My week old has had problems sleeping at night and we tend to end up both passed out on the couch (her on her stomach on top of me) after feeding. Is this bad? Does it put her at a higher risk for sids since she's on her stomach? I honestly don't mean to fall asleep like this, but I just get so tired. If it is bad, what should I do?Answer Question

My son slept on my tummy/shoulder when he was little and I really enjoyed it - I don't think there is any harm in it, esp. since you will probably sleep more lightly with your daughter on top of you (taking the precautions other moms have pointed out). My husband took a picture of my son and I sleeping on the couch (I was in a sitting position with my head and back elevated by the arm of the couch). When I took it to work, a woman freaked out on me because my son was on his tummy. I was like, "Look, his head is on my shoulder. I'm going to notice if his breathing changes." I think sometimes common sense goes out the window in some people's attempt to obey the "letter of the law."
