Mother: I made informed decision and would do it again

Help

A new report published by BMJ Open suggests that sharing a bed with a newborn increases the risk of sudden infant death syndrome fivefold.

However, one mother has told the BBC that she has shared a bed with her baby since he was born, and made an informed decision in doing so.
