    TX - 4mnth old found dead in motel room

    A four month old baby has been found dead in a hotel room in Fort Worth.

    The article's making it sound like the baby was alone, but then goes on to say;

    'Police investigated, searched the scene and asked questions. In the end, officer found no signs of trauma, injuries or illness on the infant. Fort Worth PD said there were no immediate concerns...'

    I can't really understand what went on here.

    Maybe an oddly reported SIDS case. Where was Mum, Dad? Just sounds like bad reporting to me. The polis would be all over parents like a rash if it was sus.

    "Most deaths due to SIDS occur between 2 and 4 months of age, and incidence increases during cold weather. African-American infants are twice as likely and Native American infants are about three times more likely to die of SIDS than caucasian infants. More boys than girls fall victim to SIDS."


    http://www.babycenter.com/408_when-c...ids_1368538.bc

    Babies between 1 and 4 months old are most at risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and 90 percent of cases occur in babies under the age of 6 months. By definition, SIDS doesn't happen after a child's first birthday.

    too early to even craft any sort of theory IMO. So very many possibilities with what little has been reported. But of course we all hope this was an "innocent" death. (i.e, health-related or tragic accident - the latter it must not have been though, as there was really nothing like that reportedly found at the scene).

    No, not rare. Probably one of the more common causes of death at that age, sadly

    I wonder if there was a crib in the hotel room? Because co-sleeping is emerging as a MAJOR risk factor for death in this age group.

    PS: Co-sleeping is a 100% PREVENTABLE cause of infant death. I've seen too many damned cases of it in my work, and I'm sick of it.
