The risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is five times higher when parents sleep with their infant, a new study finds.
British researchers noted that bed-sharing increases the risk for SIDS even if parents do not drink, use illegal drugs or smoke. They advised that rates of SIDS, which is a major cause of infant death in developed countries, would drop dramatically if parents did not sleep with their babies.
