Cosleeping is great, you probably just shouldn't let it go on as long as I did lol. My son slept with me till he was 4 Oops. Oh well, I believe that is what was best for him but I will probably be putting my 6 month old in his own bed pretty soon.
We have been co-sleeping with LO and I love it, but sometimes not so much. Just on the days where he has really bad gas and is fidgity and wont stop moving around lol. I was afraid that DH would roll on him or I would but your body is unbelievably aware of where your LO is. Its the only way LO will sleep for a long time knowing that mommy and daddy are right there and its super cute to wake up and have LO right there. It also makes nursing a lot easier. I just whip out my boob and feed him laying on my side Only thing is changing him on the bed has turned bad the past 2 days. He started peeing everywhere before I could get the diaper on him, lil stinker
We're a co-sleeping family too. DD slept with us until she was almost three years old and my son, now 2, is still in our bed. I'm due uumm today with #3! and not sure where she will fit lol but we'll figure it all out.
Co-sleeping can be safe and actually usually is. If you have a lot of anxiety then look into a co-sleeping bed.
Also when my baby was a NB i would roll up a tiny blanket and put it behind her back so she wouldn't have a hard time nursing with me on her side. That's probably more of a bfing tip but oh well. Its kind of a nerve wrecking thing to have so many 'professionals' telling you something is dangerous but you want to go against them. However after I started co-sleeping I couldn't imagine why anyone would be so fearful. Do you almost roll over your husband? Even if you can't do you find your body attempting to smother him? And on top of that we are mothers and way more alert to our children. When I first started co sleeping we shared a Full sized bed and if he so much as tried to roll over I woke him up and said watch out!! So you can co-sleep on a tiny bed too.
If you want more room don't feel like you can't sleep on the floor, you totally can. I don't use a crib for nap times either, just a bundle of blankets and i nurse her to sleep on that. SOOO much easier than bfing her to sleep and trying to put her in her crib without her waking up (WHICH NEVER WORKED).
try getting a rock n sleeper ( i think thats what they are called ) i used that right beside the bed and DD slept there until she was about 5.5 months old. it has them at a bit of an incline, its the best thing i got. That way he's still right next to you but not in the bed
