The cause is still unknown, obviously....BUt overall evidence points towards a weak respiratory system along with a weakened immune system...that
wikpedia link will take you through some medical terms and have a understanding of the area in question..
the best advice I can give is watch for signs...reflux, spitting up more then usual, coughing, trouble swallowing..be extra careful during flu and
cold symptoms and season...keep the air quality clean,even the smallest particles can have affect, listen to the morticion...accidental neglect when
newborn is in a weakened state can be overlooked....please be cautious with vaccinations especially during cold, flu or teething..high temperatures
and vaccines are a big no no.....extreme caution...delay vaccines until the child is healthy, only single dose vials, and never multiple doses at one
time..space them out...
and overall keep the crib safe, head position can be more important then you can imagine, especially after a full tummy..there is a certain age where
the respiratory system becomes more mature and these tissues and muscles function more properly...practice, practice strengthening of head and neck
region..keeping head up,balancing for long periods of time, be careful with muscle soreness and weakness...
Heart monitors that are placed under the matress can be found at stores...
they can detect the slightest irregular heart rate..toys r us should have them...
laughing is by far the best exercise for this region dont forget this advice....
These are the most important ..serotonin?????...what baby is going to have a full dose or normal does of serotonin..what is a normal dose, is the
release constant over a 24 period..at what age is the study to be done to confirm..especially with sleeping habits, the release of chemicals could be
different at different times of the day..think jaundice.. if it's binding, is it a structure problem..besides there is no way to test if this baby or
that baby should have full release at any part of the day or anytime of development...that first post,clearly states they suggest...no confirmation of
a correlation...this is just a first step, of a statement, to get funding for research and for further investigation...which in my opinion everything
needs to be study but let's not start jumping...
Everything can be linked together..just to hard to study and determine...ANY of these factors can come into play one day and take affect the next day,
or at night when the baby is tired and weak.... no way to confirm..
Best bet watch for symptoms, talk to your doctor, educate yourself on these signs, be extra careful during times of supposedly weakened
immune systems,which can have a great effect on respiratory system..be extra careful until respiratory system is fully developed and strong . I know
its hard now,but enjoy the newborn and make the baby laugh,and watch he or she become stronger...
think of a baby lifting head up, lifting chest up, and turning head and neck region gracefully and with ease...watch for these signs and help the baby
become strong...and it should be okay...
Believing SIDS just happens and nothing can be done or its hereditary is just plain ignorant and reckless advice.. never has a baby been in a
hospital and just died with SIDs and monitors where hooked up and a confirmation that SIDS was chemically induced and just happened...anyone says so,
provide a link..if this was the case, then SIDS would be solved...SIDS happening in doctors arms,please..linky stinky...
It is a structure problem, that needs to be strengthened, within the chest,neck and respiratory region...yes SIDS has been around since the beginning,
but currently there is much much more environmental factors that can hinder any kind of development, whether physical or mental..hence the recent rise
in cases. Boys and girls development differently from the beginning..
that is my opinion backed with experience and research..there is a reason a milestone is reached and cases fall off the charts down to zero.
whoever and whomever, accept it or not, but exposure is the best, so bravo for everyone's participation,wrong or right....
