we co-slept and I never lost any sleep If you're breastfeeding co-sleeping is totally safe, if you're bottle feeding (even pumped milk) it is not as safe.

I just left my boob out of my tank top and she would latch herself on and I would sleep right through it. people always asked me if I was worried about rolling over on her, and I would respond "Do you roll off the edge of the bed at night? No? Because you KNOW its there"..your mother's intuition is very strong.

If you think about it, how scary for a brand new baby to get put in a crib in another room (or even in the same room) far away from his momma that kept him safe and warm for the past 40 weeks?

Babies who sleep in a different room have a much higher SIDS rate as well. Keep your baby close
