An important message today from Maine's Attorney General and Chief Medical Examiner. They're warning parents about the danger of sharing their beds with their infants. They've investigated the deaths of 5 babies since early January. All of the children were under the age of four months and all of them died as the result of asphyxiation while sleeping in the same bed as their parents. Medical Examiner Mark Flomenbaum says he has never before seen such numbers in his 23 year career and urges parents to resist the practice. The American Academy of Pediatrics says up to 12 babies die in Maine each year because they slept with their parents. It warns about sharing a bed or a couch with infants because even a quick nap can prove to be deadly. All of the recent baby deaths have been ruled accidental.
