Milwaukee, remove the fear mongering co-sleeping ads!


Co sleeping can be done very safely and is actually widely beneficial to a newborn baby. Co sleeping can help regulate a newborn's breathing cycle, reduce stress due to separation at night and help facilitate breastfeeding between mother and infant. All of these factors drastically help reduce SIDS. Various doctors, collegiate professors and other professionals have conducted studies that have yielded such results. If Milwaukee wants to help save a baby, it should educate parents on safe co sleeping practices and not vilify a practice that is common across the majority of the planet and is one of the most natural parenting practices known to mammals.
