Co-Sleeping is Safe

I wanted everyone to know that I co-sleep with my five year old son, and I have since he was a newborn baby. In fact, he and I have never slept apart in the entire time he has been alive. I know it's safe. Millions of families around the world know it's safe and have co-slept for millennia. Yet, there are forces out there who want people to believe that it is not safe so that they can sell more stuff -- cribs, cradles, bassinets, and of course bottles (since forcing your baby to sleep in another room makes breastfeeding a lot harder, and often pushes women to use bottles and formula to make the baby "sleep through the night"). The crib and formula manufacturers are colluding with the government and the medical establishment to try to outlaw co-sleeping.

If you have co-slept, please do this survey to help support safe co-sleeping.
