I am expecting my first baby in a couple months and I am still reluctant on what type of sleeping arrangements to make. I was hoping someone in the forum would be able to help me out. I live in a tiny one bedroom apartment and my bed is small. There is no way we can get a bigger bed because we wouldn't be able to open our closet door. I thought the best option would be to get a Arms Reach Mini Co-Sleeper and have that right next to our bed, so if things get too tight,...

I told her I have read the research and I was happy to share it with her. She refused to even listen and completely shut down. She believes my decision is a personal attack on her...
Hey everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. I am expecting my first child Jan 27. I am planing a home birth. I'm excited to join this group and share what is to come with other people who are due around the same time. Glad to be here!
