    My hubby works in emergency services, and attended a co-sleeping death of a 6 week old bubba a few nights ago. Needless to say it was devastating for all involved. I can't go into details except to say the mother was not under the influence of drugs/alcohol. But I just wanted to put it out there that deaths do occur to the very best of mothers. Women who are simply exhausted and doing the best that they can. I know, I co-slept with all 3 of my children on occasion myself. I guess what I am saying, is please do it as safely as you can - there are lots of guidelines around to make co-sleeping (bed-sharing really) safer. And please remember that many women in countries around the world do co-sleep/bed share, but they dont have the luxury of comfy beds and squishy pillows that we do.

    I know some may be offended by this post, but given the number of bed-sharing accidents my husband has attended over the years (that naturally the general population don't hear about) I feel I have to say something

    I often fall asleep with my 5 mnther next to me on the boob.. It is magical, I think to each their own so long as you do it as safely as possible. I personally try to put bub in his cradle of I am still awake just to be sure.

    Hope you get some decent sleep soon! x

    Default Please tell me honestly...

    If that is the only way your bub will sleep and it prevents you from get so exhausted from constant wake ups then do it..
    Did you know you can buy a breathing monitor that clips onto bub so if they stop breathing you are alerted straight away? Perhaps a worth while purchase to put your mind at ease if you're worried?

    Just to clarify....are you sleeping like this in your bed, flat on your back? or are you sleeping propped up? Or on the couch??

    For me, no i wouldnt have bub on my chest at night time. I co slept with both my kids on the same bed but wouldnt feel comfortable with them on me at such a young age. For me day time naps are ok if i am sitting upright and awake. Hope you and bubba get more sleep soon, hugs.
