I am the mom of a beautiful 6 month old baby girl. She completly fills my life with joy and there isn't anything I wouldn't do for her. However as I am still a new mom there are things that I am not if they are correct or not. For several months the question of whether or not it is ok for her to sleep on my bed has been bugging me. In my family this is received with both support and disapproval. I've come to terms that I want my baby to know that I love her and that I'm always around to keep her safe and warm. I My baby can't sleep on her own when she is put in her bassinet she fusses until we lay her on the bed. She loves sleeping next to me and cuddles against me all through the night. As a mother I am thrilled to have her display that much affection and my husband doesn't mind having to share the bed with her but I'm just afraid that I might be doing my baby a diservice by making her get used to co-sleeping. How can I get over this guilt?
