Hi everyone -
I'm pregnant with my first baby, due in December and will definitely be cosleeping. I'm leaning towards bedsharing and want some advice from familys with experience! I've read the official bed-sharing safety rules. Honestly the seem a little over the top to me. I'm wondering how bedsharing with a newborn worked for you.
Things I'm thinking of - do we really need to put our bed on the floor and up against a wall?
I like my fluffy down comforter and my pillows - where will the baby go? Do I have to get rid of them?
Does the baby go under or on top of the blankets?
What does the baby sleep in (clothing, sleep sack, swaddled, other?)
My DH would like to get a co-sleeper and I'm thinking it might be nice to have, but I'd rather have the baby closer.
DH is worried about there being room in the bed (we have a queen and our room isn't big enough for a larger bed).
Your experience and advice is much appreciated!
