This was aired Friday evening on WBUR NPR station. I just started listening to it online a few minutes ago so I can't tell you yet how it is.

Here's the link:

It is an hour show and one of two topics so it should be about a half hour.

Did anyone hear the show. I just heard the last couple of minutes.
What were the caller responses and how did cosleeping come off?

Someone else started a thread on this when it aired Jan 17. And someone (thanks, jean!) posted a link to the episode online. I was able to listen to it using my RealPlayer. It was wonderful!!!!

There were only two negative calls, at the end. One woman's mother sexually abused her so she is against cosleeping. Well, it should be obvious to anybody that this woman's mother had much bigger problems than cosleeping!! Even had this woman been in a crib, she would have had major issues. The second woman said that she had her baby in bed for the first 6 weeks because she was breastfeeding, but felt that the bed was "her and her husband's space" and so they kicked the baby out to the crib. Almost sounded like she wasn't BFing anymore (at 6 weeks??).

Anyways, the panel was wonderful, the callers were great (I'm surprised they weren't MDC mamas!!) and all in all it was a fabulous show with total positive view on cosleeping!!

Sorry folks. On Point is actually a two hour show and the co-sleeping part is 51 minutes.
