i am a single mom and my son is my first born, now 7 weeks old. after he was born, he was put in the NICU up until he was 13 days old. i have his crib set up, but he does not sleep in it. since the first day i brought him home, i have put him in my bed, and he sleeps with me. one of the main reasons is due to him stopping breathing when he has seizures (the reason he was in the NICU). He hasnt had a full blown seizure since he was 3 days old... but i still have that fear that if i put him in his crib, im going to wake up in the morning and he will have quit breathing all together.
my question is, how many other moms let/have let their children sleep with them, and what problems did you have when it came time for them to move to their own bed?
