A new research study shows that co-sleeping is best for kids right up to ages three and four.
There is actually a wealth of research that I discuss in my book, to support co-sleeping, yet it rarely makes the headlines in the mainstream. Most parents fear that co-sleeping and SIDS are interlinked and it simply isn’t true. Unless you are grosly overweight, a smoker, or a heavy drinker/drug user the safest, and most desirable, place for your child is right by your side for as long as they want. Many co-sleepers have a family room/bed that accommodates everyone – large and small. Honestly, I find there really isn’t anything nicer than waking up with all my crew snuggled up together – BLISS!
