Co-sleeping question

If you co-sleep do you have pillows and blankets on your bed?

Yes. And older children and sometimes they sleep next to dad instead of me. We break all the "rules" unless someone is really drunk.

Re: Co-sleeping question

When DS was little DH had a pillow but I did not and we used a light weight blanket and made sure to keep it tucked lower than where DS slept. Now DS is going to be 3 next month and we have a mound of pillows and multiple blankets.

Yup. But when they are newb, I sleep in a way that they have like, a bubble around them. On my side, with one knee up, and the baby angled kind away from me. There's no way for a pillow or blanket to smother them. The babe won't sleep by daddy though, he sleeps deep and isn't comfortable with it, and there's not really a reason to not put the babe between me and the mesh bedside thing. I don't take medications (or haven't needed to while I was cosleeping yet) or drink so those aren't an issue.

Re: Co-sleeping question

A flat pillow that is mostly behind me so the edge is under my head (that way if DD pushes herself up, she won't wind up under a pillow. DH has his own on his side but she isn't mobile enough to get anywhere near it) and a quilt that I don't pull up past her legs (too heavy for kicking to move up). Nothing fluffy or poofy.

If it's just me, DH and DD, she can sleep on either side of me because DH is a heavy sleeper but not a mobile one and she sleeps in the 'C' made by my body since I'm curled up on my side. If her brother climbs in, we sleep DH, DS, me, DD, mesh side rail with gap filled with tightly folded towel because my son is super mobile and would probably boot his sister in the head or something. DD is 3 months and DS is 3 years. The best is when DS sleeps on his room and DH falls asleep on the couch - SO MUCH ROOM!

Yep. No thick comforters but I do switch between one sheet and one slightly heavier waffle weave blanket. When I sleep I wear long sleeves so I can tuck blanket around my waist. But I'm not super strict about it. Baby usually ends up flailing arms enough to push blanket down to her waist, or she cries. I put my arm out straight across the top of her head when I'm on my side so if she scouts up she hits my arm, not a pillow. She's starting to wiggle but is so huge that she can't move herself much yet, so she stays where I put her.

Yes. But mine are 15 months and 3 years.

With newborns I use one blanket and one pillow. But the baby is not near the pillow. I make a C shape around baby.

Yes, there are pillows and blankets. Similar precautions to pp.
Just in case.
