I do plan on using the moby wrap more this time around, but I definitely like the option of having both.
sleeping baby productions | Newborn and infant safety in baby-holding devices

It doesn't mean you cant put your baby in the stroller, they are just recommending doing it without the car seat, as long a stroller can be laid flat and has a protective barrier at the end of the stroller seat, then they are safe. Im not sure why this is, maybe their positioning in them being all scrunched up? I used my travel system all the time with DD1, less so with DD2 because I wore her, ALOT. I found wearing wayyyyyy more convenient for me. The baby stayed sleeping/quiet longer, it was easier to just offer the breast as they were already at the breast anyway.

The thing we have isn't a co-sleeper, it's this

We lie it between us. We also took this when we went to the beach and pool parties in the sumer so we had a safe cool place to lay the baby. For the side of our bed a pack and play with the sleeper on top should work for us. I think. We want to be able to take it with us in the offset we have to travel to visit fam or something.

lol at the bumbo!! We have a purple bumbo... that *may* be ok if we have a boy... but we'll see lol!

Well I certainly wasn't going to bring up co-sleeping since sometimes it's get touchy but we did it with both our girls and loved it. We were SUPER safe about it. DH and I each had our own thin blankets and the baby had hers. DH had a pillow (which he has a weird pillow where it's more like just a pillow case... yeah ) and I had mine, nothing else on the bed. And I kinda have this 6th sense where even if she sighed I woke up. But yeah, I totally agree that SIDS has more to do with the unsafe environment, not cosleeping across the board.

Ugh, talk about people getting touchy! its like if people parent differently than them they feel the need to defend the way they choose to parent because if someone doesn't do the exact same thing then its like they are saying they are wrong or bad parents or something, I never understand that. Unless someone is abusive or hurting their kids I try to just smile and nod and take away from it what will work for us and leave behind what will not. People do get touchy! LOL

I don't use travel systems, babies left in car seats for prolonged periods of time show a significant and dangerous drop in oxygen sat levels, babies should never be kept in a car seat as a carrier, only in the car when completely necessary.
I didn't know this, kinda scary because DS slept in his carseat for the first six months because of his horrible reflux. It was the easiest way to keep his head elevated while he slept.

I would say in this situation, if you are close by and checking all the time, it was warranted. My oldest DD had awful reflux She slept on her belly and I was read the riot act by EV.ER.Y.ONE... I have no idea how she made it to 5, i've done it ALL WRONG, afterall..... lol

We all make the best decisions we can in the moment for OUR kids. Does that make sense?

I guess its scary because it DID feel wrong! I was always worried the carseat would flip over or he would roll out, etc. I slept horrible and so did he! If i would have known about the O2 stats I would have looked into another way. Baby reflux just sucks!
