I'm going to be ill.
My state, in an effort to "educate" parents, has started a new tv commercial campaign. The first commercial was about drowning in a pool. Ok, fair enough.
They have 2 more. The other one..about drowning also..this time in a bathtub instead of pool. Ok, great...let's get drowning awareness out there

The third one...is against co-sleeping!! A mother suffocates her infant while sleeping with her on a couch. (also note she is in almost a "breastfeeding" position..doubly rotten of them!!!) That in itself ***might*** be acceptable, since sleeping on a couch with an infant isn't really recommended...but the tagline at the end....

ARE YOU READY??????

"NEVER SLEEP WITH AN INFANT.

EVEN FOR A MOMENT.

BECAUSE A MOMENT IS ALL IT TAKES.
FOR AN INFANT TO SUFFOCATE"

Go here

and you have the option to "see the commercials" on the right side.

UGH! That's not even a fair scenario. Maybe "Don't sleep with an infant on a couch." Sickening.

I just watched it. How horrible. First of all she was all wrapped in a blanket and the mom was holding her in both arms and there are tons of pillows. Way different than sleeping in an adult bed.
