Hello, I'm here to ask your help. My name is Laura and I'm trying to raise money to buy a Cold cot also known as a cuddle cot, for those who don't know what this is I'll quickly explain. My Daughter Iona Erin was born a sleeping angel in February 2014 at 41 weeks at West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds. I had never heard of these but I read an article in the newspaper about them and realized how much this would have helped us and future parents who have to go through this especially at West Suffolk Hospital as they do not have any. The kit cost £1500.00 and its a cooling pad and cooler which fits into a moses basket which helps keep the baby cool enabling the baby to stay with the parents. From our experience, if we had a Cold cot our baby girl would have been able to stay with us instead of having to be removed from the ward. The time you have with your angel is limited, EVERY second counts. Having this would have made a huge difference, so my aim is to raise enough money to donate one to West Suffolk Hospital for those having to go through the same heartache we had to. Unfortunately there will be more Sleeping angels in this world and if this will help parents spend more time with their little ones then please donate as much as possible, parents like us thank you from the bottom of our hearts....x
