Baby Breast-Fed to Death in Warri Nigeria

Welcome to Linda Ikeji's Blog: Baby Breast-Fed to Death in Warri

Read this on a blog and I just had to post it. A newspaper reported a case of sudden infant death syndrome or suffocation as breast feeding to death because the baby died beside the mother while being breast fed as the mother sleeps (Silly misinformed media) . From what I read it seems that the baby suffocated due to the mother's breast size as it blocked the baby's airways while sucking and since the mother was sleeping, she was unable to control the situation. On a serious note this is a wake up call for new mums to be mindful and cautious about SIDS, please do the appropriate thing for your baby and not for the sake of fatigue ( I know I have used that a number of times). May the child rest in peace and may GOD bless our little ones. (Amen)
