Cosleeping: Science, History, Public Policy And Parents’ Civil Rights, With James McKenna, PhD
In an interview with Lisa Reagan, Kindred’s editor, James J. McKenna, PhD, director of the Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame, shares:
– the science and history of co-sleeping,
– the need to define the terminology
– why public policy is based on social norms instead of science,
– why public policy is unethical, as it withholds information about cosleeping
– WHY THIS IS ALL GETTING READY TO CHANGE AS BREASTFEEDING RATES INCREASE
– and how parents can become empowered and stand up for what is essentially a civil right: to make your conscious parenting choices according to science and not unethical public policy and uninformed social norms.
