Sleeping with baby's dangerous *possible trigger topic*

What an idiot. I don't think 4 babies is enough to make him an expert. Wonder what the outcome would be in countries where cosleeping is the norm and the rate of SIDS is lower than here!

I wonder if he was referring to all bed sharing or just in instances where the sids recommendations were not followed, ie. in relation to the amount of bedding, extreme tiredness, alcohol/drug consumption, etc.
Also noted that he said about bed sharing on a sofa.. That's against SIDS guidelines anyway isn't it?

There is no known cause for SIDS (although of course we know how to reduce the risk), so if the baby dies because of a 'fatal sleep accident'...well then it's not really SIDS, in that case the cause would be 'asphyxiation' or similar.

Yes, sleeping with a baby dangerously, i.e. in the examples he gave, is dangerous.
Sleeping with baby in accordance with SIDS guidelines is a different kettle of fish.

I get annoyed when the headlines read: babies must sleep alone (as I saw today). No, the person saying don't cosleep is also saying babies should be in their parents room, just not in their bed.

I've always wondered when it becomes okay to cosleep. According to this article around 12 months. Good to know. I wouldn't put DD in my bed before 6 months because I was scared. Now at 10 months I'm giving in occasionally.

I was trying to talk to a friend about safe co-sleeping the other day and another friend of hers steps in a says "you tell that to all the woman who have rolled on and killed their babies."
clearly some people believe these articles that any form of co-sleeping is dangerous
I know co-sleeping isn't for everyone but mothers should know all the facts and then make the decision

Freak I hate it when they publish this fodder. Like the people who do cosleep don't cop enough flak from well meaning (uneducated) people without the fear being flamed!
