The baby dying after covering it with a heavy blanket

A: If the blanket that his mother used covered his face, she must offer Kaffarah for involuntary manslaughter, because this appears to have been the cause of the baby’s death. The Kaffarah is to free a believing slave and if she is unable to do that, she must perform Sawm for two consecutive months, i.e. 60 sixty days. If she is ill now, she must perform the Sawm when she recovers from her illness.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
