What Evidence-Based Research Tells Us About “Safe Infant Sleep”: The Science of Mother-Infant Bedsharing

February 17, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

This webinar is aimed at providing evidenced-based information on the topic of safe infant sleep to healthcare providers and other professionals working with pregnant women and new parents. This session will cover infant-parental sleep practices in relation to breastfeeding and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). It will also address what constitutes evidence-based medicine and the importance of providing safety information that goes beyond simply telling parents not to co-sleep with their infants.

James McKenna, B.A., M.A., Ph.D.
About:

Dr. McKenna is a world-renowned expert on infant sleep, in particular mother-infant co-sleeping in relationship to breastfeeding and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). He pioneered the first behavioral and electro-physiological studies documenting differences between mothers and infants sleeping together and apart and has become known worldwide for his work in promoting studies of breastfeeding and mother-infant co-sleeping.

A biological anthropologist, and Director of the Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory, McKenna began his career studying the social behaviour and development of monkeys and apes with an emphasis on parenting behaviour and ecology. He has published over 150 articles and six books, including a popular parenting book Sleeping With Your Baby: A Parent’s Guide To Co-sleeping, and more recently Safe Infant Sleep: Expert Answers To Your Co-sleeping Questions. In the United States, Dr. McKenna remains a primary spokesperson to the media on issues pertaining to infant-parental sleeping arrangements, nighttime breastfeeding, and SIDS prevention. He is a recipient of the prestigious Shannon Award (with Dr. Sarah Mosko) from the National Institutes of Child Health and Development for his research on SIDS and the “2008 Anthropology In The Media Award” from the American Anthropological Association.
