MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News) Milwaukee has recorded its 16th death of a baby this year due to unsafe sleeping conditions. The medical examiner's office said a five-month-old boy was found dead by her mother late Sunday afternoon, after they spent most of the day sleeping together in her queen-sized bed.
Experts say the safest way for a baby to sleep is in a crib.
Officials said the baby's home had three cribs, all filled with clothes, baby supplies, and other items. The mother told officers she was not intoxicated, and she had just two glasses of wine before going to bed with her infant.
