So now I am watching the news and they go a bit more in dept with the story - the first thing they say is that the woman was high on pot and drunk *and* had given the baby a strong setitive - but what does the rest of the story focus on ............the *DANGERS* of sleeping with your baby WTF!!!!!!!
HELLO! She was HIGH ON DRUGS AND HAD DRUGGED HER BABY!!!! Maybe that was the danger! Of course now they are planning a big story on the dangers of co-sleeping....................Whatever!

since becoming a mother I've learned to really despise how totally STUPID the media can be.
Homeschooling, Homesteading Mama to DD ('02) and DS ('04)
At least they mentioned the drugs,...because sometimes they don't even mention those tid-bits, just blaming the whole thing on cosleeping. What a horrible woman that lady must be. How sad for her children.

I agree, the media are being irresponsible in trumpeting the dangers of co-sleeping rather than the dangers of sedation. But they're also irresponsible in demonizing this mother who made a terrible mistake, and I don't think we should go along with it. I am praying for that mother and for others who are at risk of making the same mistakes.
Mama to a boy EnviroKid 10 years old and a little girl EnviroBaby !
I write about parenting, environment, cooking, and more.
The bulk of my sympathy goes to her babies.
But you're right...my comment about the mom was off topic. My emotions got the best of me.
The media is way off on its overall bias against cosleeping. It's very sad.
