.m. and I found him at 6:30 a.m. lifeless. The coroner said he had passed shortly after 12:30. Sometimes, it's hard not to blame myself for not doing something like picking him up I tell myself, that his conversation that night trailed off in a question about why he had to leave so soon, about missing his mommy and asking if I would be ok and that his cries that night were for me to tell me that he would miss me too. I know where Daniel is and each day that goes by I'm that much closer to being with him again. My love to you forever Daniel - Love, mommy. P.S. for anyone who would like to talk please e-mail me at crystalglobe@msn.com If anyone who has lost a child because of SIDS listen to a 'A Baby's Prayer' from Kathy Troccoli the word's bring such comfort. God Bless.

Comments: We lost our precious Megan Nov. 9, 1993. With living in rural Ne. There are no support groups within a 100 mile radius. We try to do what we can for the Ne. foundation but that's only about 2 or 3 times a year at a gathering. I have done many projects on my own but have to go it alone. I'm looking for someone to chat with and share my feelings with. If you have the time, would you drop a line to elyl@rocketmail.com God Bless all the parents of those truly special angels!!!

I was founder and president of the Kansas SIDS Chapter for a couple of years after our baby's death. We were successful in getting the laws passed in Kansas so that all unexplained deaths of infants through the age of one year would be autopsied. We provided statewide information to all funeral directors and gave many, many personal accounts of our story to anyone and everyone who would listen. I commend you on your efforts and wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

What I see missing is some sort of defined support group, preferably on-line in some way. My loss was less than a month ago, so I have some good days, and some really terrible ones. Always looking for someone to talk to WHEN things aren't good. It doesn't help to wait til 'next Tuesday at 6'.

We went to bed last night and this morning when we got up. Our little JD wouldn't wake Up. We raced to the hospital a couple block away and there was Nothing they could do. Just say they were sorry ,and this happens. He lived to be 3 months and 4 days . Before he was taken away from us. So please say a prayer for "JD". I wish he could of met you and shared a smile cause he was always Happy and he loved everyone. Thanks , James, Sherry , Chelsey and Tristan "JD," Passed away on the 11th and was Buried on the 13th.

Comments: My son, Aaron Farrier, just passed away on Friday, September 7, 1997 while at the sitters. The Medical Examiner determined that the cause of death was aspiration due to gastric content. After speaking with his pediatrician and reading about SIDS, I am convinced that my baby died of SIDS not aspiration (although this may have happened in combination with SIDS). I have read that SIDS is not caused by aspiration even though death certificates often bear this term in error. We have yet to speak with the doctor that performed the autopsy or the detective. It has been one week since Aaron died and is very distressing for us to not have any of our questions answered.

Comments: My families nightmare started twenty five years ago on September 2nd,1972. My brothers son 'Cory' died of SIDS. Cory was 11 months old. Then last year my nephew and his wife lost their son Tanner to SIDS. Tanner was 4 1/2 months old. I have seen first hand how the death of a child affects the whole family as a group. I know the families never really recover and their precious children are in their thoughts and on their minds every minute of their existance. But I think there may be some ways we as their families can be better support for them, by listening and not hiding from their childrens deaths. I have some news to share today after finding out that my nephew and his wife are once again pregnant and waiting for the birth of their new child next March 1998. Their Son Tanner died one year ago this week, we all miss him and grieve with them and we will all share in the joy of their new child when it is born and pray that this child will be healthy and safe from SIDS.

Comments: I loss my first child at 23 weeks. I suffered from an incompent cervix. Doctors say the next time will be different, "they know the problem and will catch it earlier". But still doesn't take away my pain. I think of my son every day and often wonder how could I go on, how could anyone get through this. I often find myself staring at other expectant mothers and say "that should be me". I know my husband is suffering as well, but sometimes I feel so alone. I hope by reading the many passages on this site, I will find comfort in something so wrong. I blame myself for not recongizing the problem befor hand, I blame the doctors for not discovering, the problem. Not helping my baby live. And I often blame God for all my pain. I know deep down that God would do me no harm and will see me through my pain. But for now I have no answers and scared of what is to come. I want to have another baby as soon as I'm physically able but I know it will never take the place of my FIRST SON.

Comments: We lost our beloved, darling son on July 8, 1997. Cory was 12months/19 days old. Just wanted to sign this in his memory. We miss him so much. He was so wanted and so loved and so needed. He is the most beautiful creation we will ever know. Words cannot express the intense love we share for our son. We are forever changed. Cory was our first and only child.

Comments: I'm a 24 year old Trinidadian male who will become a father early in 1998. It is great to have found such a comprehensive resource on SIDS. I became very interested in SIDS since I heard about it and saw a few products which claim to prevent it's occurrence, and even others which clearly stated that they did not help. Keep up the Great work!!

Comments: hello, i seen your page, and wanted to say, that i watched a little baby die in my home from sids and he was not mine but it still hurt as bad, as if he was me, i just could not figure out why god would let something like this happen to this precious little baby, when he has not lived or anything, i still have probs dealing with even wheni had my little girl i was so afraid that sids would take her, or if maybe i did something wrong and god would punish me by taking my little girl, my heart goes out to all the parents and families who have lost a child to this thing, i know what they are going through! sincerly gina
