My daughter died of sids in 1992 when she was 14 months old. She was lying on her back when she died, and autopsy showed perfectly healthy baby! I found out then that although rare , children have been known to just "die" for no reason up to age 5!
I also found out later that my biological father had another grandchild die of sids. so i also wonder if it is genetic.
It took me about 5 years to fully feel like myself again. It is the worst thing that could ever happen to a person. I had three other children just after and all are healthy and happy but i will forever be overprotective! I know without a shadow of a doubt that i would never survive another loss of a child.
my heart goes out to all other sids parents and i hope they find a cause and cure!!
