My daughter is 5months old now and ever since she was born im constantly worried about some one stealing her, something bad happening to her or SIDs. It has almost become like an obsession. Anytime we go out anywhere im like gripping her stroller so no one will kidnap her, i know its normal to worry about your baby but sometimes i think im a little bit too paranoid. Even at home at night im afraid someone is going to come and snatch her up i think about it 24/7 i try to tell my self not to worry but you never now what could happen....any suggestions to help me?

You're not crazy, I did the same thing. Still do to a point. My daughter is now 6 years old, but when she was little I was so worried about SIDS that I had her sleep in a bassinet by my bed and I slept with my hand on her stomach at all times to check her breathing, it was a silly worry as she was on a breathing moniter due to that I had sleep apnea when I was an infant. I constantly worry about someone stealing her (still). But hey, who can blame us. With all the news coverage now a days about stuff like kidnappings and SIDS deaths, I feel like parents who are a little paranoid, are made to be such by the fact that bad stuff DOES happen. You'll get a little better with as your daughter gets older, as I have. Those overwhelming thoughts will sometimes slip to the back of your mind. But no parent ever stops worrying.
