DD2 is 2 weeks old and we are bed-sharing, we did the same with DD1 but I can't remember exactly how we co-slept/arranged the bedding etc. The baby is sleeping either snuggled right up against me with her face smooshed against my boob, or I move her a few inches away from me so I can get more comfortable, try to roll her onto her back (from her side) then put a blanket over her. I don't think I'm explaining this very well! The point is, if she was sleeping in a cot I would put her feet to the foot of the cot, and tuck her in tightly with a blanket that's tucked in to the bottom of the cot so it can't ride up over her face. Job done. With her in the bed it's a bit more free-flowing, I tend to put a blanket on her up to the armpits and then sort of weight it down with my arm, but as she gets a bit bigger and more co-ordinated she could end up pulling it over her face. I keep my own duvet tucked tightly around myself and well away from her. But I can't help thinking it doesn't seem terribly safe compared to if she was in a cot. What if she pulls the blanket over her head? What if she rolls over onto her front and suffocates on the towel that we're both lying on to protect the bed? Yes I am in fully-fledged new mum (albeit second time around) anxiety mode.
The other way we sleep is she likes to sleep face down on me with her feet dangling over my side and her face against my belly, it seems to help when she's got wind. Again I am worrying that she might end up suffocating on my nightie .
I think I am being a bit paranoid but any advice/tips/reassurance would be welcome.
