I used to be paranoid of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). I was really relieved when I read this article.

Not to make you paranoid again, but it still worries me because they haven't figured out yet a way to screen for this problem. That's what's so scary about SIDS to me is that it always happens in seemingly healthy babies.

At least I know that if it does happen, it's not my fault. That relieves some of the stress.

I dunno i still believe vaxs and other things can be a cause.

Safe to say Sage sleeps on top of me on his belly.. Hearing ME breathe, feeling ME breathe. I just could NOT imagine having a baby in a far off room trusting a monitor to know if baby is ok, if he was cold, wanting to snuggle, nurse etc.

I agree with mamama -- I actually wasn't very comforted by this news. I am not so much worried about it being something I did, but I am more concerned about something I can't control. Like seratonin in the brain. On the news there was a woman who did all the right things -- didn't smoke, drink, etc. -- and her son still died. That frightens me. I think it is good if they can learn more about what to do to prevent it, but at this point it still seems like they have a way to go.

I also disagree with this article and the others that have been written about this recent study, that say bedsharing increases the risk. I think that is wrong. If a baby dies from being in a bed it has to do with something specific like suffocating, getting stuck under the headboard, etc. And that is NOT SIDS. It is whatever it was that the baby died from. Sure I'm sure there are some cases of true SIDS occuring in co-sleeping situations, but that is not what is usually cited. I believe the research that says it is important for baby to learn to breathe and wake frequently by being near his or her parents. I really do believe it is the safest place -- if parents are behaving responsibly of course (by creating a safe sleep space).
