questioning authority

Seems like a lot of parents out there are quietly resisting the tyranny of the study. The New York Times reported yesterday that many parents are letting their babies sleep on their stomachs despite strong evidence that back sleep can prevent SIDS. Also, the breastfeeding advocates LLLI, have chimed in on the latest pro-pacifier/anti-co-sleeping recommendations from the AAP. They are not impressed (and even cite some studies to help explain why). These two organizations have more recently been very much in cahoots, especially with regards to the importance of breastfeeding. Maybe the warring officials are helping make way for more confident parental improvisation?
