    I feel i was more danger to my child being exhausted and overwhelmed by insisting on having her in her own bed when she clearly wanted to be with me vs co-sleeping and both of us getting a much better sleep (and thus not being exhausted anymore).
    Different stokes for different folks. I did read up on the SIDS guidelines before i co-slept and followed them, i did it safely.

    33/72 infants died while sharing a sleep surface, which equates to 45.8%, meaning that majority (54.2%) died whilst not co-sleeping!

    Like I said, I didn't have to get up to them either, I had them in a cot beside my bed.

    The coroner didn't make a direct statement saying there is a clear link between bed sharing and sids. He said:
    "Caregiver/infant sharing of a sleep surface, beds, sofas, mattresses and armchairs, increases the risk of infant death from a fatal sleep accident and may increase the risk of infant death from SIDS."
    He is very clear about possible causes of sids and possible contributing factors but does not make a clear link. He didn't say "co-sleeping is dangerous and is a cause of sids" I didn't get what you're getting from these articles.

    What is this and where is it from? Did the coroner use this information when making his findings and recommendations? I'm confused why you posted this.

    We never co-slept when dd & ds were infants, but i have had them in a cot/bassinet in the same room. I am a very heavy sleeper and so is dh, so i preferred not to have them in bed with us at a young age. Now that dd is nearly 4 I don't mind her coming into bed after dh goes to work.. it's our special time, and i'm more comfortable with the fact she's alot bigger, so im not worried about the whole deep sleeping as much.

    The four cases he examined were babies who died from SIDS while co-sleeping. His conclusion was that co-sleeping was inherently dangerous. What further link do you need?

    It is part of the report, it was in my previous link to The Age article

    Oh boy. They didn't just look at these 4 deaths to make the recommendations. They looked at many factors that included sleep accidents.

    I don't know what the point of just posting that sentence means and it wasn't quoted? We know babies die in cots, couches and other surfaces, I didn't see anyone say babies only die of sids while co-sleeping? Safe sleeping practices include how to safely sleep a baby in a cot. In their parents rooms, with no toys or obstructions, head uncovered, on their backs.
    So what's the point?
