    I never co slept with DD as she was our first and i was just too paranoid. With baby #2 i may do on occasion. I do think idea of co sleeping is lovely and seems so natural. Putting baby in a cot is risky too if u dont follow sids guide lines

    The coroner must in some way be on the right track... the 4 deaths being investigated weren't just a figment of his/her imagination.

    But were they practicing safe sleeping arrangements or where the parents taking drugs/alcohol where they sleeping on firm beds or couches? Were the babies formula fed or breastfed? All of those things increase the risks. Safe co sleeping is safer for the baby than the baby sleeping in another room. You might find the article I posted interesting

    Esp this bit

    Often news stories talk about “another baby dying while cosleeping” but they fail to distinguish between what type of cosleeping was involved and, worse, what specific dangerous factor might have actually been responsible for the baby dying. A specific example is whether the infant was sleeping prone next to their parent, which is an independent risk factor for death regardless of where the infant was sleeping. Such reports inappropriately suggest that all types of cosleeping are the same, dangerous, and all the practices around cosleeping carry the same high risks, and that no cosleeping environment can be made safe.

    Nothing can be further from the truth. This is akin to suggesting that because some parents drive drunk with their infants in their cars, unstrapped into car seats, and because some of these babies die in car accidents that nobody can drive with babies in their cars because obviously car transportation for infants is fatal. You see the point.

    This, exactly this.

    I'm so tired of hearing people say they heard of a baby who died from SIDS because they were smothered. Do you realise what you're saying?

    What about all the deaths from SIDS that don't occur when co-sleeping?

    All these four deaths prove is that SIDS can occur during co-sleeping. They don't prove that co-sleeping was the cause of death; and how could it be when so many SIDS deaths occur with babies in their own bed?

    I've been in the ER trying to resuscitate a 4 month old whose mother fell asleep with him on her chest, on a sofa. He slipped between her body and the back cushions and when she woke up, he wasn't breathing.

    He didn't make it. And yes, this would be classified as a fatal sleep accident rather than SIDS.

    The guidelines are there for a reason. The SIDS council does make some additional recommendations for families who wish to co-sleep, but the safest place for babies to sleep is in their own sleep space.

    I'm sure that family would do anything to have their little boy back.

    I totally disagree with this comment. It may be true for formula fed infants but not for breastfed infants

    And what about the times when bed sharing with a baby has SAVED their life?This happened to a hubber only fairly recently. She realised her baby wasn't breathing. There had been no coughing or choking noises to alert her - if she hadn't have been on the spot things could have had a very different outcome.

    I'm not sure how that is relevant? A baby can still be smothered in the bed whether they are bf or ff. Unless I have misunderstood you?
