Throughout history and across cultures, sleeping with your baby has been the norm. Yet, in our modern world, the practice is fraught with questions, fear, and guilt. In Safe Infant Sleep, a globally recognized cosleeping authority explores why health professionals broadly recommend against all forms of cosleeping, shares the latest scientific research on the benefits of the practice, and helps you determine the best cosleeping arrangement for your family—from breastsleeping to room sharing. Pediatrician Jay Gordon writes "This is the most important book you will ever buy or give as a gift to new parents." Doctor and popular health consultant William Sears says "Safe Infant Sleep is a must-read for every expectant and new parent, and belongs in the required reading library of every babycare advisor."
