    Baby deaths from suffocation should not be included in SIDS statistics for a start. Suffocation is not Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. How could any SIDS study possibly be accurate or lead to helping find more information for why babies die of SIDS when suffocation is included in the statistics? We don't include people who have cancer and die in car crashes in statistics on people who die from cancer.
    SIDS has come up with absolutely no concrete evidence or info in how many decades as to why SIDS occurs. If they wish to promote safe sleeping then perhaps they should change their name and call their research safe sleeping not SIDS. If you take out all the advice that reduces suffocation then There is not much in there about SIDS at all.

    This issue must have been quite sensationalised, i've seen it at least 3 times on the newsflash headlines tonight.

    Yes, it's very sad.
    But then in the year 2000, 134 babies died from SIDS. If the majority of them were in cots at the time, perhaps we should ban cots, they're sooooooo dangerous and can really go wrong at times.

    There are guidelines to safe sleeping with babies, your allowed to make your own choices on how you sleep with yours. However, the fact people are encouraging others to ignore them I find irresponsible.
    The guidelines are there for a reason.

    I'm sorry, but I rather think we are missing the point. A dead baby is still dead whether it has died of SIDS or a fatal sleep accident. Sometimes it is not possible to distinguish between the two. Regardless of which agenda you wish to push, a the end of the day this should be about *objectively* looking at the *evidence* to inform parents about the ways to minimise risks. Even one less dead baby is fine by me.

    I find this very difficult to believe. Death by asphyxiation would be easy to establish.

    A dead baby is still dead whether it has died from SIDS or a car accident, however no-one would ever suggest that the two are linked.

    Why on earth was I quoted for this? I said nothing about banning co sleeping, i did it myself!

    They do warn parents about safe sleeping in cots and guidelines are provided for that.

    Regarding coping with DD and sleep? Basically I went nuts. For about the first 9 months if she was awake she was either attached to me or in my arms and I had to be walking around. She didn't do swings, playgyms or anything like that. If I put her in one and would cry hysterically within seconds, even with all the reassurance in the world.

    I didn't get anything done or I managed to figure out how to do things with just one hand.

    We followed safe bed sharing practices, I wore a jumper in winter and blankets were kept no higher than my waist. DF has been sleeping on a blow up mattress on the floor for 2 years now.

    My previous post was responding to your comment about chosing where a baby sleeps. In my case it with either next to me or not at all.

    Anyway, I must go. DD is sleeping next to DF in our room and it's about time for a change of shift.
    Yes I realise you couldn't put your dd in a cot which is why they give safe sleeping guidelines if you must bed share.

    One of the BIGGEST risk factors for SIDS is actually smoking, studies have shown up to 80% of children who died from SIDS were exposed to second hand smoke (on parents clothes as well as directly in area). When Aus averages around 90 SIDS deaths each year that is over 70 babies who have died with a link to smoking. Compare that to 4 linked to co-sleeping and I know what they should be warning parents about. And smoking is a choice!!!!! Where's those headlines?
    They do warn parents about smoking and it's included in the guidelines.
    As for your ff comment, many formula feeding parents are told they're putting their babies at risk for not bf, it doesn't go untold. People on bubhub make sure of that

    So far from reading the other thread, most people fell into co-sleeping because it was easier, not because it was safer. They don't know what causes sids which is why they have safe sleeping guidelines, and they obviously think there is a link with those who bed share and have made a new warning against it. I'd personally rather take that advice then anyones here, I don't think you know something they don't.

    I don't co-sleep and I prefer DD in the cot next to the bed. I always won't co-sleep as I just don't feel in our situation it is worth the risk.

    All this thread has done for me is given me some entertaining reading throughout all 9 pages.
