Ive been reading alot on here how mostt of you have your baby in your bed sometimes at night
personally id love to have lily in my bed im just afraid something will happen like i would roll over onto her or something :/
I co-sleep with both of my boys, and have done so since they came home from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Our bed is pushed up against the wall, and one of them sleeps next to me and the wall, and the other one (usually my toddler) sleeps in between me and my husband. I am very aware of my babies, and wake up if either one of them moves.
Co-sleeping is great if it's done safely! If you're afraid of rolling onto her, perhaps you can buy a co-sleeping bed.
I think theres a list of things you can do to make co-sleeping safer somwhere on BNB ill have a look for you.
I co-slept now and have done since she was 4 months i was always very aware of where she was etc. I never had pillows and used a light blanket or put LO in a sleeping bag and she always went between me and the wall.
My LO will not settle in his crib at all so far, I know it's only been 2 nights but so far in between me and daddy is the second best place. First place is being cuddled by me, falls asleep instantly but then I don't sleep.
I was such a heavy sleeper before and now it's weird... I'll drift off and know he's there even though I'm asleep and even if he twitches I'm awake all of a sudden. I was scared at first but instinct does kick in and you won't harm your baby
I'd just make sure she's not on top of the duvet or near it and no pillows by her
I've co-slept with Kenneth since he was six weeks old (wish I'd done it sooner though). You just do whatever feels right and best to you. When I was pregnant, I seriously didn't think there was anything worse than co-sleeping, I just looked up a lot of articles and it's relation to SIDS, I thought like why in the hell would anyone do that???
When you have a baby though, it's really hard to get sleep and you do everything to get any hour you can. I'm not going to say the worriness went away because I still worried, but as time went on and I got more confident in co-sleeping, it got easier. Even when we weren't co-sleeping, I would get up numerous times a night out of my bed to make sure he was still breathing in his pack n play!
Make the decision when your LO is here, but just educate yourself on how to be safe while co-sleeping, that way you can make an informed decision when your LO arrives. I don't regret co-sleeping at all, even though now I have a 21 month old in my bed, he's such a good sleeper.
I did it with both mine, and still do on occasions with Logan as he still wakes in the night, and sometimes wont resettle. Robyn i co slept till 4/5 months then she ent in her own cot in her own room and has been fine ever since.
