James Mckenna, seen interviewed above, is an American biological anthropologist who is recognized as the world's leading authority on mother-infant cosleeping in relationship to breastfeeding and SIDS.
McKenna is also the founder of the Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame. From their educational website he writes,
"Where babies sleep is NOT ultimately a medical issue at all, but is instead “relational,” often practical, and is supported by parental and infant biological systems.
No one-size-fits-all strategy as regards sleeping arrangements will work: there is more than one way to save babies' lives and promote the well being of families."
