    Everyone is absolving her of the blame when she's the one who was sleeping with the baby, no one else. It literally is her fault. Maybe an accident (more like neglect) but it's still her fault.

  • Reply bingbongboop December 16, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    I mean…. it is pretty dumb to sleep with a baby on an air mattress. They're plastic, they collapse. It's on the floor. Put her in a box on the floor next to you. It's so sad that she didn't know any better or think it through.

    I coslept with all my children and they are perfectly fine and healthy. It can be safe on a firm mattress without tons of pillows and blankets around . There is a way to do it safely. People have been doing this since the beginning of time.. her only mistake was sleeping on a sinking air mattress never do that.

  • Reply Hannah Darden December 16, 2019 at 4:04 pm

    I’m sorry but this is absolutely her fault. In every hospital they educate you on safe sleep for baby’s. Whether you listen to them or not. Co-sleeping is so dangerous but I know how it is to be so tired that you just sleep with baby to get them to sleep I’ve been there. But I know if something happened to my baby it would be my fault. I wouldn’t accept anyone’s sympathy towards me because I know I was warned. People need to stop sugar coating things.

    One thing she needs to see is everyone is damaged in their own way, no one is perfect.

    This poor woman is such a tortured soul. Every mom Co sleeps with their kid, and it is a risk that we all take. It could happen to any of us. I want you to stop hating yourself so you can start to make a difference in the lives of others. And maybe you should go around and do talks to pregnancy groups about the dangers of co-sleeping.

  • Reply Peace & Namaste December 16, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    This was a total accident.

  • Reply Sarah December 16, 2019 at 4:17 pm

    I feel so sorry for her. I hope she gets some help so she doesn’t have to live in this much pain everyday. It was a tragic accident, and it was definitely not her fault.

  • Reply Kim Linn December 16, 2019 at 4:19 pm

    There is a safe way to co-sleep. I slept with all 3 of my kids. Flat firm bed. Baby sleeps in crook of my arm in the middle of my husband and I. At age 6 months no longer need to keep baby in crook of arm. But must be in the middle and always in front of your body so you feel child’s movements. If I rolled over my child rolled with me. The bed always had a wall or barrier firm against the bed to prevent child rolling off bed. We even successfully co-slept in a water bed for 1 of our babies. They are now grown and my oldest has co-slept with her babies.

    This wasn’t her fault! But only she can overcome this trauma. You can keep talking to her, but it’s just a waste of breath until she can overcome this pain. I will never understand this pain. It’s just a horrible accident and I feel so bad for her.

  • Reply K W December 16, 2019 at 5:26 pm

    I know Phil is in another camp but if he weren't he could tell this woman there is no free will. She didn't choose what happened to her prior to this happening and she didn't choose what she was made out of when it happened to her. You don't make yourself. By her logic if her parents raised her differently she wouldn't have been a teen mom and this wouldn't have happened, so it's their fault? No. She did as good as she could have done at the time. She's looking at it in hindsight. So so painful.

  • Reply Desiree Cox December 16, 2019 at 5:27 pm

    She put a baby on a deflating air mattress sleeping between two adults? She is at fault

  • Reply Katelyn Michele December 16, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    I went on vacation for a week with my 5 month old once, and the only option was air mattress. So I had to decline and sleep on the floor with her for a whole week because I knew thoroughly all the rules of co-sleeping. When it comes to your children you can never ever educate yourself too much..

    My mother slept with me in her and my dads bed as an infant. I am fine. But that's just the point. This can happen to anyone and its simply a horrible tragedy. The intent was never to hurt your baby, and the guilt may never go away but you should know the guilt isn't what your baby would have wanted had they grown to the age of reason. They would want you to live your life with joy

    As a mother myself.. I've had those moments.. where I look disgusted with myself.. I hated myself.. I felt depressed and I would cry looking at the mirror because I feel like I failed my child for a weed addiction I had.. it may not seem like weed is an addictive drug but it is.
    I love my son, he came out to be extremely healthy and I look over him because I don't want to miss a moment.. I can't imagine losing my son.. my heart aches for this mommy.. she truly loved her child, it does get tiring being a parent, staying up and providing.. I understand her pain but that poor woman.. I hope she finds peace..
