Regret it?  I did today just now.  I was in the January2013 moms group and i click on a post and the mom says shes leaving the group because she just lost her daughter to SIDS.  This made me sad and fearful.  I worry about things like this(when you have a new baby you tend to worry about everything) but lately so many babies are passing from sids my moms friend just buried her baby.  It just makes me nervous.  I just hate reading about things like this.  All i could say to her was how sorry i was for her loss.  I stare at my dd sleep and I check on ds while he is sleeping.  I function on a few hours of sleep a day, make 4 hours max.

Yes. I forgot what room it was in but her four year old son was brutally murdered 8 or 9 yrs ago by two young boys that lured him out of a store, took him not far from the store near train tracks so no one could hear. Beat him, brutally tortured him by stuffing batteries in his backside, tearing his nails, horrible, horrible acts. Those boys were 9 or 10 and they were about to be released b/c they were going to turn 18. She needed as many moms as possible to sign a petition to keep those little creeps in jail. I felt for her and of course signed the petition. I will never forget that story and ALWAYS keep an eye on my babies and cherish them everyday.

OMG, They should have been tryed as adults for this.  I think that why some kids so crimes such as this they know they wont be in prison long.  Did the petition help?  I hope so

ok Ladies 19 yrs ago my son died from SIDS, he was in the hospital 6 days (Feb 13 -19) before he passed and because of that i never celebrated Valentines Day but yesterday my 18yrs old son said Ma i want you to celebrate valentines day with me and Ladybug (my daughter). I couldn't refuse his offer. So this is the first Valentine in 19 yrs that I celebrated. I love my children and without them I am nothing.

My daughter is 1 month so i understand your worry.  kids health.org and go to SIDS, but every time ive heard of it, the baby is sleep and is smothered by accident which is why babies should sleep on their back not stomach, and there shouldnt be any fluffy things in the crib such as pillows and a lot of people are against bed sharing.  I was reading and baby also can over heat(to much clothing)

Actually if the child smothers the death certificate will say that but if your child die from SIDS is say SIDS.
