Laws has it right!

"Wanganui mayor Michael Laws has joined the debate about parents sharing beds with babies, calling a warning by the Whanganui District Health Board "little more than politically correct nonsense...".

I actually listened to this show. He has it right. Almost all parents- at some point- put a grumpy baby in our bed to sooth them. We don't smother them because we are acutely aware that they are there. AND want them out at first opportunity!

MOST of the smotherings- and I want to emphasis- NOT ALL- are from she-elephants and/or the drug or booze addled with a BMI larger than their IQ.

I'm sure many large mammals kill their young this way.

By being large and dumb, that is!
