A six-month-old baby died after his grandmother left him to sleep in a double bed while holidaying on the Kent coast, an inquest heard.
Robin van Reyn was found unresponsive following an afternoon nap on June 24 at around 4pm.
A post-mortem examination revealed Robin, who was visiting Folkestone from Belgium with his mother, was discovered between the linen and the pillows of the bed.
During an inquest at Archbishop's Palace in Maidstone today, coroner Patricia Harding recorded a conclusion of sudden unexpected death in infancy.
She said: “Police were advised by Robin’s grandmother that he had been put to bed at 3.30pm and she thought she heard him crying at around 15 minutes prior to finding him.
“Robin was conveyed to William Harvey Hospital where he sadly died.
"The post mortem hasn’t established a medical cause of death but there is no evidence to prove that this is anything other than a death from natural causes.”
