We all went home early Friday afternoon. Late Friday evening/early Saturday morning, I picked him up out of his bassinet [cradle] next to the bed to nurse him. I laid on my side and led him next to me to feed. He liked to nurse some and then sleep a little and then nurse some. So, when he seemed like he was sleeping and no longer wanted to nurse, I picked him up to put him back in his bassinet. As I lifted him up, he didn't make any movement, which was slightly strange because he usually moved a little when I picked him up. I took off his swaddle to see if this would wake him and still no response. I then took off his zippered pyjamas. Still no response. I woke up my husband and we called for the ambulance, then I started CPR.
The ambulance arrived in less than 5 minutes and began working on him and he was rushed to the hospital. They also tried to resuscitate him, but couldn't and he was pronounced dead. He was only 3 days old.
The medical examiner performed an autopsy on him to try to determine the cause of death.
