A new report out of Britain finds that over half of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) incidents occur during co-sleeping with an adult or another child. Recent alcohol and drug use by a parent and co-sleeping on couches both play key factors.

I 'think' they mean that a kind of death occurs to the baby during 'bed sharing' not co-sleeping (co-sleeping can be in the same room not bed), with an irresponsible adult that drinks or does drugs.........that's not SIDS (Sudden death infant syndrome) man, WE KNOW why the kid died then......an IDIOT suffocated them.....urghhhh.....i mean sometimes they don't know what they are writing do they?

It was co sleeping that helped us know that our son had a seizure after immunatizations. If he was in a crib in another room...we would have never known! I hate that they are blaming co sleeping for people's stupidity!!!

Who writes these articles? I think that JM should get a refund from this one.

Wiki says:

"Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) or crib death is a syndrome marked by the sudden death of an infant that is unexpected by history and remains unexplained after a thorough forensic autopsy and a detailed death scene investigation."

I dont see how that can be true about accidental overlay from a drunk/intoxicated parent.

It's really sad that JustMommies puts these headlines on their crawl to scare parents yet when you open the article it states that alchohol or drugs are a key factor in the large numbers. Why not state that IN the headline so it doesn't influence people who don't have time, or interest in researching all the facts. It paints cosleeping in a negative and dangerous light when in reality it's not the cosleeping but the poor parenting that led to these babies deaths.

Cosleeping is safe when you're smart about it and use caution, like not sharing blankets with baby, not having excess pillows on the bed, not using drugs, or alchohol when cosleeping or allowing baby to sleep with another sibling. But publishing THAT would be bad why?

Ugh... co-sleeping is NOT what causes SIDS. I think it's funny that they SAY they don't know what causes it, yet constantly come up with things that increase it. If they are suffocated by being smothered while co-sleeping, then we know exactly why they died. Therefore, it's not SIDS, it's being smothered

This article is just absurd.

The headline should read true to the info in the article...in this case that the studies were based on alcohol/drug use by the parent prior to the death. :/ It's misleading and unfair to responsible co-sleeping parents.
