My boyfriend and I are registering for baby stuff which brought up the topic of co-sleeping. I've read a lot about the benefits and would really like to do it, but our bed is kinda small and we both tend to move around a lot. My boyfriend usually ends up in the middle of the bed which means I'm on the far edge.... so I'm not sure it's safe to add a tiny person to the mix. So plan B is putting a baby bed up against my side of the bed. I'm just not sure what my best option is. I don't really like the idea of a crib and having bars in the way and all, but I'm afraid something like this would be outgrown pretty quickly.

I always have slept in the middle with baby/toddler on the side, with the bed up against a wall. Then when bed space becomes an issue we side-carred a toddler bed. Now we are back with a baby in the bed, me in the middle but baby on the side with a bumper on the edge.
With our first baby, several friends offered to give us their old co-sleepers, but we have a futon and I don't think that they are compatible. I have heard good things about them from friends who wanted to co-sleep but were a little frightened of the concept as well.
I didn't want to buy a co-sleeper thing because they are expensive, and yes would be outgrown. I also knew I wanted to co-sleep for a long time. The best choice for us was taking a rail off the crib and sidecaring it to our bed. But baby insists on being closer to me than that, so me, my husband, and infant are sleeping in a full size bed and my butt sleeps in the crib sidecar lol. It's a little crowded. We are trying to figure out how to get a king size bed into our room.
