Safe Sleep and Breastfeeding: Separating Fact from Fiction

Here you are again. It’s late at night. Your baby is hungry and needs to be fed. You are exhausted! You just want to lie down with your baby, so both your needs and theirs can be met. But almost as often as you’ve heard guidance that you “do breastfeed,” you’ve heard admonitions that you “don’t sleep with your baby.” How can you sort it all out?

Tune in as Marie and her guest, Dr. Stacy Scott, founder of the Global Infant Safe Sleep Center, tackle the tough questions around sleep, safety, and breastfeeding. What are safe sleep practices? What research do we have—or not have? What can babies’ fathers, grandparents, and communities do to help reduce sleep-related infant deaths? What can we say or do when our recommendations to parents aren’t perceived as valuable, or even feasible? Join Marie and Dr. Scott for answers to these and many other questions, as well as info about practical, evidence-based resources for parents and providers.
