The CPA has recently released a statement saying that sleep sharing is dangerous and infants under 1 year of age should never sleep in their parent's bed. You can find the release here: <a href="http://www.caringforkids.cps.ca/babies/SafeSleep.htm" target="_blank">http://www.caringforkids.cps.ca/babies/SafeSleep.htm</a><br><br>
Please, please write and encourage them to change their views!!!!

Definitely! There's a back issue of mothering from a couple years ago that had a whole bunch of articles about cosleeping... I've borrowed it from the library a couple times and one article shows how cribs are actually twice as dangerous... anyone know what issue it is?

So, they say that co-sleeping is having the baby's crib in your room. And they recommend that. Most of us use co-sleeping to mean having the baby in your bed. So that's going to be majorly confusing. I've never used the term bed-sharing before, which is what they use.<br><br>
And they say never to nap or sleep with your baby. Can you imagine never having experience a shared nap with your baby? Heck, can you imagine managing to stay awake?<br><br>

I think this<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Never nap or sleep with your baby or let your baby sleep alone on a couch, sofa or armchair</td>
</tr></table></div>
means Never nap or sleep with your baby (or let your baby sleep alone) on a couch, sofa or armchair. in other words not on a couch, sofa or armchair.<br><br>
not that I agree with the rest of it. but just to clarify <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
