Inner ear problem linked to SIDS?

March 15, 2011

In doing my weekly SIDS research survey I came across some information regarding one of the newer theories. This one pointed to a risk factor and had to do with the infant hearing test. In at least two states the majority of the babies who died from SIDS failed their hearing test as newborns and had to be re-tested. What interested me in this was that Toby also failed his. Unfortunately, there haven’t been any updates on this since 2009.

I don’t know what anyone could do with this information but it’s still interesting.

Here are some links:

First, let me say I'm so very sorry for you loss.

It's taken me a long time to start facing all the facts out there about SIDS; it was just too painful to find out. I'm an avoider so if I don't look, I can keep it buried. I plan to spend time on your site to see what you have come up with and to learn about your story in hopes it will finally start to help me truly heal.
