Hey ladies. I am not the mother of a baby who has passed but my best friend's son passed away July 6, 2009 from Sudden Unexplained Infant Death. I would babysit her son daily for about 12 to 13 hours a day because of her work schedule. He was just barely 4 months old when he passed away. I did recently experience a miscarriage. I do know that is very traumatic, but to actually lose a child I have given birth to would be unexplainable. I loved Carter with every bit of my heart and it feels as if my own child has been taken from my arms. I just wondered if I could join this group or not.

This forum is very slow lately. I am so sorry to hear about Carter. While no one wants to feel the pain of a loss, I am glad you do feel it so strongly. Your best friend and you can talk about him together when everyone else wants to avoid the subject. How has your grief journey been so far?

It has been really rough. I still sleep with his baby blanket every night. His seven month anniversary just passed on the 6th and just to think his first birthday would be March 22nd is killing me.
