I also think the guidelines are realistic and they don't think parents are morons. They have found ways to decrease the incidences of sids, I don't think there's really a way to tiptoe around it when there are lives at stake.
I think the guidelines are extremely straightforward, a lot of people deliberately ignore them though And there are guides on safe cosleeping.

Vicpark - I've noticed from a few threads that you are quite against any non 'traditional' western sleep settings ie musical beds and bed sharing. Why is it?
Many other cultures still co sleep as it's their norm and their incidence of SIDS and suffocation is negligible. Your push to charge parents with a crime when their child dies as result of negligence should go both ways. Parents who put their newborn in a different room, ff instead of bf, or break any guideline should also be charged. Do you think that is viable?
I'm not having a go at you- I just can't fathom the origin of your thought process.

ETA The realistic quote was in regards to what actually happens, that parents do get exhausted, that it is not always realistic to say that they will breastfeed and then put their baby into a cot, instead of encouraging them not to co-sleep they would be better off promoting the safe way to do it.

Someone was charged with manslaughter for not having adequate pool fencing. I think it'd be hard to prove with your example VicPark but it wouldn't be far off and I agree it is negligent on their part if their baby died because they were off their head and cbfed moving their baby off their bed.
