MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's office says a 2-month-old girl has died after sharing an adult bed with her mother.

The baby was pronounced just after 6:00 a.m. this morning at the Parkview Apartments on Lovers Lane Road between Hampton and Silver Spring.

The 1-month, 28-day-old infant was last seen alive at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday night when she went to bed, according to a Medical Examiner's report. There were no signs of trauma or injury to the body.

The baby was found lying face-up near the foot of the bed, according to the report.

This would be at least the 16th co-sleeping death in Milwaukee so far this year.
