smart parents place their babies on the stomach , sheep who listen mainstream bull shit on the back . then sheep babies can’t develop normally , their sheep parents going nuts from listing their babies cry , sometimes causing sheep and goat separating . And how about sids link to just simple vaccine that little babies body could not survive . You all lost your minds , common sense and become truly idiots puppets . if one day daddy government will tell that safest for baby stay on their head most of the sheep will listen . if not they will play PR video clip on the news how somewhere baby suffocate because parents didn’t place on the head position sleep . even in yoga baby position is called tummy position. so long sheeps enjoy government bullying don’t forget shots and multi aluminum vitamins if your babies still survive take it and place under ultra sound make a long video for uploading on youtube .

Why would you want to sleep away from your newborn? Keeping them in a separate room is highly selfish shouldn't bring them to this world if you're going to think about yourself! It's only a few years until their safe to sleep alone. You'll wake up regardless to feed and change so why keep them away as they may not be able to cry for help if their unable to breathe!

its just common sense to keep your baby near you(also biologically and hormonally sound), but society has been duped by the medical/professional complex so long, they just don't know what side is up anymore.

I agree you should keep your baby in your room. My wife and I actually have a side sleeper and always keep him right next to us, and usually one of us is away because I work nights. However, your point about "not be able to cry for help if THEY"RE (not their) unable to breathe" is not a well thought out point, because a baby CANNOT cry if they can't breathe.

We all know sids is from vaccines. All sids babies just got vaccines 48 or less hour ago. Watch vaxxed videos stories from the road. It a sad truth. vaccines cause sids. This is the mystery, which has been solved.
Geese Beemps (5 months ago)
... not true, lol. Plenty of anecdotal evidence from people who’s babies passed away from sids without any form of vax recently

I 100% agree with you!!!

The Lifenest crib mattress and the Lifenest mattress for bassinet are breathable to reduce the suffocation hazard if the baby accidentally rolls over onto the stomach. The Lifenest mattress also prevents Flat Head syndrome (plagiocephaly) and bald spots.

I live in Hong Kong & I didn't know until I saw this. doctors, nurses never told us about this SIDS.
Sol Ti dont let this scare you. babies sleep on their tummies. life nest will help

but the surgeon told me to let me sleep on his stomach while im awake and paying attention and on his back at night

The key is to place the baby on its back in a well insulated room and leave it to sleep for 8 hrs. Let is cry itself back to sleep in the night. Get a good nights sleep.

horrible parenting advice
Cece Ruben (11 months ago)
You have to fees a newborn every two hours thats like starving them
Ken Grace OLawore (11 months ago)
cruciferousvegetable too bad
Lo U (1 year ago)
Horrible parenting advice. You either don't have kids or they were raised horribly and have major insecurity issues. I feel sorry for your kids if you actually have any.

I think sleeping in the same room as the parent and/or sleeping in the same bed is good but with one exception: There's some significant attachment and habit that can develop that can be difficult to break for when they should be sleeping on their own.

I agree, I did not let my children sleep in my bed as babies. They had their own nursery and comfortable crib. But with baby monitor so I heard every sound and creak of the crib. My children never had a problem going to bed on time in their own room even as toddlers. If you start them out in bed with you, you are going to have a scared, insecure fit throwing child when it is time to get them into their own bed. Not good for a marriage either. Children and adults need their own room. After a child has learned to sleep in their own room then an occasional sleep with he parents is not a problem.
