    I was scared of sids too and made up my mind before bub was born we wouldnt co sleep...but now it sometimes is the only thing that works to get a good night sleep. Just do it safely with a proper precautions and it is a wonderful bonding experience....and doesnt last forever. Do what works for you and forget everything anyone else tells you

    Second this. LOOVED the book. Made me feel comfortable about dd sleeping in the swing too. I ended up purchasing a fisher price rock and play sleeper- same incline as the swing, portable (folds up and chuck it in the boot) and designed to be slept in. Best $90 I ever spent.

    If you don't want to purchase the book, the troublesome tots site (Google it) covers it all and has great advice and reassurance. I spent many nights at that website.

    Edit: the current national guidelines for SIDS is that co sleeping is NOT recommended. Not saying people shouldn't, (for example I had dd in her own room by 4 months against the guidelines) but you should be aware that is the current guidelines. You need to do what YOU feel comfortable with. Personally, for me that was not co-sleeping, I tried it and didn't work for us at all. But you do what works for YOU!!

    I was thinking about you last night, OP, because I remember so vividly how petrified I was of DS dying from SIDS. I just wanted to say that the odds are really very low. I know it does happen, and I of course think it's important to follow the guidelines. The SIDS website does have information about safe co-sleeping, and if you are not a smoker and haven't consumed alcohol or drugs it's obviously a lot safer.

    Anyway, I found this piece of information really comforting when the anxiety overwhelmed me: 'Get out a quarter, a six-sided die, and a thoroughly shuffled deck of cards. On a piece of paper, write down heads or tails, a number between 1 and 6 and a card. Then flip the coin, roll the die, and randomly pluck a card out of the deck. The probability that you wrote down the correct outcomes for all three of those is 1 in 624, substantially greater than 1 in 1000.' The rate of SIDS death in Australia is now 1 in 2000.
