When I read John Rosemond’s article last week I knew his facts about sleep expert Dr McKenna were wrong (seems that is happening a LOT with articles discussing any aspect of AP at the moment). I am delighted to see McKenna has rebutted her…e http://cosleeping.nd.edu/controversies/in-response-to-john-rosemond/ and put the record straight. I use Dr McKenna’s work to support my views in my book, so I knew Rosemond’s article was full of falsehoods. I urge those writing about parenting issues to please check their facts because parents are listening!
This article from The Daily Mail releases new research showing that co-sleeping is best for kids right up to ages three and four.
There is actually a wealth of research that I discuss in my book, to support co-sleeping, yet it rarely makes the headlines in the mainstream. Most parents fear that co-sleeping and SIDS are interlinked and it simply isn’t true. Unless you are grosly overweight, a smoker, or a heavy drinker/drug user the safest, and most desirable, place for your child is right by your side for as long as they want. Many co-sleepers have a family room/bed that accommodates everyone – large and small. Honestly, I find there really isn’t anything nicer than waking up with all my crew snuggled up together – BLISS!
