The Association Between Shared Sleeping Arrangements and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
Usually and last sharing a bed or crib with a non-parent and other arrangements (e.g. sleeping on sofas) were positively associated with SIDS. Data for infant-parent bed-sharing were less clear. Infant-parent bed-sharing at the reference sleep was not associated with SIDS, but usual infant-parent bed-sharing was. Usual measures may more accurately reflect night time behaviors than measures at the reference sleep, because reference times were determined by case infants' deaths and distributed throughout the day. After stratifying on time, odds ratios for last infant-parent bed-sharing were similar to odds ratios for usual infant-parent bed-sharing. In addition to time of day, infant-parent bed-sharing during the reference sleep interacted with infant illnesses, infant age, maternal smoking during pregnancy, maternal age, and education.
