|Whoever had th suggestion of the crib at the same level as the bed... is the crib pushed up against the bed and held in place somehow? That sounds really neat, because then the baby has a bed but he's close to mommy and daddy.
I know the risk of sids is increased by blankets and cushions, so having the baby actually sleeping on the firm baby mattress and having his own blanket is really nice. And for feeding, you just scoop him into your arms, feed, and then roll him back over lol.
|Well, I know that when I started co-sleeping it was a complete accident. Alyvia was a few weeks old and was nursing every few hours. I was completely exhausted and could hardly keep my eyes open while I fed her. I started to get paranoid that .I'd fall asleep and lose my grip on her, so I started nursing her in bed. Suddenly everything became so much easier. She started sleeping better, I started sleeping better...
|My daughter never slept in a crib...I had one for her but i was too afraid for her to sleep in it so I never bothered to set it up ...only downside too it was weening her off sleeping with me and into her own bed ...she slept with me until she was almost 3|
