Twin boys who died in their sleep were accidentally suffocated, an Idaho coroner has ruled. The three-week old infants were found unconscious after sharing a bed with their mother last November. They were rushed to the hospital but pronounced dead on arrival.
The deaths of the baby boys had been investigated as possibly suspicious but the coroner determined they were accidental. The case has revived the debate on co-sleeping, a practice that many parents and experts consider unsafe and that others vigorously defend.
