Hi, DH and I have a queen bed and I don't know where I'd put our baby! Just flat on the bed (bc they can suffocate near pillows)n or are they in a mini bassinet? How does it work?- thanks!!

We have a California king. And we had her in a sleeper bed thing that we found that fit in bed between us with hard sides for the first six months. After that she's just laid between us but I felt safer with the other thing while she was small. It was first years brand and I ordered it from target online

Here ya go, the top half is really hard so you can't roll over baby or put your pillow or blankets over them. I loved ours and it was awesome for about 4 months. You have to stop using them when they start moving around in their sleep. She is now in her crib right up against my side of the bed. We hold hands while sleeping:)

 I would kill to have a king! I'm a single mom and my son and I shared a twin size bed until he was over 2. Now we have a double and we still sleep super close and cozied up to each other. I say I'd love a king but I'm sure we'd end up spooning all night even if the bed was the size of a house. When he was an infant he usually stayed down by my boobs. We slept with one or 2 light blankets and I only had 1 pillow on the bed.

had queen size bed, we didn't think about sleeping with baby when we bought the bed. My son is 11months he doesn't bit into the bassinet. Our house is cold too so I put blanket over him and he sleep btwn pillows. I woke up multiple times a night of course checking on him, but he's fine he hate anything that even come close to his face so even a tiny corner of the blanket touches him he will brush it off. He kicks and roll and turn so it's not a good night sleep for the parents. Make sure he doesn't fall off the bed

This is exactly what I had and was trying to explain. It worked great for the first six months.

We had a king with our first and he slept in bed with us, no problem there. With our 2nd we downgraded to a queen and she still fit fine. Since I was breastfeeding I just cuddled them all night. :-)

Thank you! I am getting a c-section and won't be able to move very much at all. If DH has to pass me baby in the night this might be the easiest way instead of him getting up and going around our bed to the bassinet that is beside me on the other side!
