    If possible of course.

    I don't know of a reason why a baby couldn't sleep in the same room as a parent but I'm sure there are some. Maybe the parents are heavy smokers and think the risk of exposure to the cigarette smoke is worse?

    My 6 month old uses a blanket (against SIDS guidelines) because she has a brace on her legs and doesn't fit into those baby sleeping bags. Sometimes perfect just isn't practicable.

    I was referring to your description of my opinion as "outrageous". I do know the difference between guidelines and the law.

    FTR...I am also entitled to my opinion whether you or anyone else disagree's which you are entitled to do. I'm sure there are others who might just agree with my POV.

    When a person poses a question on a forum they should expect to get a broad range of responses. As per usual though, the ganging up has begun when an opinion (mine in this case) has been deemed to be unacceptable by the BH Judge, jury and executioners!!!

    I'm sorry but it's really uncalled for to suggest parents are borderline cruel for sleeping babies in their own room. You have no idea about other people and their circumstances and why those choose not to have babies room in and whilst it is your opinion it's amazingly judgemental and an unnecessary smack down to numerous parents.

    It does Louise, but that doesn't discount SIDS research that shows a baby sleeping in the same room as a parents for the first 6-12 months minimizes the risk of SIDS. I understand this research wasn't available when you had your babies but it is now. I think it's important for that research to be shared so people can make their own risk assessments. Sharing research and recommendations of what minimizes SIDS risks does not need to be taken offensively.

    Current research shows that SIDS babies go into a deeper sleep than other babies and 'forget' to breath. Being in the same room as their mother helps them regulate their breathing.

    Ok ladies, I haven't read the whole thread but the animosity and offense taken is insane.

    SIDS guidelines are based on research, they're not just given willy nilly, they're based on what they have learned about babies that have died from SIDS and what we can do to minimize that risk. Yes, there are going to be reasons that you cannot follow them or make your own risk assessment and that doesn't make you negligent. BUT don't fob them off as *just* guidelines. There are people dedicating their lives to trying to figure out why these babies die so that none of us have to experience this pain. They are not *just* guidelines. They are based on research.

    Breastfeeding lowers the risk because breastfed babies tend to not sleep as heavy because they smell their mom, wake more often for feeds, etc. which minimizes the risk. Mothers being unable to breastfeed are not negligent but it doesn't negate what research shows either.

    No one has been offended by the SIDS guidelines @HollyGolightly81. They've been offended by being called "cruel" and "neglectful" for making the choice that for their family it is best for bub to sleep alone. Some of the posts in this thread have been unnecessarily judgemental and unkind. That's why people have been offended.

    I was annoyed by the posts calling them JUST guidelines but also there is definitely a vibe of people getting ****ed off because they are taking offense to people pointing out the guidelines. I know what posts you're referring to but I'm referring others.

    Yes...and that goes both ways as far as I'm concerned.

    I never once said anything negative about babies being in the same room or not . I honestly don't care how everyone parents. All I stated was where i put my babies and I was basically told it was neglectful to not share a room. Honestly why can't people just be nice and not attack others for how they choose to parent.

    You're focusing on one post and taking personal offense to it like she directed it at you. She's gone on to explain herself, have you read those posts?
