What a great article. This line sums it up nicely and is so true:
"When done safely, mother-infant cosleeping saves infants lives and contributes to infant and maternal health and well being."

Thanks for sharing.

Very good article! Finally something that shows there are usually underlying reasons for cosleeping deaths...I hate reading all these news stories saying "see cosleeping is dangerous!!!!!" when it's something else that really caused this. I'm going to share this on facebook

I feel the same way...he's out growing his bassinet, but can't fit his crib in the room....I'm not sure what to do...I may just sleep in his room as I'm just not ready to sleep with him in his room all by himself!! Makes me sick just thinking about it!!

Ooh I never thought of that... He's in a travel 'nest' at the moment which is a lot wider than a moses basket but is getting too small but I might do some measuring and see if a proper travel cot would fit - cheers for the idea, and it would be a good transition to cot too
