I am so sorry to read about this. Such a horrible thing to happen to a mother. My heart breaks for her and she is in my prayers. Many adults don't realize that placing an infant in bed with them is one of the most dangerous things you can do. Many think it is safe having the child right there with them, but in the end, when something like this happens, all you can do is hope others who are doing this will stop. Again I will keep her in my prayers. Such a shame.
