This report focuses on the responses of 35 brothers and sisters of babies who died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Most of the children were obviously affected - the family unit and their role in it has changed, and their security was threatened. The report suggests that physicians need to be sensitive to and aware of guidance parents may need during the complex process of grieving which involves all family members. Keyword: Families
