The Lullaby Trust has released findings from a survey of more than 8,500 parents which show that: 76% have co-slept with their baby at some point; and over 40% admitted to having done so in dangerous circumstances such as on a sofa, having drunk alcohol or as a smoker. An animation, created in partnership with Public Health England and released to mark Safer Sleep Week (9-15 March), provides advice to parents on keeping their baby safe when they are tired.
