I often chat with the owner of a local kids resale shop as I browse the store. This time, she has just had a new baby girl so we were talking all things baby. I knew she also had a young son, so I asked how he was doing. To my horror, she told me he had passed away at daycare in March at 11 months old. The cause was SIDS. I was so horrified that I didn’t say anything besides how very sorry I was. So, I don’t know exactly what happened. But, it just reminds me that I have to be so careful with my baby’s sleep even though she’s 6 months and can roll over and sit up. There’s still a risk. It’s so scary.

How much do you worry about SIDS? Has anyone in your life lost a baby to it?
