Nakia Posted February 27, 2012 Share Posted February 27, 2012 I'm so sorry you had to experience that, Nakia. How terrible. Are you allowed to say how the baby suffocated? Like was it due to blankets? Pillows? The mother? It's okay if you can't say. I hear stuff like that and start thinking it's a bad idea to co-sleep, but numerous studies say it's safe. I just don't know. Thank you for that. I can't say any specifics about that case. I have no idea what happened in the hospital case cited above. Don't forget many women may be recovering from the use of meds for labor and delivery, may be taking higher potency pain meds, they may be obese, they may be sleep-deprived, etc. Those things are all thought to increase cosleeping related deaths. I can understand hospitals having a policy on no cosleeping, but I also think a responsible and informed parent can make a decision to cosleep. The vast majority of women on the postpartum floor are obese, taking narcotics, and sleep deprived. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
