It's really sad when things are taken so grossly out of context. Rubbish like this article has the potential to frighten would-be bedsharers out of an immensly satisfying experience.
Why don't any of these people mention the recommendations for safe bed-sharing and put incidents like suffocation into some context - like maybe the parent was drunk or under the influence of drugs. And that sure isn't SIDS.
Just on the anti co-sleeping articles - I was given the book 'On becoming Babywise' by a complete stranger who overheard me tell someone else that my DD didn't sleep very well. The book is the biggest load of cr@p I have ever read in my whole life. It devotes a section to bed-sharing and how unsafe it is. Pah-lease...where's Gary Ezzo's qualification to publish a book on this topic?
No-one knows what causes SIDS - that's the whole point. They DON'T KNOW. Ugh. I feel a lot safer knowing that my DD is right next to me where I can hear and feel her.
Sorry - *stepping off my soap box now...*
