    HOLBROOK - Navajo County sheriff's officials are investigating the death of a 2-month-old girl whose body was found in a camping trailer just outside of Holbrook in eastern Arizona.

    Chief Deputy Randy Weems says the girl's parents called authorities Tuesday morning to report that she was unresponsive.

    Weems says the girl had been dead for at least a couple of hours, if not days.

    I know some people swear that there's no problem co-sleeping, but it's a bad idea. I don't think it's worth the risk. How could you forgive yourself for something like this?

    I'm new here, but I have to answer this. Co-sleeping properly is safe. In fact, proper co-sleeping lowers the risk of SIDS and has been the norm for humans all over the world until the last hundred years or so. In most parts of the world, it still is. Co-sleeping on a couch, with huge pillows, and while using drugs or alcohol is NOT safe co-sleeping. It's like the difference between driving normally and driving drunk. Just because a drunk parent has an accident and kills their child no one would say that no parent should drive even while sober because drunk driving is dangerous.

    Do you have a link to shoe that co-sleeping lowers the incidence of SIDS? I thought it increased it.

    I've read some reports showing it lowers the risk and other reports showing it increases the risks. I think the difference is it's hard to factor in the type of mattress, having gaps between the mattress bed frame, whether the parent(s) smoke or drink or take any medications, if there are pets or too many people in the bed, etc.

    This is the link to the National Sleep Foundation's write up on co-sleeping:

    https://sleep.org/articles/everything-to-know-about-cosleeping/

    I've been a Registered Polysomnographer (RPSGT) since '99, specializing in pediatric sleep medicine. I always give this link out to anyone who asks about co-sleeping. IME, Pediatric sleep specialists recommend against co-sleeping. However, there are options to allowing baby to share your bed.

    Safety is paramount, IMO. As sleep professionals, we know for a fact that the sleeping brain is not able to properly safeguard infants throughout the night. Heck, a sleepy driver is as dangerous (if not more so) than a drunk driver. That being said, making the decision to co-sleep should not be taken lightly, and is a highly personal decision.

    Welcome to the group, but if I still wouldn't sleep with an infant. Sometimes when the child's a little older you can't avoid it.
