My LO will be 3 weeks old on Monday, and we sleep in bed together (me on my back and him on my chest). I put the boppy pillow in my lap and rest my arms around us. It started the first night in the hospital; I stll couldn't move from the epidural (and C-section) to get up enough in the bed to reach the bassinet, and LO spit up. Scared the crap out of me not being able to reach him to clear his airway so I just kept him with me that night. Its been like that ever since.
Who else co-sleeps, or who has with previous children? When are you planning to transition to bassinet, and eventually crib? I'm not feeling guilty about it. Actually, I love the closeness, but I know at some point we'll need to transition (probably first sleeping next to me, then in the bassinet next to our bed, and then his crib).
Thanks in advance, and its nice to meet you all!
