I don't know that I'd be ready to camp at 3 weeks pp. I've camped with older babies - 5-6 months old and it went very well, but I'm usually still not feeling great at 3 weeks.
Me, me!
I put a light blanket over the whole couch, so there are no gaps in the cushions. The back cushions are off, so the back is more like a hard, fabric covered wall. It's also about as wide back as a twin bed, and she sleeps in the crook of my arm. Maybe I should just get an extra twin mattress for her floor or something, would that be more safe?
Hi! I am currently bedsharing with my 4 month old dd from about 4-7am on the couch. DH sleeps in the bed alone and I'm on the couch.

My first two were overdue (well, number 1 was only a day over, but I went to 42 weeks with number 2) so I'm expecting that I will probably go over this time as well.
My kids are barefoot a lot. Not outside in the summer, we live in the desert and it's 110-120 degrees in the summer. When the weather is nice, we're all barefoot!
