Here at Tesco Loves Baby, we were interested to read the latest parenting news on the cons of sleeping with your baby and its connection to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) says you should not sleep with your baby if you have been drinking, taking drugs, or if you smoke. But researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine found that breastfed babies under three months are five times more likely to die in the night if they share a bed with their parents, even if the parents do not smoke and the mother has not been drinking or taking drugs.
They add that it's fine to comfort or feed your baby in bed, but you should always return them to their cot.
Because of this research, the Department of Health has asked Nice to review its advice for parents.
