Anyone reading this and considering bedsharing, do some research and don’t take what is said in this article at face value. It isn’t accurate.
Another factor that correlated with infant health is receiving a CranioSacral Therapy treatment within the first 24 hours of birth. The hospital in Maine that instituted that protocol took the incidence of SIDS deaths down to zero, in their little Ones. (Sorry I don’t have the citation off-hand; I just remember the story very clearly, from one of my first CranioSacral Therapy classes with the Upledger Institute in the early 90’s. Dr. Upledger’s research colleague in maybe the early/mid-80’s (?) was a physician at a hospital in Maine, and the story came from his experiences there.)
