We're never safe - Page 2

post #21 of 25
I am sorry that you lost Charlie to SIDS. I lost my four month old dd to SIDS in 2004. I was completely devastated and like you went over every single detail, even the natural mosquito repellant. There are no words that I can offer that will help:(, somehow we just find it in ourselves to keep going. I miss my daughter eight years later, but the pain has softened. I gave birth to another beautiful girl in '05, got pregnant four months after Ava died and I have never. Regretted that. It's very exciting you're preggo with twins. I am pregnant and due in Jan., i'm nervous. Are you? I used an apnea monitor with my dd and it helped me at least get some sleep. Just know you are not alone and there are others that have made their way through the grief.

Thank you so much. I have considered an apnea monitor, did that work out well for you?

Holly, I have heard a lot of people say that they had bad experiences with the apnea monitor, but I was super glad to have it. I only had a few false alarms in the eight months we used it
Our insurance paid for it for six months and we self paid after that, it was ridiculously expensive but I just was not ready to give it up. I want o use one for my new LO.

Yeah, Im pretty sure we are going to get one at least for the first 6 months. I'm also looking into getting two Snuza Halo monitors, because I can use those anywhere. If they are in their strollers, in the car, naps at someone elses house, ect. I honestly cant imagine any time that Im going to be comfortable with them sleeping and not being monitored. But...there is still a good 6 months between today and their birth, so I may be singing a different tune by then. But Im not planning for that smile.gif

I'm so sorry for your loss. Although I don't know you personally, I have read a few of your posts about Charlie and can feel the light and joy he brought to this world. He will be remembered by so many, including people like me who did not get to meet him.

 

I'm sending much love and support to you and many congratulations on your twin pregnancy.
