New parents often worry about their babies’ sleep. Is bedsharing safe or does it increase the risk of SIDS? Is sleep training safe or is it harmful? When should babies start sleeping through the night? Parents and practitioners need evidence-based advice, not hype and scare tactics. Infant sleep location continues to be a controversial topic. Health authorities recommend that babies sleep on separate surfaces, but the majority of families sleep with their babies at least part of the time. Health care providers are often trapped between what they are allowed to say to parents and what parents are actually doing. Praeclarus Press proudly announces the Safe Infant Sleep Conference.
