  • Yes, I co-sleep as well. I have a little divider that helps keep her from rolling over and also would be uncomfortable if I rolled on it and wake me up...but it has never even come close to happening.

  • No. He sleeps in his basinet next to the bed. He'll be moving to his crib shortly.

  • Both of my kids slept with me and nothing happened but looking back that is not a risk I want to take again.
    When my sister was in the hospital after having her baby a nurse told her that just a month ago she walked in on a mom and baby in bed together and the baby was dead......she suficated him in her sleep.

  • I still nap with my 6 year old! I bf for a while with both of my kids, they didn't really sleep with me but if they work up I'd put them on my boob and go back to sleep. I never rolled over them, but one time I think my son got overly hot and when I woke up I freaked out, it looked like he wasn't breathing :(

  • Troll. Yes I slept with all my kids. Never rolled over on any. But now that they are older I squash 'em regularly just to keep 'em in line.

  • Nope, she was in the next room the 2nd night home for the hospital. I planned on keeping her in our room in a bassinet longer, but none of us slept well that night (not even her). Once she was in her own room we all slept better.
