This is a slight overreaction imo. You're taking it so personally when infact these guidelines and recommendations are designed to help and educate parents into safe sleeping habits, parents need to hear it and not become complacent. You may find it perfectly safe, but alot of people don't. I once fell asleep after bf my newborn and woke up with my arm covering her face, that could have been disastrous and it's upsetting to think about. No one is telling YOU what to do, but people need to realise that you can move when your asleep without realising and things can go wrong. What's so hard about putting the baby back in their cots after a feed? I had their bassinetts right next to my bed to make it easier, I never took the chance of falling asleep again.

I'm not a co-sleeper but to say others can't get under my skin we as parents have the right to do what we feel is best for our children, my sister co-slept her DS and now at 5 he will still come in and sleep in her bed and that is just as ok as my DS sleeping in his own bed and always has.
It is not known what causes SIDS my mum tells me when I was a bub the guide lines were very different SIDS has happened both co-sleeping and not I think more guide lines are needed for safe co-sleeping!

Parents need to be educated how to sleep safely, the recommendation is 'in their own cots, in your room, with no toys or obstructions' that's it. They don't know what causes sids, so they make a recommendation on what is the safest method for babies to sleep. It doesn't say in bed with mum because in Japan less babies die of sids while co-sleeping, there could be other factors involved as to why that has nothing to do with where the baby sleeps. So until they know, I would personally follow safe sleeping guidelines.

That is so upsetting about the US and co-sleeping (although not a total shock).
Talk about a nanny state.
