And then, AND THEN, I found website after website claiming an elevated risk of SIDS after one particular immunization. How could this be possible? How did I miss this new subject specially engineered to keep me up at night, necessitating me to check Viv's breathing every time I jerked awake from an unwelcome doze, during which I had panic dreams of horrible outcomes? So, I went to PubMed again, and there were a few case studies of infant deaths that could possibly be associated with this vaccine. So now I'll be utterly paranoid for the next two months, convinced that any fussiness in our usually placid baby is a sign of impending doom. OK, the next five years. Let's be realistic.
Of course, every individual website claiming this link uses the exact same copy and even calls asthma "a condition not unlike SIDS." That's a head-scratcher. Still, I'm now very worried.
