Re: Co-sleeping families who live in extremely cold climates...
My babe arrived in mid January, in Chicago. That's pretty cold. We had a big comforter, but it never came up higher than my waist. For my top I wore just a fuzzy bathrobe, which I left open at the front so babe could nurse. He was skin to skin virtually all the time, and his back was kept warm by my arm wrapped around him. Oh and he wore socks and a hat to bed.
