Re: Child died of SIDS in my care
Even though we hear of SIDS a lot, it isn't often that we actually know someone who has suffered from this devastating syndrome. You have kept babies and children for 8 years and never had this happen, so I would say you must be a very conscientious babysitter. My advice would be to get into a support group of families and friends who have lost babies to SIDS. Even if the parents had been right there, the same scenario would have played out. Very sad, but NOT your fault. SIDS is no one's fault. Find either a good support group or a therapist who deals in this area. Be kind to yourself. It may take some time, but please don't try to do this alone with no professional help. God bless you, dear one! I'm so sorry.
