Safe Co-sleeping

I started reading some of her other articles and found myself getting upset.  Then, I read this one and it was all good...

Infants should be placed between their mother and the wall or guardrail. Fathers, siblings, and grandparents don't have the same instinctual awareness of a baby's location as mothers do. Mothers, your little one should be able to awaken you with a minimum of movement or noise.

This is true for me. When I had my first baby, I barely slept all night because I was hyper aware of him next to me. Now with Rosie, I sleep better but I wake immediately if she starts chirping around, looking for boob. Since I switch sides, she does sleep between me and my husband sometimes, but if he rolls over I wake up and make sure he isn't too close.

Joye, I think this is amazing.

Christian slept on my side until he was big enough to start rolling around, then we switched him to the middle so he wouldn't fall off the bed. Chris has been great at being aware of where he is, I think only once did he roll over too close to him, and Christian started squealing like a pig and Chris woke up, so it's all good. Now he's big enough he just punches us if we get too close  : - )

When Torin sleeps in bed with us he sleeps in the middle.  I am always afraid he will fall off the bed.
