Any death of a child is a tragedy and one that any parent and health professional would want to prevent. Sleeping alongside a baby increases the risks to the child - including death.
We currently recommend that doctors, midwives and nurses should warn parents of the risks of sleeping alongside a baby in a bed.
The safest place for a baby to sleep is in a cot in their parents' room for the first six months.

The Oklahoma medical examiner has confirmed that the 51 deaths included 20 children.
Research from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has found that the number of cot deaths in the UK could be reduced if parents did not share beds with their children.
Authors examined data from five studies on cot death, including the records of 1,472 cot death cases and 4,679 control cases.
Research showed that babies who slept in their parents' beds had a five-fold increase of cot death compared to children who slept in a cot in the parents' room.

Although it is clear that smoking and drinking greatly increase the risk of cot death while bed sharing, our study shows that there is in fact an increased risk for all babies under three months who bed share, even if their parents do not smoke or drink.
If parents were made aware of the risks of sleeping with their baby, and room sharing was instead promoted in the same way that the 'Back to Sleep' campaign was promoted 20 years ago to advise parents to place their newborn infants to sleep on their backs, we could achieve a substantial reduction in cot death rates in the UK.

Yahoo is set to make photo-sharing site Flickr "awesome" again, as the company revealed it has redesigned the website.
The news comes as Yahoo announced its $1.1 billion (£723m) takeover of blogging platform Tumblr.
Speaking at an event in New York City, Yahoo said it was now offering Flickr users one terabyte of online storage for free, enough to store more than 500,000 images at a resolution common to most smartphones.
The company also revealed the new website will emphasise photos rather than text or white space, creating bigger pictures, shared in full resolution.
