The Dangers of Bed Sharing: Keep Your Infant(s) Safe
What is Bed Sharing?
Bed sharing, also known as co-sleeping, is the practice of letting infants sleep in the bed of a parent or caregiver. Although thought to help establish parent-child bonding and with breastfeeding, bed sharing can be dangerous. Sharing a bed with your infant will raise the risks of suffocation, S.I.D.S. (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), and other injuries or accidents. The risk of co-sleeping outweigh the benefits. Learn more information.
