Cosleeping With Our Newborn

When we started this journey, I had every intention of having my baby sleep in her own crib (the Snuzpod) next to our bed, but unfortunately she’s spending little time in her crib and more time cosleeping next to us.

I was always so worried about co-sleeping due to both SIDS and the chance of smothering my child accidentally as I tend to move a lot in my sleep, however, at the moment our little girl only seems to fall asleep next to mommy and somehow I’ve just fallen straight into it. Where before I’d roll around the bed, I’m completely static now with one arm around Ali and the bedside crib right next to us with the mesh covering folded down.

I’m stuck really… If I force her to sleep in her crib, she’ll keep us up. If I have her in bed though, we might reach a point where she starts rolling which then’ll mean that co-sleeping is even more unsafe for us. I’m thinking a lot of the issue comes from the bed feeling cool compared to our bed so each night we attempt new methods… but each night she’ll sleep for about an hour, cry like crazy, we’ll get her settled, put her back in and then she’ll start crying again… rinse, repeat.

We’re going to keep trying to get her in her crib as I still don’t feel comfortable co-sleeping with her, but I suppose it’ll just be baby steps for the time being.
