I have been thinking about this as it was brought up by one of the other Moms! If their is a Connection between SIDS and Sleep Seizure Deaths? Any thoughts? What do you think we can do to get some valuable information on this topic and or to get a Neurologist to look into or share their thoughts, viewpoints, opinions on this as I think that alot of Deaths from Sids may actually have been due to SUDEP>

I agree their is really no scientific answer that I am aware of or have been told about SIDS and so SUDEP because it can happen at any age makes me wonder more and more now especially. I need to do some talking to local Neurologists and see what I can find out.

I really wonder this a lot. Since they can never determine a cause for SIDS in most cases. Really makes you wonder, since seizures can strike anyone at anytime or age. Our daughter started having them at 4 days old. Like Cancer, seizure disorders don't know any age, race, or gender.
