She said he was “perfectly fine and happy with no health problems” and wasn’t sick when he went to bed.

Kayleigh, from Skelmersdale, Lancs, added: “No parent should ever go through the pain of a losing a child”.

“ABSOLUTE WORLD”

Paying tribute to her son, she told the Liverpool Echo: “If I could be with you now I would and I don’t know how I’m going to carry on without you.

“No pain will ever come close to the pain of losing you my Arlo, you are my absolute world and I love you more than life baby boy.

“If I could be with you now I would and I don’t know how I’m going to carry on without you.

No pain will ever come close to the pain of losing you my Arlo, you are my absolute world and I love you more than life baby boy.

“Mummy and daddy are heartbroken and lost for words. Forever my baby, my angel Arlo forever.”

She said she will love him “forever” and said she will think about him “every minute of every day” before adding: “There will always be a huge part of me missing.”

Kayleigh has now set up a Just Giving page to raise funds for the Alder Hey children’s bereavement centre and the Sudden Unexaplined Death in Childhood Foundation.

“FINE AND HAPPY”

They have already raised more than £2,000.

She wrote on the page: “On the 06.08.19 at 8:30am I went into my two-year-old’s bedroom to check on him, to then find he had sadly passed away.

“He went to bed perfectly fine and happy, he was not sick and did not have any health problems.


“No parent should ever go through the pain of losing a child.

“Alder Hey bereavement centre is a charity run organisation and have been amazing, we would not have gotten through it without them.

“Arlo was the happiest, most loving little boy and any donations in his memory will be split between the bereavement centre and SUDC (sudden unexpected death in children).”
