Just wanted to share a "thank God we co-sleep" moment... DD is 13 mos, we've co-slept since day 1, and in the last few months she has begun spending about half the night in her crib at the foot of our bed. DH has always been uncomfortable with having her in bed with us because he feels it's unsafe, and better for her to gradually learn how to sleep alone; it's been a topic of discussion since birth. I co-slept with my boys, so have always been comfortable and secure doing so, and in the end DH decided to trust my judgement.
Last night, she was cuddled in bed with us, with my arm around her as usual (I had been too asleep myself to move her after she nursed back to sleep), when all of a sudden I awoke with a start, feeling my sweet baby choking and sputtering! She was throwing up in her sleep and choking on it!! I was able to quickly roll her over and pat her back so she could get it up & breathe again, and after throwing up 3 more times, with 3 changes of jammies, she was ok and nursed back to sleep. I, however, did NOT sleep again for a while!
As I was cleaning up our sheets while DH held her, I told him how lucky we were that DD was in bed with us, and not in her crib when that happened. I said it was entirely possible that I would have been too asleep to hear her choking, and might not have woken up in time. I could tell that thought scared him - his face blanched, and he solemnly nodded assent. When she fell asleep again, I wondered aloud if I should put her in her crib or keep her with us...he instantly said "Keep her in bed with us!"
Anyone else have "Yay for co-sleeping" stories to share?
