I woke up early in the morning and started staring at the place where my Sons bouncer used to be placed.

    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...

  • I lost my baby Catherine to SIDS in janurary of this year. I missing being a mommy and would like to try for another baby (she was our only child) but my DH is dragging his feet. Part of it comes from the fact that he feels like we did something wrong, or there was something we should have done that could have prevented her death. I have explained to him what SIDS is, and every once in a while he...

  • 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.

    Hello, All. I am unfortunately new to this group and wanted to post a little bit about our story. I delivered my sweet little boy on Thursday, November 7, 2013 @ 12:23 a.m. He was perfect! A little on the small side, 5 pounds, 11 ounces, but as healthy as could be. We were released from the hospital the following Friday. My first born child would be staying with family for the first few days...

If you ever wonder if you will get through this horrible loss the answer is YES, but it will not be easy and you will...
  • I have messaged some of you. SIDS is a painful tragedy. So please give me an answer. When did your baby die of SIDS, and when was your baby vaccinated? If there is a correlation between vaccinations and SIDS, don't parents deserve to know? If I can have enough parents give me data, then I can do research. I have looked for statistics, and found none. Please ask why? I am asking because my...
