Emma Smith spoke about the tragic cot death of her ten-week-old daughter Maisy after she accidentally fell asleep with her on the sofa.
She said she had known the guidelines on cot death and had gone to sit on the sofa to avoid falling asleep next to her daughter after a night feed.
She told Good Morning Britain: "I put her down bedside me and I didn't mean to but I fell asleep. Then tragically, when I woke up she had died."
