AAP SIDS Guidelines is the focus. Below is a Discussion Assignment I wrote that can be used for reference on my position.
The AAP SIDS Guidelines are, for the most part, written following “best practice” except for a portion of step 4 (Room-sharing with the infant on a separate sleep surface is recommended).
The Discussion section in (Blair et al., 2014) states:
There was no significantly increased risk for SIDS associated with bed-sharing in the absence of sofa-sharing, alcohol consumption and smoking. In infants aged less than 3 months the same proportion of SIDS infants and control infants bed-shared in the absence of these hazardous conditions and the difference was not significant. Conversely, bed-sharing in the absence of other hazards was significantly protective for infants older than 3 months; a finding that was unexpected and has not been previously reported to our knowledge. (Blair et al., 2014, para. 1)
An important implication of our findings is that to give blanket advice to all parents never to bed-share with their infant does not reflect the evidence. (Blair et al., 2014, para. 4)
Ultimately, the Safe Sleep Guidelines do not necessarily work in the best interest of the exclusively breastfeeding mother and her baby or babies. There is a reason the Safe Sleep Seven exists. Breastfeeding mothers need to be close to their babies. Thankfully, Mother Nature’s design is to benefit the breastfeeding dyad by keeping their circadian rhythms in sync and giving the mother a heightened awareness of her baby when close. Since the baby can smell their mother from a certain distance away it helps them to be aware of their food source, and wake frequently to breastfeed. A mother who is constantly having to get up to get her baby in a separate space would put her child at more risk due to lack of sleep. I have always felt the AAP Guideline for Safe Sleep was more fear mongering.
