Falling asleep feeding

Does anyone else here Co-sleep with baby? I've got in the habit of sleeping on side with baby sleeping on his side feeding until asleep ( myself included!). I know some of you will frown on me because he is 2 months old sleeping in bed, but I actually feel better with him close by. He was real sick first two weeks and I had to sleep sitting up holding him due to congestion, so now he won't lay on back for extended periods of time without contact with me.

As long as you're careful about blankets and pillows, co-sleeping is FINE!

Still bfing and bedsharing with my 1 year old. And she's cuddled next to me as I type this. Nothing wrong with having a strong bond with your baby at night too. :)

I sleep the same way with my DD. I'm on my side with her facing me in my arms. I've been doing it for almost two months and she's going to be three months old on Friday. I started doing it because I was tired of freezing when I got up to feed her. I am, however, slowly trying to get her to sleep next to me, rather than in my arms, because she's starting to kick me n her sleep and it's annoying! lol

It is TOTALLY fine!!
My dh fought it for 3 weeks, but we were sleeping with her anyways (reflux wouldn't allow her to sleep comfortably on her back), so how was bed gonna be any different!?!? haha So now she's almost 4 months, and we wouldn't have it any other way!!

As long as all safety precautions are being taken, enjoy your sleep! :)

I wish I could cosleep! DH has issues with extreme sweating and he moves so much because of it that it wouldn't be safe for us.

p.s It's in our nature as well. My dh and I have never gotten close to rolling over onto her. And most times, I wake up before she does to feed her. :]

It didn't work for me and ds. I was half asleep and every time he made a noise I would wake him up thinking he needed to nurse. so now he sleeps in his room and I use a baby monitor. we both sleep better now! but if it works for you more power to you.

I've co-slept or bed-shared with all of mine.  My 3rd is the only one who wouldn't sleep in the bed with me, but all the others did.  I'm looking foward to having a baby in my bed again. :)
