I have goose bumps and I am crying. how perfectly awful to contemplate. It must have been terrifying.
my last child would stop breathing on a regular basis. I never thought much of it until she was older and realized if she had been in a crib we probably wouldn't have noticed in time. but since she would do the little flailing thing I would just reposition her (turned out she had a birth defect that would allow her throat to colapse and the more she tried to breath the worse it got ), shake her wake her and put her back to sleep. but yeah, praise God she was sleeping with us. and praise God yours was sleeping with you last night!
