I feel like I have to watch my baby's every little breath to protect her. It is driving me crazy and the thought of it is tearing me apart in the inside.
The moment I decided to relax a little bit about it I read a journal post on CM that talks about a woman losing her 3 month old to SIDS last week.
How do I make myself relax and feel better? How do I make things safer for my darling little Ellie?

You just have to learn to relax mamma I did and do the same thing with my son and he will be 6 months on the 13th of Feb, it freaks me out so bad that even when I know he is okay I still go and check on him, I would never know what to do if I lost him, but I went and spent about $130.00 on a movement monitor for his bed and if it wasn't for that I would have probably been on meds for anxiety, its called an Angelcare movement monitor you can buy then online and at Babies-r-us, the only other thing I can tell you to do is educate yourself on it when he first came home I was so freaked that I read everything I could on and about SIDS how to prevent it what the possible causes were EVERYTHING I could find I read. cont----->>

Do you have a fan in her room because recently they found that having a fan going in the baby's room reduces SIDS by something like 70%, also always make sure she is sleeping on her back, no blankets or pillows in her bed so she can't suffocate on anything and next time you take her to the Doctors ask them what else you should do to prevent anything from happening GL and if you need more info on the monitor PM me
