    There's always a reason.

    So sorry to hear that the baby died.

    If you can provide as much info as possible re: what you fed, and any other potential clues, hopefully folks here can help you pin down what wrong wrong.

    Perhaps the mother sat on it and smothered it? Just a thought. I'm sorry for your loss.
