When a baby dies...
A mother shares her feelings after the death of her baby.
I read the piece of guilt over child's death.

I had identical twin boys on 19 August 2011. They were both very healthy and really doing well. On Sunday 25 September 2011 we woke up at 5am for my husband to go to work and saw that one of our 5week old little boys  is lying dead next to me. We fed them at 3am and 4am decided to let them sleep in our bed just for a hour till my husband has to go to work.

Paramedic and doctor say that it was cot death (SIDS) and that there was no sign of choking or suffocation. I still feel guilty every day.
