    DD co-slept full time until she was 12months and I hope to do same when the new baby comes along. However DD is rather unsettled with her sleeping at the moment and is spending part of the night in with us 2-3 times a week. She usually prefers to sleep in the middle of the bed, cuddling up to whoever is the favourite parent at the time and will spend some time BFing, usually to settle but doesn't need it all the time and will let go when asleep. We have a superking size bed.

    Is co-sleeping with both children going to be possible? Is it going to be safe for the newborn and is there anything I can do to make it safer?

    If your older child is in the middle, I'd just have the baby between you and the wall/a bed rail.

    I had my son (20mths) in the middle of hubby and I, and my daughter (newborn) on the side with a mesh bed rail. We did this for four months, and then my son chose to go in his crib for bed.
