CPS: Baby died after mom rolled on top of her as they both sleep
KFDM News - KFDM has new information about the death of a two week old girl in Beaumont.
A spokeswoman for Child Protective Services says investigators believe the death is due to co-sleeping. Detectives say the mother and child were sleeping together and the mother rolled on top of the newborn in her sleep and smothered the newborn.
Police say the woman discovered her baby wasn't breathing Wednesday and ran to a nearby business for help.
According to Child Protective Services, the baby suffocated.
A spokeswoman for the agency said the mother was sleeping with her baby in bed and rolled over on top of the baby.
Caseworkers say parents must understand the risks of sleeping in bed with a baby or toddler.
CPS spokeswoman Shari Pulliam says since Sept. 1, four Texas children have died from co-sleeping.
