Neighbours said they heard noises coming from the property in the early hours of Saturday.

Detective Inspector Matthew Zimmer said police were co-operating with the mother of the child and her immediate family.

"The child's death is being treated as suspicious," he said.

Neighbours told The Newcastle News Ms Graham and her three children had only moved into the property three days earlier, picking up and leaving from another address in the middle of the night on May 10.

Police are waiting on the results of an autopsy to establish the cause of the baby's death.

"We're hoping that examination will identify injuries the child may have suffered which may have contributed to the child's death," Detective Inspector Zimmer said.

"We are still trying to establish the circumstances surrounding the child's death so we are speaking to people who have had contact with the child in the days and hours leading up to the child's death.

"We're also asking any members of the community who know the family or who have had contact or interactions with the family, if they can contact Hunter Valley Police or Crime Stoppers."

There is no suggestion of wrongdoing on the part of the mother.

No charges have been laid.
