How am I suppose to enjoy her, when all I can see is cot death, im so scared to sleep at night incase she dies, im so scared of loving her incase she is taken from me. How am I suppose to get through the next 6 months? Im scared I even eat/bath/dress fast so im not away from her long.
we have never had cot death in the family so dont know why this effecting me.
I know the feeling. I am 6 weeks pp. The first two weeks were so bad. It has gotten better until recently. I researched on the net of sids. Found out that it happens most in winter. Thats scary. They say the peak is 2-4 months..... Its going to be hell going through that time spand
The baby monitor's are great these days, you can hear your baby breathing through the monitor, and also the sensor pad detects any non-movement.
I have an 8mth old, and we still have the monitor and sensor pad in her room (we are paranoid about the whole cot death as well, even now), although we've had a couple of false alarms, I'd rather false alarms than not have an alarm when something did go wrong.
