Parents who Share a Bed with their Baby Dramatically Increase SID Risk: Findings revealed that close to 69 percent of the infants from the sample who died were sharing a bed with an adult. Study results also showed that deaths of close to 73.8 percent of younger infants below the age of four mounts were due to bed-sharing.
Researchers said more attention regarding the risks of bed-sharing should be discussed among parents with infants three months or younger. According to Dr. Jeffrey Colvin of the university, parents should be warned about such sleeping areas for babies. If an infant rolls near a parent or objects where he or she is sleeping, the chances of suffocation dramatically increase.
