Back in 1959, Doctors didn't know much about SIDS. What we know now is that SIDS is not survivable. You most likely had an apnea event, you stopped breathing and started breathing again. There is no way to revive a SIDS baby. You were lucky but there is no such thing as a SIDS Survivor, unless you are referring to a parent who has survived the loss of their baby.

No, babies do not survive SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

They cannot survive or it wouldn't be sudden infant death.


I disagree. I am a SIDS survivor. When I was 2 months old, my 9 yo brother was watching me while my mom cooked dinner. He yelled, mom, mom, she's turning blue! My mom came, picked me up, patted me on the back and I started breathing again. She went back to cooking and again my brother yelled, mom, mom, she's turning blue. She took me to the hospital, where they said I survived crib death, now called SIDS. This was in 1959.

Many children have survived turning blue for reasons that were not explained, or explainable, at the time. By definition, sudden infant death syndrome is how we explain actual deaths after we rule out all known causes. As we get smarter, the category gets smaller, since we can explain a lot more of the causes of babies turning blue than we could when you and I were young. This will keep happening, and someday, with any luck, we'll find out what's killing the others and learn to treat it, too. Glad you're still around, though!

I also disagree. I have survived SIDS. Ten minutes after i was born, in 1993, i died in my aunties arms, and i do not know how they revived me. But i do know that i was to lay at an angle where my head was almost facing the floor and my feet were to the ceiling, for 14 months. I didn't turn blue or anything, i just died. I do not have any medical problems that i know of, so far. And i hope i never will.
