The reason is that I get night terrors sometimes - especially when someone/a pet is breathing on me, and have been known to punch/kick/slap/throw the pet/person. I thought that this would be dangerous for my baby and so I decided not to cosleep.
However, I keep reading about people being super-aware of their child being in the bed and waking up in the same positions they started in, etc.
If this is true, for future babies that I probably will have, do you think I could safely cosleep, or would it be a huge risk of me attacking the baby? Does anyone else that gets night terrors cosleep?
I think I may not have gotten such severe sleep deprivation and BF'ing at first may have gone easier.
And when my son has nightmares when he's older? Should I have him sleep by daddy and not near me?
I wanted to add that the animals aren't in our marital bed - they were in my bed at my parents house.
