    can we save SIDS baby if monitor her every minute

    After my Chloe passed away three weeks ago, although such thinking won't do anything to bring Chloe back, my husband and I were trying hard to figure out if there were chance for us to save Chloe if we monitor her every minute and awake her once we find out something is wrong. We talked to state medical examiner and he said there is no way to save a SIDS baby once it starts, even we monitor her...

I woke up early in the morning and started staring at the place where my Sons bouncer used to be placed. Flood of tears, feeling of guilt and face of my lovely boy were moving like a tornado in my head. It stayed like this for an hour or so until my wife woke...

    SIDS Research

    In July, 2006, my son was diagnosed with "interrupted SIDS" after he died in my father's arms. I am sure you have never heard of that diagnosis...that is because it is so very rare. He was 10 weeks old, a perfectly healthy baby boy. I am passionate about finding the answer to SIDS. I will never forget the agony I felt when the doctors told me that they had done all they could do for my child but...

    It was 35 years ago today

    I lost my beautiful 4-month old baby boy on this day 35 years ago, January 24, 1980. It's been 35 years and I can now talk. There were no support groups then and I was hollowed out beyond what I could describe in words. I can now be a listener. I need to find a way to make some good happen because of my grief.

My first born child would be staying with family for the first few days...
