Why are people so dead set against putting things in the crib when they are babies for a suffocation hazard, when it's just the same thing to sleep with the baby? I'm not saying you should put things in the crib, just saying, how can you be against one thing and not the other when they are easily the same thing? I hear moms say all the time "co-sleeping is the best way to go" but at the same time they say "never put ANYTHING in your baby's crib when she's asleep!) I think a baby is more likely to suffocate from your body with no porous surface than a blanket. Isn't it hypocritical? These two things are both hazardous, are they not? You may hear more about crib deaths than mothers suffocating their babies in their sleep, but aren't they equally dangerous?Answer Question

The point is to create a safe sleep environment for the baby. If baby is in a crib they are alone. This is why you can't have anything in there with them. If you have baby in your bed with you then that must be safe as well (no cracks baby can fall into, no heavy comforters etc.). But when baby is in bed with you they are not alone. When a breastfeeding mom sleeps with their baby studies show she is very aware of where baby is at all times. Really good info at Why We Never Ask "Is it Safe for Infants to Sleep Alone?"
