High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - April 24, 1974, High Point, North Carolina To your Good health a thoughtless remark can be cruel by George c. Thosteson my. Dear or. Thosteson can you Tell me what causes crib death in infants a 5-month-old died that Way recently. One Young woman approached me and said it must have been that the Mother had taken some pills while pregnant. I done to believe this is True As in be been Reading about it in newspapers. Seems to me they can put a child to bed with no symptoms of being ill and the child is found dead. Would appreciate it much if you could help me out in this matter. A mrs. R. C. I Hope that thoughtless remark never got Back to the Mother. Think what her guilt reaction could have been a and for no reason. No i cannot Tell you what causes crib death. Doctors and research scientists Are Hunting for clues that will Lead to an answer. But they done to yet know. As to the Mother a having taken some pills a there is no indication that that is involved. It is True that there Are a few drugs that taken in Early pregnancy can interfere with the development of the fetus and cause physical defects. There Are Many More drugs about which Little or nothing is known in that regard so the Rule today is to avoid any drugs unless known to be Safe or known to be urgently needed. But crib deaths Are not singling out defective babies As the victims. There is in fact no visible pattern. Perfectly healthy babies do indeed die in infancy and the strongest suspicion is that not yet having been gradually exposed to Many kinds of germs colds and other kind such babies May pick up an infection that in some Way stops respiration. Breathing. With a tiny baby who happens to encounter a germ against which he has As yet no resistance infection can flare up with frightening Speed. In a few hours. Overnight. An infants airways Are so Small that Only a Little congestion can close off the Windpipe. But by the time the baby is examined afterwards there May be no appreciable evidence of the congestion remaining. Which makes the search for the cause the More difficult and baffling. It is characteristic of the parents of such lost babies to be overcome with guilt feeling that they did something a or did no to do something a and thus caused the death. Close investigation of Case after Case does not give any indication of that being so. It happens a but we done to know Why. But in View of that awful feeling of guilt that so often follows it is thoughtless and potentially cruel to pass around notions with no logic behind them pointing an accusing Finger at a Mother who is already grief stricken enough without having such things said of her. Dear or. Thosteson after Gall bladder surgery How Long must one be careful about lifting and reaching and when can you expect to be feeling Good etc.? a .
