  • I like for my babies to sleep right next to me.  Not actually WITH me though unless my husband is watching.  I really like to co sleep so for example, when we have a newborn, my husband will basically watch us like a hawk while the baby and I nap together occasionally.  It gives me the co sleeping I love and gives both of us peace of mind.  Other than that, I prefer for the baby to be in a semi upright position on his/her back.  Swings make me feel better then bassinets and such.
