Distraught mum finds her four-month-old baby dead in his cot on Boxing Day

A mum has described the agony at finding her baby son lifeless in his cot as she went to feed him on Boxing Day.

Georgina Marshall broke down and began screaming when she realised four-month-old Isaac was not breathing.

She started giving him chest compressions but nothing could be done to save little Isaac, reports Nottinghamshire Live.

A post-mortem examination is now underway to find out how the "healthy, happy baby who was always smiling" died.

Georgina, 20, of St Ann’s said: "I walked in to give him a feed on Boxing Day morning and saw he wasn’t breathing.

"I started giving him compressions and my mum came in to help. I was screaming and panicking.

"I want to raise awareness of how sudden it can be. Make sure you enjoy the time you have got with your son or daughter.

"He was a smiling and happy baby. He brought joy to everyone’s life. He was premature but had gained full strength and health.

"He had a bit of a cold so they are doing an autopsy to work out how he died."

Isaac’s dad Aidan Brown, 20, also of St Ann’s, was working at CEX when his dad and grandad had to come and tell him the news that his son had died.

"There was no sign that he was really ill," he said.

"It just happened out of the blue. We want to raise awareness of it. It’s not something people talk about until it actually happens.

"Isaac was always smiling and always happy and playful. I have really dark moments where I just break down. I’m trying to keep positive."

Georgina, who relies on benefits, is determined to give him the send-off Isaac deserves and is appealing for help paying for the funeral.

She has created a fundraising page with a target of £5,000.

She said: "I don’t believe children should travel in a black hearse for the funeral. I want him to go in a white car and for the funeral to remember him and his life."
