|Parents who sleep next to their babies face putting them at risk, according to a new study.
The Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (FSID) has sent the warning to parents following pathology reports that many of the babies who have died were in fact sharing beds with their mums and dads.
However, the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) has said such a warning is unhelpful to parents and has told them to speak to their midwife to get advice.
FSID revealed that 85 per cent of the 173 babies that unexpectedly died in the London area had shared beds with a parent rather than slept alone in a crib or cot.
