Can you co-sleep on memory foam?
We are looking at buying a new bed and are looking at an organic natural memory foam...but we co-sleep with our 11 mth old and plan to with future babies from birth.

FWIW we do and have had no issues (coslept from day 1). I think that as far as the mattress softness is concerned if all the usual precautions are followed (no extra stuff on the bed, blankets/pillows out of the way) it's fine.

I agree. We have also been cosleeping on memory foam since day one as well.

Our memory foam is pretty firm, so if that is a concern you have options.

Fwiw, I say go for it! =)
Oh and splurge on the king size. We are wishing we had one now that our little one is not a super tiny baby anymore.

Good luck!
