Someone on my birth board told me today that I should not have vaccinated Maya because vaccines cause SIDS and that I should look into that for our next kid so it doesn’t happen again. Wow. Not that I could have done anything about it anyway, but I’m vaccinating my children. Vaccines are a good thing. They do not cause SIDS. Nothing does. I just can’t believe the nerve of some people. Regardless of what you believe about SIDS, vaccines, or whatever, now is not the time to bring it up. I don’t care what you think. I never asked for advice. I never asked what caused her death. I just wanted support. This is the hardest thing I have ever gone through, I do not need strangers telling me that I basically caused my daughter’s death. Ridiculous.

  1. Im visiting from the November 2014 board on baby center…and all I can say is can’t really fucking believe someone would be that rude to say those things to you…I wanna find that person and punch them in the face for you…that is beyond rude!!! And SIDS means there is no reason hence the SUDDEN part of the name…people are so rude


  2. i’m also from the november 2014 board, and can say you have nothing but support from me. you did everything you could, and are in NO WAY responsible for her loss. you love that sweet girl to the ends of the earth, and it is evident in every single word you write. i’m sending you texas-sized hugs from the lone star state. my heart hurts for you every day.


  3. Im from the October board. I have been reading your blog daily and have wanted to comment but never really knew what to say. However, I just want to be there for you to support you now. People think they mean well but this is not a time or place to impose their views. You did nothing wrong. You only loved your baby girl and just know that within your heart. I feel so bad for you that the thought has even entered your mind because someone needed to voice their opinion. Listen mama, I vaccinated some of my kids right on time and some not due to sickness, allergies etc and it made no difference on their health. If you feel that is a possibility that is only up to you and your husband to question. Nobody else has that right! My heart breaks for you every day. I wish I could reach out to you some how. Maya went to bed that night a happy and loved baby. That’s all she knew. The pain felt now is earthbound. She is still happy and loved xoxo
