Im scared to put Autumn in her bassinette to sleep. Im afraid of her choking and me not being able to hear her. Anyone else have this fear and get over it?

It's hard at first. You get used to it. Just make sure there's nothing loose in the bassinet. No toys, no pillow, no blanket.. Etc. There's less chance of her choking if there's nothing for her to choke on. Stick her in the bassinet for naps so she gets used to it. If it has wheels, bring it into the room your in so YOU get used to it, and for piece of mind that she's okay. Hope this helps.

I have basinette but still scares me that she's not on me sleeping

I coslept until Gabriel started to move around, then I put him in his bassinet right beside me and would fall asleep holding his hand. Eventually he got too big and I moved him into his crib. It took me awhile to get used to, and I was up a lot of the night checking on him.

Of course! : ) 

Quoting mama-smurf:

I cant move crib next to bed, its in other room. What about bassinette?


Quoting louzannalady:

You can also side car her crib. Furthermore, part of safe bed sharing is to not have baby next to anyone but mom, so she would never be between you and your BF. But, I understand, bed sharing isn't for everyone. 

Quoting mama-smurf:

I cent bed share. I roll and so does my bf. My bf is aldo overweight





Quoting louzannalady:

I had that fear. It actually started me doing research. In the course of doing my research, I came across some stats. Less than 70 babies die while sharing a sleeping surface with an adult YEARLY! Over 3,000 (three thousand) die while crib sleeping. For us, it just made more sense to do the more biologically sound practice and bed share. For naps, our kids are in a pack and play in the living room, so we can hear/see them at all times.

*hug* I completely understand!!! : ) I had my second in July and I was a complete mess the first couple of months! : ) In fact, I still wake up at least once a night, if he doesn't wake me up to check on him- and we do bed share! : )

I do that too- and mine are two and four years old now, sleeping in their own room.  My mother didn't stop staying up until we were all in bed until we moved out lol.
