Frequently Asked Questions - Siblings

Siblings and parents share information and answer frequently asked questions about SIDS:

What good memory do you have of your baby brother/sister?

We post a Sibling Question to the SIDS List Server Discussion Area and on the SIDS Information Web Site every two weeks. Responses can be emailed to us at sidsnet1-at-sids-network-dot-org, attention, Jay Mihalko or posted to the SIDS List Server Discussion Area, attention, Jay Mihalko. We will then post the responses to this page 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 question for October 1997 was:

the best memory of my baby is the time we spent together at nursing
time. I think that miss that closeness the most with my baby girl aside
from missing her all together. She has a older brother who misses
giving her big kisses and a wonderful daddy who misses snugglin gher
during "daddy's girl time". I also miss her beautiful smile that she
just learned to do a few days before she died. She was mommy's special
angel and I miss her with everything in me. I just can't wait until the
day comes that we will be together again.

I could not have asked for a sweeter baby. He was a baby everyone
would want. He never cried or fussed. He made a little sound if he was
hungry. I feel so fortunate to have spent his first 12 weeks with him
full-time before returning to work. He was my 99 days of sunshine.
When I returned to work, he calmed me down from a stressful day. He
loved to just cuddle. He was different than my other children and
very special to me. He was content with life. He loved to just look
around the room and didn't sleep much during the day. He always wanted
to see what I was doing. What a gift, I will always treasure. Thank you, for the gift that you gave to me......
