MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Another baby has died in Milwaukee from unsafe sleeping conditions. 

The medical examiner's office said a 3-month-old girl was sleeping in the same bed as her mother and another youngster, and the infant became unconscious. 

It happened early Sunday morning at an apartment on Milwaukee's north side. Firefighters tried reviving the baby, but could not. 

She was the 12th known infant to die from unsafe sleeping conditions in Milwaukee this year.

Advocates urge parents to have their babies sleep alone on their backs in their own cribs. 

On Sunday, Milwaukee's religious leaders will create community awareness of the problem during its third annual Safe Sleep Sabbath.
