    Actually Sids recommend 6-12mths re having baby sleep in your room

    That's right...my DH is from a part of rural Thailand where co-sleeping is what everyone does. In fact he had never heard of babies sleeping apart from their parents until he met people from western countries. He can't recall anyone he knows having a baby die at home (although several have died in hospital of various illnesses). I do wonder about the matter of bacteria in mattresses mentioned in some posts above - in general, at least in DH's village, people sleep on a mat on their wooden floors, not on a soft mattress.

    Yeah when we bought a new mattress as tempted as we were by a cushy new pillow top mattress we bought a firm mattress because it's our babies sleep space too.

    Also dressing warmly and booting my blankets off in katelyn was in the bed when she was little. I saw the adult onsies in target and thought they'd be perfect for cosleeping lol.

    Nobody seems to want to answer the question...why in other cultures where cosleeping is the norm is there less deaths from SIDS?

    I'd suggests intentional vs unplanned co-sleeping may also be a factor.

    The problem with studying something like SIDS is you are trying to isolate factors for a death when none of these factors occur in isolation.

    Nope. Never said I was.
    Fwiw my first was ff- I didn't have a choice. But it has been shown that bf can help prevent SIDS and you recommend stopping that a full year before the foremost health authority in the world and claim there is no danger. My point was that we all make our own risk assessments.

    And just so you are aware, my profession does indeed deal with investigating deaths, among other things.

    If you don't want to co sleep, that's cool. But it's not appropriate or necessarily accurate for you to imply those that do are risking their children's lives. I'm sure you don't like such accusations levelled at you in RIC threads.
