This is a follow-up to yesterday's post and the reason Daddy gets so angry when reading all of these studies/theories regarding the cause of SIDS.
Krous feels that the most optimal sleeping arrangement for a newborn is to sleep on a hard, separate surface next to the parental bed. In this way, the mother can still breastfeed and stay in close proximity for monitoring, but the baby does not risk being suffocated by pillows.So, the whole safe sleep thing does boil down to suffocation and the possibility that tons of research money that is meant to find out what actually causes SIDS is being wasted on telling people to take precautions not to suffocate their own children. Wow! I mean WOW! How in the world can a study talk about SIDS prevention and end with a statement like that?!? Where do I write the check? or better yet, where can I get what they are smoking to role up in that check?
One day there will be a real answer that clearly defines SIDS, and Daddy keeps on searching.
I love you!
