Coroner blames co-sleeping, but what about the smoking , drugs and alcohol?

Coroner blames co-sleeping for baby’s death.

Co-sleeping is as safe or safer for baby than sleeping alone. The ‘experts’ who say otherwise are either ignorant of the scientific evidence, or ignoring it because of their own prejudices.

In this case, the parents and baby weren’t even in bed – they were on the sofa. So Mr Kelly – what has this case got to do with co-sleeping?

What is not safe is smoking, and taking awareness altering drugs such as alcohol or cannabis when bed-sharing or indeed at any time when with a baby or young child.

To lose a child is devastating, but as to why this baby died – the answer is simple. His parents were drunk.
