Since this is a related question, I'll go ahead and hijack the thread and ask.
For those of you who co-slept, did you feel that you got more sleep that way? In some of the books I've read, it talks about just rolling over and give the baby a breast, and the mom can even sometimes fall asleep while breastfeeding. The mom can usually wake up when the baby is just a little bit fussy and not all-out crying, which might save the dad from waking up. I'm not sure if I'd be able to do this because I'd worry about smothering the kid (not that my boobs are THAT big
). It sounds great in theory, though, and hopefully is better than having to go down the hall to get the baby out of her crib.
