Carly Wowk, 21, was downstairs with her younger brother when her partner Kiowa Wood screamed for help.
After bolting into baby Zara's room, she discovered her daughter was limp and blue laying face down in her padded 'snuggle bed'. Carly and Kiowa, also 21, made the agonising decision for doctors to stop CPR after discovering their daughter had been left severely brain damaged when she suffocated.
They were then able to spend seven precious hours cuddling her after she died. The young couple, from Canberra, Australia, are now speaking out to raise awareness since Zara's death in November in a bid to ban cot liners - which they believe are the reason Zara suffocated.
