DS spent the first 2 weeks of life on either my or DH's chest, he then moved to armpits and now he sleeps on his side, facing me. He doesn't really sleep on his back but I don't worry about SIDS. I'm somewhat skeptical of the whole back to sleep thing and I don't think it really applies to co-sleeping babies. You wake up if the baby's breathing changes, if they move, if they aren't moving, if the blanket goes near their face, etc. I think back to sleep is more of a concern if a child is alone in a crib.
There's nothing like waking out of a sound sleep to realize your newborn is falling off you...mind you I don't sleep well anyways with the baby in bed. For months I would wake up convinced DH was smothering the baby by sleeping on her and I'd be shoving him off the bed, searching frantically through the sheets for the baby when she was fast asleep right beside me in the co-sleeper.
