sudden infant death syndrome

hello there i just want to seek your advice about the sudden infant death syndrome because the other day my baby had the difficulty in breathing as if she is losing oxygen and as if she is drowning.i was frightened about what i saw because what if i'm not there beside her when that thing occurs.is that normal for babies to act like that or is that already a sign of SIDS?

I would need to know how old your baby is, and also is she sick? It is hard to tell. Have you taken her to the doctor to see if she has the proper use of her lungs?

Here is a good site for you to guard against the possibility of SIDS. Good luck!
