Who says breast-feeding is good for babies

A month-old baby was found dead after her mother fell asleep while breastfeeding her at their home in Durian Tunggal, near here.

The mother, Noradila Mohd Nor, 20, said she had woke up at 3am to breastfeed her daughter, Siti Zulaikha Norman but fell asleep.

When she woke up at 6am, she was shocked to find her daughter with foam around the mouth.

When she failed to wake the baby up, she woke up her husband Norman Bahran, 25, and they took the baby to Alor Gajah Hospital where the girl was declared dead.

Hospital director Dr Suraidah Kassim said the baby was dead a few hours before she was brought to the hospital - NST
