I think it is irresponsible to promote the 'co-sleeping is not safe' message as it makes people think they shouldn't do it so they don't plan for it and when they are exhausted and just 'fall into it' it is unsafe. There should be an education program on safe co-sleeping so people can make an educated choice that is safe and works for them.

I didn't 'plan' on it either but it didn't take long to see it was what I was meant to be doing and you bet your @rse that I did my research and made sure it was done properly. If there wasn't such a culture in the western world that you don't sleep with your babies then people would be more prepared from the get go and I think we would find there were LESS accidental deaths.

However, I just wanted to emphasise the point that what we all want is to have our babies healthy, happy, and *alive*. If we can do that by being informed by objective evidence rather than gut feelings or unsupported opinions, so much the better.

Is anyone actually reading lily of the nile's posts? She isn't saying you shouldn't co-sleep, she is saying if you do you should follow guidelines. Why is that bad? What is so bad about guidelines? They have them for *everything*. Sometimes I think that some of you see attacks on your choices when there really isn't any.
