Okay, so I will be cosleeping with my 5-year-old DS and the new baby who will be here in about a month and a half. I have a queen size bed that's up against the wall in the corner. I've been told to have DS sleep on the inside... but I worry about baby falling off if s/he is on the outside. Plus, as terrible as this sounds, I would rather DS be on the outside. He sleeps in the craziest positions and if he's on the inside, he'll just push me until I'm squished in the middle trying not to knock baby off.... at least if he's on the outside he'll fall off which, yes that sounds terrible, but he does that regularly right now as it is. He just grumbles and climbs back on the bed...or just falls asleep on the floor.
So.... I've been told that baby should sleep on the outside and I should make some kind of barrier on the edge of the bed (strip of foam thing made for that) so baby can't roll off. But, if I could do that, couldn't I do it on the inside? That way there's no risk of baby falling between any space between bed and the wall?
On that note, wherever I put the barrier... what on earth do I USE? I have NO money to buy anything special. But I don't know what to do. And I think I've heard to use rolled up towels or something before but, uh, wouldn't that just be recipe for suffocation?
