Great article. I read about SBS when I was about to become a father and I was worried sick about the littlest of things.

I don't know if I overreacted, but as professionals say a young toddler sleeping on her stomach can in rare cases lead to unexpected death, I freaked out just by the sight of her laying on her stomach. She's now a healthy 18 month old girl, walks around, causes mischief and enjoys every minute of it. But growing into this role was frightening at first.

I think this article is a good read for new parents and veterans alike. Child abuse is one of the most despicable forms of abuse there is. And I never heard about the breath holding spell before. That was interesting.
