    It's on the news

    I hate how bed sharing gets a bad rap because of certain people's opinion.

    DD and I will continue to sleep together... We love it!

    IMO:
    I bed share with my son, only for 1-2 hours when DF goes to work, 5 days a week.
    DS and I also cuddle on the couch.
    My issue is, my DS will sleep for HOURS in my arms compared to on his own.

    I will continue to do this for my son.

    Smothering isn't SIDs.

    Breastfed babies tend to sleep in a different position to FF babies they rouse more easily as well and BF mothers tend to not take medication that causes drowsiness or drink as much alcohol. All of these things have an impact on co sleeping practices.

    Sids and kids Victoria supported the decision, was in court and campaigned for it. The coroners findings are significant and they matter.
    The news has a duty of care to report the finding and report it to the public, so they can re assess their sleeping arangements and make sure they are doing it safely because people aren't aware and they don't know how dangerous it can be. Babies do die in their parents bed, the recommendation is to have the baby in your room, with no toys or obstructions in their cot and to have a safe, clean sleeping enviroment.
    That is the safest recommended sleeping arrangement by sids for your baby, and I would never ignore that over someone telling me on bubhub otherwise.

    I don't know, whether it's cosleeping or homebirthing or anything else, the only duty of the news is to attract an audience and obtain high ratings. Which they do by sensationalising emotive topics and promoting discord amongst the general (bub hub) population...

    You have a study to support this ... Or it's your opinion?

    Breastfeeding halves the risk

    Studies show no increased risk of bed-sharing with parents who don't smoke.

    Hmm, I don't have anything against co sleeping at all. But it *can* be dangerous, babies *have* died from suffocation recently from it. Why is that offensive? It is the truth.

    Babies *have* died in cots from SIDS too, that's also the truth
