How close are you and baby when cosleeping?

Posted by   + Show Post
Hera and I both seem to sleep best when we're in bed together but not touching each other. Is that strange?

She also doesn't seem to like to comfort nurse or fall asleep at the breast, neither did her sister. Isis would even go so far as to reject the breast when she was hurt or upset, I think Hera might be the same way. I always read about moms who can calm a hurt or upset child by nursing. Kinda wish I could do that too, it seems like a fairy tale!

 We both touch each other when sleeping.  He scoots in closer until he's pressing against me or he won't sleep.  He also comfort nurses all the time.

Cazzi and I sleep snuggled up at first, and then I scoot over a tiny bit and just keep either my forehead or hand against her, so we can both have spce.

This is Matt also, sometimes I have to push him closer to his dad just so I can get comfortable

Quoting melindabelcher:

Ellie is practically in me lol. She is as close as possible.
