Co-sleeping is not dangerous if done properly. It's perfectly fine to co-sleep with your baby. Here are some tips for doing it safely:


If you aren't comfortable co-sleeping then you could look into a co-sleeper (attaches to the side of your bed) or you could look up how to side car your baby's crib to your bed.

i don't think it's dangerous, i just can't imagine it to be comfortable for you. but if you get sleep this way go for it. or have your baby next to you in your bed. did you try to put her to sleep on her belly. i know that it's not recommended, but i know of some cases where the baby would only go to sleep on the belly and that was just fine. i myself am a belly sleeper and can't sleep in any other position...so i imagine there might be some babies out there the same way.

and why is it dangerous? because that's what tv says and all articles on coosleeping? I slept like that with my son until he was 3 months old and I thought that was the safest position ever. I had him close I knew he was breathing warm and safe with me that was the best time because I felt comfortable and was getting the most sleep even though I had to wake up every 2 hours to feed him.

I agree that there are studies that co-sleeping babies that are in a safe situation are safer than babies alone in a crib with no nuk.

Both my girls could only fall asleep if they were swaddled very tightly. I would nurse them to sleep (till about 6 months) and then lay them down very carefully.

I agree with Sarah. I Co-Slept and it was wonderful bonding. Not to mention so much easier when you are nursing. You will however not sleep like you did before but can adapt.
