How scary!! My ds did that in the NICU at 2 weeks old when they placed him on his back. He had awful reflux and they KNEW it. It made me so angry.

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!

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Awesome!! Thank you so much for sharing your story, which I will print and keep in my archives for future when people tell me that co-sleeping is bad.
