I don't have a picture of my bed or my lap, but that's where she sleeps most of the time. I wish she would sleep in a crib/play yard (one word?). It was never my intention to co-sleep. However, it was the only way we could get any actual sleep. She is cute when she sleeps, but she also gives me back pain because I don't move at all when she is in the bed. Call it sleep paranoia.
K sleeps in his crib in the daytime and when I put him down for bed. When he wakes up for the third time (I dunno why the third...it just seems the excess point) at night, I bring him in my bed (which has a side-carred crib as well) and he sleeps between on me and in his side-car crib. He is a seriously restless sleeper. I wake up sore and achy when he sleeps in my bed though, I am constantly trying to move around him and make sure his face is not jammed in my side. Lol.

I do that too. I am always afraid one of my boobs will trap her and suffocate her. Also, she somehow wiggles closer to me every time I move away. I don't know how she does it since she doesn't have the strength to move herself. I suspect teleportation.
He slept in a bassinet for like a day, he was 5 weeks premature and nursed every 20 minutes. It was just convenient to have him sleep next to me so I didn't have to fully wake up to nurse him. He continued to sleep in our bed for 3 years, until he got too big.
The plan is for her to take naps in the crib (as the room the crib is in is on the main floor of our house where I am during the day) and to sleep in a bassinet at night (so that I don't have to do stairs to nurse at night).
Once she's sleeping through the night (I'm hoping for around 4-5 months like my other two), she'll move into the crib at night. If she's not sleeping through the night when she outgrows the bassinet we'll use the pack 'n' play until she is.
