    Yep, none of the above.

    I would have been exhausted if I *didn't* bed share though.

    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 would think most new parents are exhausted and do fall asleep while feeding their babies. You can't educate yourself and say well..... I just won't be exhausted, because bed sharing doesn't stop a baby waking 10 times a night you know? You will still be tired.

    Not me, no.

    People are fixated on SIDS because the article tried to make a link between co-sleeping and SIDS that we believe doesn't exist.

    Yes I was exhausted but I turned the corner when we moved ds out of the bassinet and into a safe shared sleeping environment.

    Can you quote in the articles where it says that? Because I don't see where the coroner is making a link between co-sleeping and sids, the coroner is very clear that sids has unknown factors, so until they know, the recommendations are xyz.

    Actually it did stop me being exhausted, even though DD was still waking at night because i didn't have to get up to it, i could settle her next to me. As a consequence i was getting a lot more rest and was no longer exhausted.

    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.

    I had plenty of sleep - sleeping when she slept. It may have been broken, but so is the mum's that gets up to her baby. She has just as much chance of being exhausted and falling asleep on a chair which is against SIDS recommendations.

    Well we are all different and it did make me less tired, otherwise i wouldn't have bothered to co-sleep.
