Yes: Unfortunately, cosleeping is a cause of many infant deaths and injuries each year. It is currently not recommended to sleep next to your baby.
Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky
Pediatrics 35 years experience
Yes: Sudden unexpected infant death is much more common with cosleeping.

? remember history ?: The famous story of the wisdom of Solomon dealt with one woman who stole a baby because she had "overlain" hers.That was the first written record of a mother smothering her baby during co-sleeping.We loose about 100 babies a year in the US because mothers "love" their baby to death this way.It is not recommended.Understand the risk It could happen to you.
