Co-Sleeping: Facts & Expert Opinions
This is part 2 of a 4-5 (?) part post series on Co-Sleeping. If you missed the first, please check out Co-Sleeping: My Story.
By now you know I’m a tired, tired hypocrite, who is advocating for co-sleeping, but has not actually co-slept. Other than my own personal opinions & feelings, there is a ton of science supporting co-sleeping. So much so that The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) now encourages room-sharing (or co-sleeping on a separate surface) in its policy regarding SIDS prevention. “Room sharing is a form of co-sleeping and it is known that roomsharing decreases an infants chances dying by a third of one half compared with babies sleeping alone.” http://cosleeping.nd.edu/frequently-asked-questions/#33
