Safe Infant Sleep

Expert Answers to Your Cosleeping Questions

James J McKenna


This book offers a range of options and safety tips for your family's ideal cosleeping arrangement. These include variations of roomsharing and bedsharing, and introduce the concept of “breastsleeping.” This term, coined by Dr. McKenna himself, is based on the inherent biological connection between breastfeeding and infant sleep, and provides readers with everything they need to know about safely sharing a bed with their baby. Complete with resource listings for both parents and professionals, this book teaches you how to confidently choose a safe sleeping arrangement as unique as your family.

A Parent's Comment About the Book

Made me confident in my decisions. As a tired, overly analytical, new mom trying to decide whether or not co sleeping was for me, this book took a while to explain “how to co sleep safely.” It does get there but you may want to skip to it if that’s why you’re reading. Ultimately, I decided co sleeping was not for me. A bedside bassinet (pack n play) and tummy sleeping worked for us.
