Hamilton Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Kirsten Mcs­tay

A heart­bro­ken mum who lost her baby last week has urged par­ents to“give your kids a cud­dle tonight as you don’t know when the last time could be”.

Heather Hin­shel­wood’s five­month-old son Jaime Don­nelly passed away last Sun­day at Wishaw Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal af­ter a con­gen­i­tal heart de­fect went un­de­tected.

The 37-year-old from Hamil­ton said the tragedy has changed her life for­ever.

She said: “I was breast­feed­ing Jaime and I am still pro­duc­ing his milk. It re­minds me ev­ery day that he is not here.

“My heart is bro­ken, my life will never be the same.”

Jaime was de­scribed by his fa­ther Mark Don­nelly as a “lit­tle trea­sure” and a “joy to be around”.

Fol­low­ing the dev­as­tat­ing news of Jaime’s death, friends and fam­ily cre­ated a fundrais­ing page to help other fam­i­lies who have lost lit­tle ones.

So far the page has raised over £1500, which Heather de­cided will go to char­ity Bright­est Star.
