In “The Return of Breastsleeping: Humankind’s Oldest and Most Successful Sleep and Feeding Arrangement”, attendees will take an in-depth look at bedsharing among breastfeeding mothers and infants. In light of the fact that  most breastfeeding parents end up bedsharing, Dr. McKenna will speak on the importance of creating safe sleep strategies which take bedsharing into account. There will be a focus on family-tailored information, evidence-based advice, and harm reduction. Dr. McKenna will address the significant continuum of relative risks in relation to sleep and will argue for recommendations based on evidence-based medicine.
