Newer research confirms bedsharing as a risk factor for SIDS independently of cigarette smoking. Sleeping in a room alone also confers an increased risk when compared to babies who sleep in a crib in a parent's room. Prematurity or low birth weight. Poor prenatal care.

When newborns are placed to sleep on their back instead of their stomach, the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome(SIDS) is reduced. Not smoking also reduces the risk.

It's not a good idea. Smoking increases the risk of SIDS.
