We are dealing with his passing and are trying to understand why; but by far the toughest part for us is dealing with our 5 year-old son Liam and how losing his baby brother affects him. There was no greater joy in our lives than watching our two sons interact with each other. The support we recieved and continue to recieve from family, friends and strangers alike has been greatly appreciated. He will be loved and truly missed until our dying days. May he rest in peace with the angels.

The reason why I chose SIDS was because my brother Dimitrios died of SIDS when he was 2 months old, and I really want to know what it would be like with him. Also I want to help find a cure when I am older if one isn't found.

Comments: Our son Nicholas Robert Vollbrecht was born on August 12, 1997 and died on August 27, 1997. He was 8 lbs, 14 oz. at birth and completely healthy. He was a happy, fun baby who smiled a lot from the day he was born. On Wednesday, August 27, 1997, while Mara nursed him, Nicky went into a "collapse" (that's the term the doctors use -- sometimes they call it a "SIDS episode"). He stopped breathing and his heart stopped pumping. Mara began CPR within one and a half to two minutes of not being able to wake him up. The paramedics took over within minutes. Somehow the doctors at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, Minnesota got his heart started again. However, Nicky never breathed on his own again. After being transferred to Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, Nicky died between 6:00 p.m and 8:00 p.m. that evening. He never breathed on his own again and his heart ultimately failed and he died. Nicky's older sister Colleen misses him as do his parents.

Comments: I lost my niece, Lauryn Alexa 4 months ago today. She was only 4 months and 10 days old when she died of SIDS. I don't know if I'll ever really understand why and how. But I do know that a lot of people sure do miss her. I miss her soooo very much. I was fortunate enough to spend a few months with her prior to her passing away. My sister and my brother-in-law were kind enough to let me take care of her. Those are moments that I'll never forget. When I think of Lauryn, I can't help but smile. I remember the way she smiled at me when I gave her a bath or fed her a bottle. I remember the way her hair smelled and the cute outfits she wore. I remember how she used to suck her thumb and her hand. I remember the adorable looks on her face especially when she does that thing with her eyebrows! She has the most beautiful face. She has the most perfect parents. Sometimes I feel so angry. I think it's not fair that two perfect people who would do anything for anyone and even more for people they love should have such a horrible thing happen to them. But I just have to continue having faith and I say to myself that there's a reason for everything. But it does NOT take away the pain. Lauryn was the sweetest most gentle baby. I will never forget her. She has my sister's adorable smile and spunkiness. She has my brother-in-law's gentle loving eyes. Thank you both for letting me be a part of her life. I miss her very much. I will never forget her. I'm very glad this site exists. Thanks for letting me vent.

I would suggest reading some of J.J. McKenna's research on co-sleeping and SIDS. Your readers need to be informed of ALL pertinent research!

Comments: I am very touched by this web site. I am pretty new to Internet but I am surfing and learning day by day reading everything I come across. From a personal point of view, I feel so deeply for all those who have lost an infant to SIDS. I myself have four children, the youngest being 9 mths old. It is every mother's worst fear to have her baby just die in its sleep. I have always been one to constantly check my baby when it sleeps and the fear has always plagued me leading to occasional nightmares. I do believe that one day we'll find out what really causes SIDS. My wholehearted approval goes to those who are still researching on this subject. Warmest regards, Karen Alinejad

It has been almost 4 whole months since our baby went up to Heaven & you know, we still miss her so so VERY much!!! We're very lucky to have such a close & very strong network of family & friends who have supported us unconditionally throughout these past few months. Our love & thanks go out to everyone of you. Our beautiful & fond memories of Lauryn will live on through eternity & our love for her will never ever die! Our 5 year old, Ryan, kisses his Lauryn Angel every night before he goes to bed. (It's a sterling silver Angel holding a kite with beautiful gemstones in it---given to him by his older cousin, Alanna in Cleve., Ohio) Our thoughts & prayers continue each & every day to all of us who have lost our beloved babies--- STRENGTH is what we pray for! May we all find Peace, Joy, Love, Happiness & Strength in the future! "It could only get better!!!" Thanks for Listening! *** Roel & Lilian *** "We love you Miss Magoo always & forever!!!"
