Who lets their newborn baby sleep in the bed with them?

I breastfeed and end up finding myself asleep with her laying on top of me. I'm one that doesn't move in my sleep what so ever.

  • I did the same thing and wound up with ds on my chest. If I could move him to his bassinet I would, but those first few weeks he slept on me.

  • I did but I wont with baby number 2. I'm still trying to get my 2 1/2 year old to sleep in his own bed. I know its my own fault :) I won't make that mistake again!

  • I slept with my baby until he was 7 months he still sleep with me sometimes, I find it easier to breastfeed, and nothing scary ever happened. its reassuring to have him right there

  • I did. I didn't breast feed - she refused to latch on. I had her in bed with me because my ex-husband and I split up while I was pregnant and basically took off so I had very little money and my other daughter was still sleeping in the crib (she was 15 months old) so she slept with me up until she was about 7 months old. At that point the court finally tracked down my jerk of an ex and I started getting child support so with his money I went out and bought her a crib and my other daughter got a toddler bed.

  • I took naps with both my sons all the time... I loved that quality time with them, too bad ones is too old now and my toddler is too independent to take naps with mommy anymore :( I miss them so much!
