Don't know if this article/news report has been shared here or not yet. Thought I'd pass it along. It's an investigative report on bedsharing/breastfeeding.<br><br><a href="http://www.fox6now.com/news/witi-100503-bed-sharing,0,7099533.story" target="_blank">http://www.fox6now.com/news/witi-100...,7099533.story</a>

It's ridiculous to make bedsharing illegal.<br><br>
But it's also equally ridiculous to not be aware of negative risk factors if you want to bedshare, (eg. sedating medications/substances, obesity, smoking, etc).

What bothers me is that the mother was drunk, and irresponsible, but now all bedsharing is supposedly "wrong".<br><br>
I mean, if a parent was driving a car drunk with their infant in the car, and they died, people wouldn't say that taking your child for a car ride was wrong. They'd just say that driving drunk was wrong.
