Are SIDS and apnea related?

SIDS is not the same as apnea. Many people have apnea and apnea has killed infants. Infants with apnea can be resuscitated. An apnea monitor (AKA cot monitor) can detect when a SIDS victim stops breathing � but remember, a SIDS victim is already dead when that happens. Note: Infants with apnea usually are placed on apnea monitors for apnea, not to prevent the unpreventable. And many SIDS parents do use apnea monitors on subsequent children � this has mainly a placebo effect on the parents. No, they are not. You can revive a baby that has apnea if it is not too late. A SIDS baby you can't revive. SIDS is undetectable and you never know when it will hit. With apnea a baby can stop breathing and start again. SIDS is totally different.

At what age are infants usually affected by SIDS?

Sudden infant death syndrome usually affects babies between 2 - 4 months. The majority of the cases affect babies younger than 6 months. SIDS is the leading cause of death in babies who are 1 - 12 months old. It's important to do everything possible to lower your babies' risk of SIDS by putting the baby to sleep on his back, don't expose the baby to smoke (it's a good idea to have people wash their hands and clothes before holding the baby b/c of the chemicals), don't let the baby sleep with anything in his crib (INCLUDING BUMPERS), make sure the baby doesn't get overheated while he sleeps (the baby should not wear a hat to sleep in) and get proper prenatal care.

About SIDS?

About SIDSNothing is more devastating for a parent than to wake up and discover that their newborn baby has died in the night. Unfortunately, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, is one of the leading causes of infant deaths across the country. Keep your baby safe by staying informed about SIDS and avoiding behaviors that increase your child's risk of getting the disease.Although the cause of SIDS is unknown, the syndrome is still one of the leading causes of death among children under age one. Parents are encouraged to only let their baby sleep on their backs to reduce the likelihood of getting SIDS. The age group most affected by the syndrome are infants between two and four months.The scariest thing about SIDS is that most of the time there are no warning signs. Parents settle their child in for the night and by the morning the syndrome has taken hold.With no warning signs, it is difficult to give parents instructions on how to protect their little ones. However, the following behaviors are a few risk factors that could lead to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome:Having multiple babies, like twins or tripletsBaby exposure to secondhand smokeLetting baby sleep on its stomachBeing born prematureReceiving little or no prenatal careDrug usage during pregnancyBeing born to a teen motherDealing with SIDSIf you or someone you know has lost of child to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, remind them that it is not their fault. The cause of SIDS is unknown, and grieving parents are sometimes left confused and lost about what happened to their newborn. If you or a loved one is dealing with this issue, seek out grief relief counselors to help you cope with your loss.For more information on SIDS, visit theAmerican Sudden Infant Death Syndromewebsite

What is the cause of SIDS?

Nobody knows what the cause of SIDS is, there are a few ways you can prevent it. One way is to have your baby sleep on their side. Most people want their baby to sleep on their backs, but this is not good because if the baby spits up in it's sleep he/she can choke on the spit-up. There are other ways to prevent it, but you will have to do some internet searching to find out.Alan Phillips, Director ofCitizens for Healthcare Freedom states:"Studies internationally have shown vaccination to be a cause of SIDS , (SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, is a "catch-all" diagnosis given when the specific cause of death is unknown; estimates range from 5,000 to 10,000 cases each year in the US).One study found the peak incidence of SIDS occurred at the ages of 2 and 4 months in the US, precisely when the first two routine immunizations are given, while another found a clear pattern of correlation extending three weeks after immunization.Another study found that 3,000 children die within 4 days of vaccination each year in the US (amazingly, the authors reported no SIDS/vaccine relationship), while yet another researcher's studies led to the conclusion that at least half of SIDS cases are caused by vaccines.Initial studies suggesting a causal relationship between SIDS and vaccines were quickly followed by vaccine-manufacturer-sponsoredstudies concluding that there is no relationship between SIDS and vaccines; one such study claimed that there was a slightly lower incidence of SIDS in vaccines.However, many of these studies were called into question by yet another study that found "confounding" had erroneously skewed the results of these studies in favor of the vaccine.At best, there is conflicting evidence."
