    I co slept with my babies most of the time. The only baby i didn't co sleep with died of SIDS alone in his cot So cots don't ness make sids less likely, well not for me anyway.

    After losing him i wouldn't leave any subesequent children out of my sight if i could help it at all and found that for me i was very attuned- hyper vigilent even so there was no way i would roll on my baby.

    I did buy one of those sleeper things you put in the bed next you to. Can't remember the name but it's so they can lay next to you but have a little copmpartment i will look it up and paste a link. I read that Jamie Oliver used this cute little cot thing that attaches to the side of the bed too and is open on the side against the bed but could also have a screen put up to separate the two. I might even buy one of those they were pretty nifty

    I'm so sorry to hear of your loss Laurea How devastating

    I use a side cot as well, as my mattress is not safe for co-sleeping (I have tailbone issues, hence the mattress). My DS is right there but on his own little surface. I have also used to the baby bed for travelling ("close and secure sleeper").

    Laurea, how devastating I nearly lost dd1 at 5wks. She was blue in her bassinette and I hated myself for trying to make her sleep in there we don't have a cot, a family bed (older girls have bunks) and a hammock for day sleeps...

    I'm so sorry laurea

    Jasper stopped breathing in his bassinet, after that I felt safer sleeping holding him than him sleeping alone.

    Hi Ladies,
    Out of 6 babies, EJ is my first I have fully co-slept with and I have found my experience to be similar to what you have all said. What Id like to know is, how do you keep them safely in your bed once they can pull themselves to stand and also walk? She started walking at 8 months and since then, she wakes at 5am and pulls herself up on our bedhead. She climbed over a sleeping DH and fell off on his side so do you have any tips you could share please? And sorry for drifting from the original question op, just thought Id ask while I was thinking of it

    I have toddler rails on one side, the other is at the wall, luckily DS wakes us up when he wakes but at 14 months now I'm not sure how long that will last before he realizes he can escape! A lot of people just have a mattress on the floor which is what we may look into!
