I am thinking ahead for the next baby and well I'm wondering if anyone has worn their baby (newborn) in a wrap while sleeping at night... I know a lot of babies like to sleep on the chest--my concern is the baby falling off in the middle of the night. I thought about sleep in a big recliner while the baby is in a wrap so that I won't roll over. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks!
I did sleep with DD on my chest, and never rolled over, but I also didn't do it all night. Usually only when she fussed and needed something other than nursing. Then when I needed to move/roll over I would place her on the bed/in the cosleeper. She didn't roll off or slide off. Once she was able to roll over she didn't much like sleeping on my chest anymore.

I really don't think that would be safe..... and you should never sleep with your baby on a recliner or couch. Wearing a baby safely does involve active parenting, i.e. checking baby's position, being aware of breathing, it would be too easy for the baby to get smooshed in a way inside the wrap that could cut off her air supply.
Here are some guidelines for safe cosleeping:
Thanks for your responses... I found a similar question posted in an old thread. http://www.mothering.com/community/t/818421/maya-wrap-and-sleeping-with-baby Thought I'd share! :)
