Co-Sleeping
October 2, 2012 at 11:50 AM
I love to cosleep with ds. He starts the night in his bed but once he wakes up I move him to my bed to bf him. I take all the precautions but it still makes me a bit worried so I wake up all the time to check on him. He likes to scoot really close to me and bury his face against my body. No matter what I try he always ends up that way. Any suggestions? (He's 4 months old)

    I'm assuming you're bed sharing. Let him be close to you! Cuddle him and snuggle him. I think closeness makes for safer bed sharing. Keep sheets at hip height and pillows to one per person.
    If you DON'T want him close like that, move him to a play yard next to the bed or a crib side carred to the bed. Hope you find a solution that works for everyone!
    DS has bed shared with us since birth. He's 20 months old. Baby due in March will join us in bed.

    Dd is 8 months and still bedshares. She snuggles like that with dh all night long, with me if she's snuggled close she usually has a boob in her mouth lol

    Sorry, don't have any. My kids sleep in their own beds.

    Bump!

    I'm so paranoid about him smothering or re-breathing his expelled air.

    same here. I coslept with one of my babies...worst decision I ever made. It created so many sleep issues later in life.

    He is doing his job! : ) Babies are boobie seeking missiles! :) Being close to you regulates his breathing, his body temperature and helps reduce the risk of SIDS! : ) Here is info from a researcher through Notre Dame on bedsharing! : )

    All my girls did that too and my 21 month old still does.

     Sorry, when I realized I was waking 5-6 times a night because I was paranoid, I stopped. DS sleeps in his own bed now. We are happy.

    But here's a bump for you. :)
