My5Babies:) (1147 days ago) Well, if they do start to pass away, the alarms would sound. They go off, if there is lack of breathing, irregular heartbeat and so on. They are closely monitored at all times. When my daughter was in the NICU there were 3 beds in there and ALWAYS 3 nurses at one time. Even though there is no explanation for SIDS, the alarms would catch it, I am sure.
Str8 As (1147.1 days ago) This is a good question. I am guessing because babies rest better on their tummies and it help keep the cords and tubes in place better? It may also give them a since of comfort bacause they are used to being in a curled up position? I am stabbing in the dark on this one LMBO!
canadababy (1147.3 days ago) I just saw a picture of this too and was wondering...But this baby had a tube on it`s mouth so I assume it was being closely monitored like mrsjmickens1 said. BUT, true SIDS isn`t apnea, right? They just pass away without warning and without any chance of revival, isn`t that how it works? Sorry, don`t know the real answer but I`m wondering too :)
mrsjmickens1 (1147.3 days ago) cause there all on monitors so if they were having apnea they would be notified immediately and at home we dont have that luxory..
