My son is 6w old and I panic a lot about sids. I am constantly checking his breathing, sleeping or not. He still seems to gasp for air, almost like he forgot to breathe, and it scares me so bad. If I don't notice the blanket moving up and down while he's sleeping I flip out. I cry about it sometimes. Today at his pediatrician appt the dr mentioned that sids is more common in boys, occurs most frequently at 4m old and for some reason the month of April has the highest incidents of sids. This only made me feel worse. I never had ppd with dd and sids was a serious concern of mine but it wasn't something I constantly freaked out and panicked over. We suffered a miscarriage in October of last year amd a mom in my due date group just lost her son to sids so that made me panic even more. Is this something that will subside on its own? Should I see my dr about it?
