This is the first and most complete book for making sane and safe decisions on how and
where your family sleeps, backed by the latest research—truly a helpful guide for families that
may revolutionize our contemporary conversation about nights and naps. Sweet Sleep explains how and why many breastfeeding mothers can bedshare responsibly. The heart of the book is the “Safe Sleep Seven” – seven criteria that create that level of safety. These clear criteria will offer reassurance to many mothers and give all mothers a way to evaluate the risk in their own situation. Preparing her bed for bedsharing – whether she plans to bedshare or not – is a mother’s first childproofing job because sleep happens, starting on Night One.
