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.

I HAVE A CHILD THAT SURVIVED SIDS SHE IS NOW 15,, SHE SUFFERED A BRAIN INJURY FROM THE ORDEAL,, AND WAS IN VERY CRITICAL CONDITION AFTER IT HAPPENED FOR THREE MONTHS,, BUT SHE IS AN AMAZING KID,,

Hi, it is possible to survive sids. One of my friends have and he is living very well!

Infants sometimes die from SIDS.

I can find none. SIDS is when babies die for unknown reasons.

10,000 so the risk of a baby getting this is a BIG possibilty....... Actually, not that big. About 1 in 1000 die. Look at it this way..Out of 1000 babies...999 will survive.

SIDS occurs in infants between 1 month and 1 year old. It does not discriminate by season.

They did, it just wasn't called that.

Babies can die from a number of things. Abuse, neglect, SIDs, disease. Babies CANNOT die from being wrapped too tightly. You're supposed to swaddle them when they're newborns. Honestly, babies can die just like anyone else. There has to either be something seriously wrong with the baby or SIDS can kill them. But new research has discovered that SIDs is linked to certain shots given to infants.

People don't know yet, but it has something to do with a baby on her stomach. Vaccine reactions cause a lot of the SIDS. Many babies cannot handle the toxins

User Avatar

The exact connection has not been identified but the research has shown there are a greater number of babies that die from sids when the parents smoked while pregnant and even after the baby is born.

they don't the babies have to survive on their own

User Avatar

No it is not. Some people place their babies on their backs so much that a baby will get a flat head. Babies need tummy time when awake.

SIDS can't be treated. SIDS stands for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. So if your child had SIDS that means your child is now dead. There are ways to prevent SIDS from occurring though.

User Avatar

Research has not been able to identify exactly "how" it helps to reduce the incidence of Sids death. It is suggested it might be due to the fact that breastfed babies wake frequently for feeds and do not get into as deep of a sleep cycle.

babies eat so they can survive and not die of starvation

User Avatar

From ages 2 to 4 months. Babies can pass from 1 month to 1 year.

User Avatar

There are no signs to tell if your baby will pass to SIDS. SIDS is sudden & silent & unexpected. There is no way to tell until your baby is gone.

2% of unborn babies with Turners survive to birth. Babies with Turners who survive to birth live.

Not sure about sids, but it has 7 sides.

They survive well if you take good care of them in captivity.

Smoking doesn't cause SIDS. I lost a baby to SIDS in 2003 and I didn't smoke. There are remarks that it could be related but because no one knows what causes SIDS everyone just speculates.There is a strong correlation between parental smoking and SIDS.

SIDS is Sudden Infant Death Sydrome.
