The mothers were not accused of smothering their child on purpose. The child was with the parents in the bed and the idea was that the mother must have rolled over the child in her sleep and smothered her that way.

Probably it was Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, as was suggested to you, but they didn't know about that back then.
