Last year a girl I knew since I was little died and no one knew what had caused it. I wasn't particularly close to her but I respected her mother and so went to the funeral when asked. My mum recently bumped into her mother and found out that the cause off death was the same bacteria that is believed to be in babies who have died from cot death. Her mother has been told that it can lie dormant but activate at any time but that you can't test for it on live children. I've never heard anything like this before and wondered if anyone else had? She has also been told cot death can happen at any age though is more prevalent in babies up to 6 months and that her daughter could have died at anytime. Shes a highly religious woman an even though it was her only child shefeels grateful for the time she did get with her daughter. I feel so sorry for her especially as I have 3 kids myself and l couldn't bear loosing any of them. It's all so sad.

It's not the cot death I've never heard of though admittedly never in someone as old as 27 it's the stuff about the bacteria I'm curious about I've never heard that before. Cot death is SIDs sudden infant death syndrome.

I've never heard of cot death. That is so tragic! I cant imagine losing a child, especially so sudden.
