back to sleep WARNING

Just want to throw a warning out there. Do nottt place babies on thier belly to sleep even during naps. Today my son was almost a victim of sids....or well accidentaccidental suffocation. My mom had him in his belly as she usually does for a nap. He started breathing wierd he was lethargic and would stop breathing for periods and was clay colored. He is okay now tgank god she noticed in time.....he was breathing in his own carbon dioxide and was not getting enough fresh oxygen even though nothing was covering his face. So please please always place them on thier backs. If my mom hadn't have been right there while he was napping my son may not be here. That was the scariest thing I have ever went through and as a mother i want no one else to have to experience that feeling.

Drove me nuts. My dd slept on her stomach once she could roll onto it. I'd check on her like 10 times a night. She was about 4 or 5 months then. I'd roll her back over to her back and before I'd even lay down shed be back on her tummy. Luckily she was always fine but it really scared me. I literly could not get her to stay on her back or side.

I'm glad your baby is okay and your mother realized something wasn't right, that would have been awful..

..But SIDS and suffocation aren't the same thing, the cause of SIDS is 100% unknown.

 Boys are at a higher risk of SIDS than girls, although that doesn't make girls immune. Glad you're little one is okay!

I was always worried about that. I could never sleep when baby was in the crib though, I was always afraid something would happen and I wouldn't notice.

I know I'm superrr worried now even more than before. :/ I don't know what I would do if I lost him. I'm being super careful now and I'm sure she will be too.

Oh and yes sids is different but they have sone known causes for it. One cause is the babies brain just doesn't work right waking the baby and the brain doesn't keep the baby breathing. But luckily that's not my little guy
