    Thanks for the hugs everyone.

    I agree I wouldn't have heard her if she was elsewhere. I don't even want to think about it but yeah she didn't wake me from the noise because she was choking silently before I picked her up, I think just being so close to her every night I knew something was going on. She's been super clingy with me since but that's great because I don't want her out of my sight for now!

    All health professionals should remain objective - unfortunately this isn't always the case! I am studying to be a nurse and it horrifies me that anyone would judge a mummy turning up with her sick bubby at 2am!

    I hope if you have another ED experience (fingers crossed you don't!) it is much more pleasant xx

    As a nurse myself, I think the reason you may have come across these opinions in hospital is due to the SIDS guidelines being very strictly abided by in hospital settings. Not to say she should have been rude about it, definitely not, but as health care workers we need to all send the same message other wise it will be confusing to mothers and patients if one nurse says bed sharing is ok, and another says it is not. Personally I think it is risky, but i certainly don't judge somebody for doing so, and I don't think it makes somebody a bad parent.

    I just has someone tell me yesterday that I SHOULD not even have my newborn baby sleeping in our room (in a cot next to the bed) as planned. S/he SHOULD be sleeping in its own room from the beginning.

    I was under the impression that feeding on demand was what you do. Are people seriously going to tell me that I'm expected to let my baby go hungry or force it to eat when it's not???

    Huh? Isn't that against SIDS guidelines?

    I'm assuming you safely cosleep. Just imagine if you weren't, you could have lost your little one. Stuff the hospital- you saved your dd's life! I hope she is ok now.

    That is wrong, they should be in a cot in your room for the first 6-12 months - that is the SIDs guideline.

    What a rude nurse! I started co sleeping because of a nurse when I was in hospital after having DS. She could see I was obviously struggling breastfeeding and getting him back to sleep in the cot next to me so pulled up the side and said to try having him in with me

    I hope your DD is okay.
