Working with a total of 1,000 new moms, researchers from the UK’s National Institutes of Health found that approximately 20 percent of mothers do not receive advice from doctors about how to care for their babies.

 

More than 50 percent of the mothers said they receive no advice on co-sleeping or sharing their room with the baby.

 

The study was published in the journal Pediatrics.
