    I've had DD between DH and I also. I lay on my side and kind of spoon her I guess. Sounds odd when said out loud but I don't roll and with my upper and lower body protecting DH from rolling I feel it's safe.

    But we have -

    Firm mattress
    No extra pillows
    Blankets get kicked off when she's in the bed
    She sleeps on her back
    I breast feed
    We don't drink, smoke, take drugs or any drowsy meds.
    I'm probably obese by the BMI but I have birth 8 days ago, I'm sure I'm 'allowed' to be.

    AND for added insurance against SIDS (as opposed to suffocation) She has a breathing monitor attached to her nappy. because I know very well bubbas sleeping safely can still stop breathing no matter how safe their sleeping space is.
    omg .... it's been so long already.

    I've used sleepy wings and love me wraps on DD without any issues. Just this week I've started her on sleeping bags with the wings at first and now without. I vaguely remember being told once she's rolling she couldn't be in those and she's close to rolling. I could be wrong on that last sentence to, it was just always in the back of my mind.

    Yes I had to stop using sleepy wings once my bub started rolling in his sleep.

    I did yep. From birth DD liked her arms up. She hated being swaddled. The love me wraps are great also. I used to alternate between 2 of them and 1 set of sleepy wings with the washing.

    We co sleep on a firm mattress with our 3 month old baby either between us or on my side. It makes breastfeeding a lot easier as he just latches on and sucks and falls back to sleep. I barely wake up when he attaches. Hes gaining weight and is a really settled baby. We started this in hospital when on one accassion we couldnt settle him. We put him into bed with me and he settled straight away. We all sleep well - it's great.

    It feels so good to write this. At mothers group last week they were talking about settling their babes in their cots and what they do. Co sleeping is not viewed highly by some people so I didnt say that we co - slept.

    We did it with our 12 year old daughter who is a confident and very secure person...which I think co - sleeping contributed to.
