A devoted mother fought back tears at an inquest as she relived the moment her newborn baby was found dead in a travel cot just four days after being sent home from hospital.
Kelly Hardman was with partner Michael O'Donnell when they woke up to find 19-day-old daughter Lilly-May lying unresponsive beside them in a crib.
Mr O'Donnell attempted to revive the infant but she was pronounced dead an hour later in hospital.
Tests showed Lilly-May, from Wigan, died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome - although scientists are not able to establish a cause for the condition.
Inquiries revealed a relative of Mr Donnell had lost a baby in similar circumstances, but experts said there was no suggestion of a 'genetic link' to the tragedies.
At the hearing in Bolton Miss Hardman, who has another child aged five, told how Lilly-May had been born at 37 weeks on November 7 last year weighing six pounds 10 ounces.
‘'She was very lively, albeit a little jaundiced,'' said Miss Hardman. ''This continued for the next few days.''
