Im scared to put Autumn in her bassinette to sleep. Im afraid of her choking and me not being able to hear her. Anyone else have this fear and get over it?

    How old is she? When mine were newborn I had the fear they would stop breathing. I was constantly checking on them. I had ppd though.

    I just coslept abs then I didn't worry about anything. I could hear her breathing, feel her moving. She was secure next to me, slept soundly and nursed as soon as she needed to

    I coslept until Gabriel started to move around, then I put him in his bassinet right beside me and would fall asleep holding his hand. Eventually he got too big and I moved him into his crib. It took me awhile to get used to, and I was up a lot of the night checking on him.

    I had that fear. It actually started me doing research. In the course of doing my research, I came across some stats. Less than 70 babies die while sharing a sleeping surface with an adult YEARLY! Over 3,000 (three thousand) die while crib sleeping. For us, it just made more sense to do the more biologically sound practice and bed share. For naps, our kids are in a pack and play in the living room, so we can hear/see them at all times.

    You can also side car her crib. Furthermore, part of safe bed sharing is to not have baby next to anyone but mom, so she would never be between you and your BF. But, I understand, bed sharing isn't for everyone.

    You could try one of these if you have the money- they can be used as bassinette or co sleeper.  Sorry not clicky- silly ipad.
