Bed sharing is gaining popularity, although the sleeping positions of mothers and infants have been questioned because of reported worries regarding the possibility of infant death. This study aimed to investigate infant sleeping location and the association between co-sleeping and parameters such as breastfeeding, infant–mother attachment, and infant death. A systematic search of five electronic databases (Medline, Cochrane, CINAHL, EMBASE, and Scopus) was undertaken to identify related studies. Additional searches conducted were based on the references of the selected studies. Initially,147 articles were located. Titles and abstracts were examined for relevance to the review objective. Studies that met the inclusion criteria were then evaluated for methodological quality. Our study investigated the existence of a correlation between co-sleeping and breastfeeding, infant–mother attachment, maternal depression, infant sleep patterns, and infant death, as well as the possibility of other associated factors.
