The dangers of not co-sleeping

Did you know that there is a lot of research showing co-sleeping (the baby sleeping with the mother) is safe but we have volumes of research showing that baby warmers and beds for babies are not as safe?

They traumatize babies. Doctors know this by measuring babies' vital signs and stress indicators. Babies taken away from their mothers are less able to stabilize their vital signs, and they have high levels of cortisol--high enough to cause brain damage.
