Law and order A cot that a coroner issued a safety warning about following the death of a seven-week-old baby is still on sale in Britain, an inquest has been told. She said she had just had a bath on the morning of April 9 when she discovered the baby lying lifeless at their home in Haywards Heath, West Sussex.
Every day since this happened I question why I didn't see how unsafe it was Esther Roseman The report stated that Grace was found with her head over the edge of the cot, but because she could not lift her head back up this restricted her air supply which led to her death from asphyxia.
The inquest has heard that the Roseman family received the cot second-hand, but without instructions or straps to attach it to an adult bed. The inquest was told the cot had one side that could be lowered, but the instructions state the baby should not be left alone in this position.
The Regulation 28 report also stated that the crib was in a tilted position of 8cm 3in while the instructions state it should not be above 5cm 2in.
It seemed the cot was designed with the half fold to stop the baby rolling out of it. SWNS Mr Roseman, who had been home at the time because he had been ill the previous day, told the inquest that he heard his wife screaming from Grace's bedroom. I jumped out of bed as quickly as I could, I did see Esther holding Grace and in my mind she was gone.
Robert Norman, company secretary of Bednest, told the inquest that the three-sided cot was designed to allow parents to provide comfort to their baby without the "dangers of co-sleeping ". He explained that the two sides are designed to come down like a drawbridge to prevent gaps between the cot and the adult bed.
He said the product was designed and tested to Furniture Industry Research Association safety standards.

He said that Bednest teamed up with the National Childbirth Trust to promote the cot because the charity had been keen to promote the benefits of bedside cots.
Mr Norman said the company had been "completely shocked" to hear that a baby had got its head over the side. We say when they start to push up and crawl not to use the product.

There's also the Sleepyhead — a favourite of John Lewis' Bettis - a multi-functional, portable baby bed that you can use from birth and that has a longer shelf life than your average Moses basket. The firmer the mattress, the better.

Mattresses tend to come in two sizes, standard and continental and should fit the equivalent sizes of cots commonly available in the UK.
