is this bad?? answers THANKS@!!!

My baby will only sleep propped up either on my chest or up slightly on a soft pillow and sometimes i will let her sleep propped upward on my boppy.

I make sure her head and neck are not bent and she is comfortable.
Is this a bad idea to do?

  • nah, she knows how she is comfy. My son was the same way. Everyone preaches about crib death and stuff, some people swear the tummy is the best and others swear the back is the best. Do what works for you and your daughter.

  • not at all. It actually helps digestion and prevent spitting up

  • My DD would only sleep on my chest for the first 3 weeks. =) It's cool. She lived hearing my heart beat for 9 months, 3 weeks of chest sleeping is fine by me! Plus, when else are you going to be this close to your child!

  • my son use to only want to sleep in his bouncer. From like three months till six all bouncer! Just make sure the baby can turn her head on her own so she doesnt suffocate! You want to stir away from big fluffy stuff.

  • How old is your baby? It is probably fine, but smaller babies are at a risk for suffocation with pillows. Even the boppy has a warning not to let your infant sleep on it. There are baby wedges you can get for her crib I don't really know if they're safer or not though. If that's how she sleeps best then you just have to go with what works. Just check on her a lot and make sure she's doing okay.
