From my nursing class, even though they don’t know exactly what causes it it can be somehow related to a genetic factor because they have found it is a higher risk if a previous child died from SIDS. That is so sad though!!

there is also a theory involving a fungus, which could also account for why once a sids death has occured, subsequen babies are at a higher risk of sids.

🙁 so sad. Nancy Grace is kinda nutty though so I would take her opinions with a grain of salt

ok, now I gotta run off to Google. I swear I read a story about a mom who lost several babies to SIDS (in reader’s digest) and they eventually charged the mom with murder…but I can’t remember the outcome.

SIDS is rare, but unfortunately once one child dies of SIDS you run an increased risk of it happening again with the next baby.

This is sad. I hate it when people jump to conclusions in these cases. I hope they do an investigation and figure out if something else was going on, but until then people should just leave it alone and let the family grieve.

SIDS II is thought to be genetically-linked.
