Dr. James J. McKenna, PhD, director of the Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame shares:
- the science and history of co-sleeping,
- the need to define the terminology
- why public policy is based on social norms instead of science,
- why public policy is unethical, as it withholds information about cosleeping
- WHY THIS IS ALL GETTING READY TO CHANGE AS BREASTFEEDING RATES INCREASE
- and how parents can become empowered and stand up for what is essentially a civil right: to make your conscious parenting choices according to science and not unethical public policy and uninformed social norms.
