Anyway, if it fits go for it. I have pictures of myself sleeping IN the bathtub when I was little parents folded up blankets and pillows and turned the faucet as tight as my dad could get it and there I slept. Never had an issue LOL
Don't feel bad--we did the same with our 7-yr-old and he sleeps like a rock, as does our 3-yr-old, and we didn't bother keeping it quiet with the others and the 5-yr-old and baby are the lightest sleepers of all. The baby has certainly had the loudest environment to sleep in, but will wake at the turn of a doorknob in another room. And she SCREAMS when she gets woken up mid-nap. We keep a loud white noise machine in there and all retreat to the basement when she naps--and pray no one knocks on the door. Before she was born, I would never have thought I would go to such trouble to keep it quiet for a baby--they need to learn to sleep through the noise :P

I don't think parents can blame themselves for light sleeping kids. IME, it has to do with how they are wired.
