Co Sleeping Good Or Bad

Val - November 2

We use a co-sleeper crib and have really liked it. DS is right next to me so I can reach over to make sure he's ok, but I don't have to worry about covering him accidentally with my blankets. It didn't help with b___stfeeding though, since I had a c-section, I couldn't really pick the baby up easily to move him into bed to nurse. Also we had some other latch issues, so I've always just nursed him in the rocker instead. But the armsreach co-sleeper was one of the best purchases we made! (He's still in it at 5 months.) The one downside to having him so close is that when he thumps his legs, it wakes us up, but I'll take the peace of mind from having him close over uninterrupted sleep . :-)

We had not planned on co-sleeping but having the crib in our room. Our lo ended up being a preemie and after getting out of the hospital still had a swallow issue. We had to thicken his formula so he would not aspirate however he had severe reflux and the spit up would come up thinner and he could still aspirate. I was constantly jumping up thinking he was choking and so we just ended up w/ him in the bed. The problem has got better over the last 2 months (he is 8 months now). So we don't have to worry about him aspirating but we can't get him in his crib. He just cries and cries. We claim it is our pillow top mattress haha
