I was reading and earlier post about the thing's that you need to avoid in order to prevent SIDS.
I follow these religiously and don't take any chances.
I always thought the term SIDS referred to the spontaneous death or an infant that has no explanation. It is an unpreventable tragedy that occurs.
For example; If a baby has cot bumpers/liners and passes away-I would assume the cause of death would be suffocation-not SIDS? As there is an explanation to the cause of death.
My bestfriend passed away in 2007 from SADS. Sudden Adult Death Sydrome. They searched every inch or her body and tested her for eveyrthing under the sun. No cause of death was ever found. So in conclusion-it was SADS. Wouldn't this mean the same for SIDS?
I am just curious as I heard so many different things.
No matter how it happens, it is a terribly devastating event and I send out all my love to those affected by SIDS.
