Deborah Jackson’s first book, Three in a Bed, with its enthusiastic championing of the family bed, caused an immense amount of media comment on its first publication. It is the classic childcare manual for parents seeking an alternative to broken nights. Young’s study vividly describes the many ways in which babies and parents can benefit from sharing a bed. It details the invaluable benefits for breastfeeding mothers, reviews the history of babies in the bed and, through interviews with parents, explores current attitudes to the idea.
