I am PETRIFIED that I or my boyfriend will somehow smother him. Don't give me that "there is no way unless you are drunk or stoned anything bad will happen" speech because accidents can and do happen. After my delivery the hospital was packed and we had to stay in a ward with three other women for two nights and on the second morning I was SO exhausted and sleep deprived that I grabbed the baby out of his bed half asleep to soothe him and then just fell back asleep before I had him tucked into my arm and I just let go!!! THANK GOD for the guardrail or I don't even want to think about what could have happened. My boyfriend and I both woke up instantly and Ethan didn't even notice anything had happened but I still feel awful and sick when I think about it :( I know co sleeping is very good for babies and so I'm looking for recommendations on how to do this in the safest possible way!
