what about a co-sleeper and save the cot-bed for later? But then I haven't used a cot for mine since dd2 was a couple of weeks old, lol.

Don't forget a decent baby carrier Wink

I wont do anything like that as i dont agree with babies sleeping in or with mum & dad. I always think they should be put in thier own place to sleep - we are going to use dds cot-bed now anyway (squeeeeeeeze it in!) and just buy a new matteress Smile

sure hun lol i just dont believe in having babies in with you - it increses the risk of cot death and i feel they should learn to sleep in thier own as soon as possible - our daugther was in our room until 6 months old but she was in her onw cot so we were still "there" in a way and could settle her as soon as she needed, plus im also a worry wort and am scared that i would roll onto her and sufforcate her - ive read so many stories about mums being done for murder when they've acidentally rolled into thier baby! but thats just my opinion hun Smile xxxx

Actually it reduces the risk of SIDS if the parents aren't under the influence of drink or drugs (including prescription/OTC meds that affect sleep) or smokers, and normally-alert mothers tend to naturally make a 'nest' shape around their babies when sleeping with them which prevents rolling onto them. Just thought since you're planning to breastfeed it would make it easier to do night feeds if the cot/crib is open and right next to the bed. Learning to feed lying down is one of the most useful skills for mothers of young babies (and older ones too!) I think Smile and given that we're naturally programmed to drop off more quickly than people who aren't breastfeeding it makes sense to me to prepare to cosleep safely. Got to be better than falling asleep sat up with baby on your lap and dropping them!

Part of the reason i wont haev them in bed hun is i would be scared of sufforcating them while breast feeding if i fell asleep! im not the smallest of people in that area and part of the reason i had to stop with my daugther was she couldnt breathe! i would always take my daugther onto my bed to breast feed while it lasted anyway as its more comfy! I undertsand what you are saying hun but im just too big a worry wort when it comes to sleeping with babies - especially as im on the bigger side. Embarassed Smile
