SIDS: Reducing The Risk

What are the contributing factors (if known)? How can a person know if their child is predisposed to SIDS? or can anyone tell this information? Thanks for the help you've already given!! Mayj :-)

Though I wonder about the accuracy of information in some sites. This is an excellent site, the information is well presented and the text is co- herent. Other sites could use a course on English writing! Thank you for making this information available! Happy Thanksgiving! David

Comments : I lost my precious baby girl the morning of Sunday Feb.11th 1996. We buried her on feb.15. My heart will always miss her and wonder what she would be like today. I am already trying to cope with the coming holidays. I found her in her crib as she died. I was the last to hold her on the day we buried her and I layed her into her little angel vessel. It has been a little over 9 months and I still think of her all the time. Sometimes I feel she is with me on my journey through this life. I have tried with all my might to spread the word about SIDS but it seems there is nobody who wants to listen or even think about the tragedy of loosing a baby to SIDS. If I have only 1 wish in this life it would be to know that somebody somewhere found the cure or solution to SIDS. Not only for me but for all the moms and dads and familys and friends who have experienced the same pain that I have this past year. I live life a little different than before she died, Im more compassionate to others who have experienced a loss. I pray harder, love deeper and never take a single moment for granted. I miss her with every sence of my being, my sence of smell, my sight, my hearing, my sence of touch for I will never kiss her sweet forehead again. Please join me in the personal crusade to spread the word about SIDS and the need for more research to end Sudden Infant Death. Little did I know before her death that she was an angel sent to me to teach her lesson, I had forgotten to look for her wings! My heart aches to see you and smell you and touch you again. I love you with everything I am sweet baby, Happy Holidays! love forever, mom!

Comments : Hello, I live in Lords Valley, PA. I am 18 and a volunteer EMT/firefighter with a local company. I had a 5-month old patient about a year ago that was not breathing upon our arrival at the scene. We did CPR the entire way to the hospital but the beautiful baby girl never came to. The ER staff worked on her for about an our before pronouncing her. Her death was ruled SIDS a few days later. This event killed me. I think a part of me died with that little girl. I remember praying to God to take the life out of me and tranfer it into this beutiful baby with every compression I did. It was no use. I cried for weeks over this and still do occasionally. I read about your website in JEMS magazine and decided to take a look in an attempt to better understand what took such an innocent life. Your site is excellent and should be more publicized. It helped me sort through some emotions that I have a very hard time thinking about. Thank you! Sincerely, John P. Heck, Firefighter/EMT

I would love to make contact with SIDS parents living near the Mississippi Gulf Coast or just talk to others. I am new on the Internet and don't know how to reply to other people's messages I read in the guestbook. Standard (Pass Christian), Mississippi. My husband and I lost Maggie Clare Arcement 4 months ago to SIDS. She is our second child and died at two months 6 days old. She was a beautiful, very healthy (15 lbs.), breastfed baby! We are still reeling from the shock of it all, the holidays are looming upon us, the world keeps going on - we hurt so bad. I hurt so bad. Yesterday, we found out we are expecting another baby, which we both wanted very badly, but we are scared to death. No SIDS support groups in my area, Help!

Comments : Request for Stories,Poems and letters about SIDS Experiences by African American Sids Survivors . I recently lost my daughter A'dream, May 7th 1996 to SIDS. I want to combine a book of memories of African American Babies whose lives have ended suddenly and unexpectedly. I participate in many SIDS Functions and only get to se a hand full of African Americans. This troubles me because I know that our babies are also victims of SIDS and those parents are out there hurting too. I have decided to write a book that will contain the many special memories of our African American SIDS babies in memory of A'dream. I want this book to send a clear message to the community that it is inappropriate to avoid teaching people about SIDS and ways to reduce the risk to new moms. If you are an African American SIDS parent, or any parent who has lost a baby, PLEASE forward your experiences to the following address A'Dream Memories 10209 Ridgefield Drive Indpls, IN 46236 Thank you so much

Comments : Hi, I live in Halifax NS Canada. I just read a newspaper article that i thought some of you may be interested it. A man by the name of John Dennis, from Ontario, left Saturday, November 23 for a 150 nonstop round the world trip on a sailboat in order to raise money for SIDS. He has already mortgaged his home to raise $75,000 to charter the boat and another $125,000 to upgrade it. He is offering people to "purchase one nauticle mile" of his voyage for $25.00 (CAN) and you will receive a certificate for it. If anyone is interested you can call the Canadian chapter of the SIDS Foundattion at (905)471-4554. I don't know this man at all but this trip I thought may help some parents know that people, who are not directly affected by SIDS (his children were born premature, but did not sucumb to SIDS) still care and want to do something about this awful disease! Thank you.

They believe this is a possible cause of SIDS. It's still scary, but we feel very fortunate to have an alarm sound everytime she stops breathing. We were just trying to find out more information on these subjects. Our hearts go out to all those who have lost their children. God Bless You!

He alsways slept on his back, died while sleeping on his back. We miss and love him so much. We were very lucky and we were adopted again. We have a new son, 10 months old. We would appreciate hearing from other SIDS parents with subsequent children for words of comfort. Family bed? No family bed? It's all so confusing. Thanks very much.

A local SIDS support group in Akron helped me get through that period in my life, and I've been interested in keeping up on SIDS research. Especially because I have a new son (now 21-months old too - that's scary) with my new wife (my first left me after Scott died). I'm sure this is more than you care to know, forgive a father who still misses his son.

She says "Jane has seen an obvious gap in information that is available for parents who make the decision to have another baby after the death of an infant. She has tackled the issues from a personal as well as a professional perspective. She has captured well the fears and concerns that every bereaved parent feels as they make what is for them the difficult journey from conception, through pregnancy, delivery, and the new baby's arrival at home, It is a book I would highly recommend to all parents who must make this decision after the death of a baby." Enquiries about how to obtain it can be directed to Regards Jane Warland

Even though I have 13 other grandchildren, there will never be anyone else to take her place. A grandparent grieves twice when a baby dies of SIDS...They grieve for the baby, and they grieve for their own child.

Feels like all our hopes and dreams were taken away that day too. Having difficulty in dealing with the grief and living without her. How do you plan for a new baby without dwelling on Hannah's fate? Looking for other parents who have gone through similar circumstances for support. p8med@gbso.net

Comments : Having lost a little boy some six years ago I quite obviously have taken an interest by way of corporate and personal contributions towards the further study of the contributing factors to this tragedy which as we all know, has no social barriers. The one point I would make is this, our little baby will always remain ourt little baby, we will never know him as anything else, thus the memory will always be there. His brothers, all of whom came along later, know him, and fortunately, ask questions of him - and it's great.
