1. Parents share information and answer frequently asked questions about SIDS

We post a Question of the Month to the SIDS List Server Discussion Area and on the SIDS Information Web Site http://sids-network.org/faqparents.htm. Responses can be emailed to us at sidsnet1-at-sids-network-dot-org or posted to the SIDS List Server Discussion Area. We will then post the responses to this area of the web site. The responses are opinions and no one person is right or wrong. We do not need to include an individual's name or any other identifying factors unless the author requests to be identified in some way or they want their email address attached.

The questions for this period are:

bullet How has a SIDS death changed your parenting style?
bullet What insensitive or hurtful comments have been made to you since your baby's death and how did you handle them?

2. April SIDS Alliance Conference

Information about the April SIDS conference is available on the SIDS Alliance web page at:

"The dates are April 9-11 with pre-conference workshops on April 8th. Those of us on the conference planning committee are really excited about how the program is shaping up. We have some wonderful sessions planned. The conference brochure and registration form should be available in late December or early January. You can call the Alliance at 1-800-221-7437 to get on the mailing list to receive a copy."

"I'm looking forward to meeting many of you here in Atlanta at the conference."
