    Default Co-sleeping increases SIDS risk five-fold

    http://globalnews.ca/news/579535/stu...-infant-death/

    Interesting new study - I personally don't bed share but I have no problem with those that do.

    Well bed-sharing might increase the risk of a baby being rolled on or suffocated, but that's not SIDS.

    I would also argue that Japan has very high % bed sharing, very low SIDS rate.

    Leduc says more known risks include putting a baby in any other position than their back when sleeping, smoking, use of alcohol, use of drugs or the use of formula bottle feeding.

    Did she/he seriously just put formula feeding in with the likes of alcohol and drugs! Wtf !!!

    Well breastfeeding reduces the risk of SIDS, so ultimately formula increases the risk.

    No, but BF'd babies have less risk of SIDS than FF'd babies. I read it that the writer was just listing factors that can increase SIDS risk, not comparing giving drugs/alcohol to a baby in the same vein as formula.

    Meh I find it stupid. The fact is they don't know what causes SIDS. No bloody idea.

    And whilst they don't know what causes it, there are things you can do to reduce it. Not stupid, IMO!

    Listing things like smoking, drugs and alcohol and in the same sentence as formula. 3 things, including tummy sleeping which we know are all dangerous for babies and having in that same sentence formula bottle feeding.
    There are many other possible things that cause SIDS , over heating, placement in the cot etc.
    So I found the structure of that sentence really stupid !!!

    Some considerations.

    http://evolutionaryparenting.com/pre...ase-carpenter/

    Personally, I wouldn't have survived DD unless we bed shared. We did it safely. DF slept in a different bed so I had the queen bed to share with DD. Blankets/doona were only ever up to my waist and I wore a jumper during winter. DD slept in either a sleeping bag or was swaddled. I woke in the same position I feel asleep in. DD fed a lot and she insisted on physical contact. I recognised this within 24 hours of her being born so it wasn't something I had conditioned her. She would often feed every hour or two for an hour at a time during the night, sometimes longer. An average day feed took 4 hours for the first 3 to 4 months. Mastering the lying down feeding position meant I got sleep. Sleep deprivation is a form of torture.

    SIDS scared the bejeezes out of me for the first few months. One night when DD was a newborn I was so scared of SIDS that I sat up pretty much all night and watched TV and just held her in my arms whilst she fed.
