Since the beginning of time, women have slept with their babies. There was no fancy word for it before there were nurseries and bassinets. It was just called sleeping. Now it’s called co-sleeping and it’s apparently as dangerous (according to Milwaukee) as letting your infant sleep with a butcher’s knife.
What’s that old saying about extremism reducing readiness?
Soooo. This is just dumb to me on a common sense level. We are not the first civilization to bear children. Do you know how many billions of women have slept with their child beside them? How, Milwaukee, is that a leading factor in SIDS, which by definition “remains unexplained after a thorough forensic autopsy and a detailed death scene investigation”? So. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, which is unexplained and unexpected….is a result of co-sleeping? Seems like a name change is order, then.
Milwaukee has a high infant mortality rate, which *is* a problem. So they made some posters comparing a sleeping parent to a butcher’s knife. I think you’re taking King Solomon out of context.
