Unless it's latex, foam mattresses/toppers will off-gas a lot of chemicals. I would also worry about baby getting too warm, sinking in, etc.

If you want to take it off the bed, the topper will be a lot easier to store if you stuff it into a vacuum bag and suck the air out of it.

I wouldn't assume that b/c you don't get warm, you LO won't since you are two different people. DH was in the same bed as me and was fine but I thought I was going through menopause it was so bad.

I have a tempur-pedic. We started out co-sleeping on it. I switched to a snuggie nest between us. Only because of my own nervousness though.

Re: Memory foam mattress...risk of SIDS??

My parents have one on their guest bed and sleeping there with dd SUCKS! I lay down with dd to nurse her to sleep and then scoot away to sleep, but with the foam, it's really hard to get away. Because I'm sunk down into the bed so much, dd just rolls into the crater and is right on top of me.
Anyway, I would say that I don't think it's super safe, but it's also super uncomfortable anyway.

We have a memory foam topper (2" thick) We've co-slept with DS (now 4 1/2 months) since birth. I never thought of it being a hazard. He doesn't seem to sink down into it at all.

Totally. I do have the firmer tempurpedic of the 3 models but I don't really sink very deep into it and DD doesn't really at all. Also, to the poster that said about the memory foam being too soft for their developing spines, I think that would be any mattress because I have never seen a mattress for adults as firm as a thin crib mattress.

They need proper support too at such young age; it's really bad for their back they say according to our pediatrician.

Looks comfy to me like other people said, go with your gut, our mattress is the top quality of the temper pedic much firmer then the knockoffs and low grade tp

Re: Memory foam mattress...risk of SIDS??

We've got a topper. We really weren't concerned about our son sinking in as much as my husband was freaked out about rolling over on him. I took our changing pad with a cover and swaddled him and he laid on that - worked great. Kind of like a snuggle nest, but DS didn't like the confinement of those things.
