Baby girl becomes 7th co-sleeping death in Milwaukee County

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A baby girl has become the seventh infant to die in Milwaukee County this year after sleeping with an adult in bed.

A 2-month-old Milwaukee girl died on Saturday. A medical examiner’s report said the mother told conflicting stories to authorities.

An ambulance worker quoted the mother as saying the girl died in her own crib – while a police officer said the woman admitted falling asleep with the baby in a bed cluttered by things like boxes and a laundry basket.

She said she went to another bed during the night, and saw the baby bleeding in the morning.

Co-sleeping deaths have been a big problem in Milwaukee in recent years. Officials say the safest way for a baby to sleep is in his or her own crib without blankets, pillows, or toys.
