The ones they investigated occured while bed sharing! And they investigated sids AND sleep accidents which all these recommendations come under. What are people not understanding? They are not just talking about SIDS why are people so fixated on that? The coroner made recommendations for better education, a more uniform approach and message about safe sleeping because there are so many mixed messages, and he is in line with sids recommendations about cot sleeping in parents rooms for the first 6-12months. He didn't recommend bed sharing if you're a smoker, if your exhausted, if you're obese, if you're influenced under drugs/alcohol. Do any of these apply to you?
I didn't have to get up to either of my babies either, they were in a bassinett and cot next to my bed where I could reach for them. Putting them in my bed instead wouldn't have made me less tired.
Well we are all different and it did make me less tired, otherwise i wouldn't have bothered to co-sleep.
