I feel very sad for the parents and families of these poor children.

My daughter is no longer in day care and hasnt been for quite some time. However, when she was, I chose the much higer cost of a center rather than a home because of reasons just like this. Luckily, my daughter was never in a center as an infant, just as a preschooler, but I feel so sad for parents such as these. My heart just goes out to them.

Tragic. How many are dying in their own homes?

Stay home with your children. It's that simple. Daycare is one of the biggest travesties our society has subjected on our children.

Shame on you! Using statistics in a false way to bolster your own agenda against private daycare providers! Even if there were an equal number of children dying at each daycare every year, the percentage of children dying at private daycares would be greater than at daycare centers, because there are more private providers than centers.

My heart breaks for the family of that baby. As a Child care provider for over thirty years I can only imagine how devastating it must be for her also. In your effort to degrade Licensed Childcare providers please remember the are many many of us who have given our hearts and homes to children over the years with wonderful outcomes. I have life long relationships with many of "my" children. No center can provider the "second" mom, or extended family that we have had.

"Cot (crib) death is caused by vaccines. Vaccines are noxious substances. Serum of SIDS babies is so poisonous that all mice injected minute amounts of it die." (Quotes of Dr. Scheibner are from: "Vaccination, The Medical Assault on the Immune System."

Well done - bringing public awareness to the causes of death among infants may save a life. Another factor which causes death is the parent sleeping in close proximity to the child as to roll over or inadvertently hinder the airways of the baby.

Bought and paid for by the commercial daycare centers that would LOVE to increase their client base.

So where is the Conservative outrage and government mandates to ensure that these children are protected and that their lives are not lost?
