Also, remember that human infants are not designed to sleep for such long periods, despite what our culture tries to force and wants to believe. Additionally, they are not meant to go so long between feedings. Here is a good article written by an anthropologist: http://www.kathydettwyler.org/detsleepthrough.html.

There are some indications that falling into a deep sleep increases the SIDS risk. Of course, you are right there beside her, but if you are not actually touching her, I would imagine that you, too, would fall into a deep sleep and not be able to notice if she has periods of apnea.
I love stuff like this!! So funny...
My daughter slept at least 10 hours a night since the day she was born. She was born that way. I did nothing to get her to sleep for that long, she just did it. Unless a baby is ill, I don't support the idea that you need to wake them up to eat. They'll wake up when they get hungry.
We are designed to survive. We need to eat. We'll wake up when we're hungry. I think its bad idea to teach a baby to wake up to eat unless its necessary.
I think if its safe its ok for your baby to sleep anywhere you're comfortable with!
