Cot Death - Is there still a Risk?
Hi Helen

Ever since my little wonderful baby was born I have been terrified to lose her. I guess every mother goes through exactly the same experience, and especially cot death has been my worst fear.

My daughter is now 15 months old (she was born on the 15th of November 2006), and I actually thought that by now she would be "safe". I have now heard about a 14 months old baby girl that died of cot death!!! Will I ever stop waking up every hour during the night just to check whether she is still breathing?? :-(

What is the risk for cot death at her age? What can I do to prevent it??
