too young for a twin bed. investment in a pack n play or crib would have prevented this. I am sorry if this sounds cruel but that is how it is. Also checking on baby might have helped

My prayers go out to this family this is a very upsetting story. I have to agree with Marsha how long before this child was checked on and why was he not put in a crib or at least on a pallet on the floor I mean it was just a nap, a little common since goes a long ways.

Court ruling or no... I would NOT have allowed my baby to spend the night at his father's, apparently new, "place" if the man did not have a crib of any kind.

This wasn't a two-year-old on the verge of transitioning to a toddler bed. And he wasn't a two-month-old incapable of even rolling over (and many times even babies of that age are underestimated.)

This was an eight-month-old baby who any 12-year-old babysitter would clearly know had the capability to roll, to crawl, to sit up, even to climb over their stupid bed-bar instead of falling between it and the bed, if he had been lucky... bless his heart.

His mother is certainly controlling herself much better than I would. She must be a saint.

you can smother in less than 3 minutes.. Do you all go and check your kids sleeping every three minutes? I very seriously doubt it. How do you know they did not a crib? It is a very sad ACCIDENT that could have happenned anywhere at anytime, whether in a crib, floor, couch or even in you lap. You need to have sympathy and prayers for the family and lay off of the blame.

I saw this story on tv last night and was curious at the absence of any emotion on the mom's part. Not sure what that meant, but she was as cheerful as can be with her plans to inform the public of the dangers of a bed like this used for an infant.

the baby (trevor) was my nephew and the mother was my sister. EVERYTHING that you all are saying is the questions we have been asking everyday... but we are thankul for everyone who has been by our side. NO PARENT WANT TO SEE THERE CHILD GO BEFORE THEM and it is hard to swallow especially when the other parent is responsible (the father)who was never there ... I thank you all for feelng our pain and letting us know that we are not the only ones raising these same questions. Its crazy how people you dont know can be so encouraging... SAD TO SAY THE FATHER HAS NOT HELPED WITH THE FUNERAL, CALLED, NOR STUCK BY HER SIDE. Please everyone be safe with your children.. will never get to look in to his bright big blue eys and beautful smile, or feel his soft warm skin.. BUT AS LONG AS WE HAVE THE SUPPORT FROM YOU ALL, AND FAITH Thats all we need. So from our family to yours..thank you all

The comments made by "chris" is both ignorant and juvenile. By the way he talks, he has not experienced the emotions that come with the loss of a very close loved one. I can only wish that it would never happen to him, because he wouldn't know how to handle the emotions that erupt. I know some of the family and relatives, and my prayers go to them.

Melinda, this is Judy Ackerman. My heart just dropped when I saw the picture of you and your precious baby. I am so sorry for what has happened. When you were on the newspaper staff at North, you were always one of those special students who was kind to everyone and who thought of everyone before yourself. I cannot even start to imagine the pain that you are dealing with right now. I am so glad that you are taking the time to stress to anyone with a baby to be careful...life is so precious. Don't let people who say mean things get you down, hold on to the love in your heart. Grieve in your own way. Stay strong.

Since when did we start spelling "sense" S-I-N-C-E? Stay off the internet and get back in to school, fool.
