I love bedsharing with my kids. Babies have been sleeping next to their mommas for thousands of years. I don't think their is anything wrong with it as long as you make sure not to have blankets and pillows near their face etc like you said. I sleep better and they sleep better. I recently also read a study that said that kids that bed shared with their mom for the first year of life grew up to be ten times more confident as an adult than those that didn't(which I think must be true cause my mom bed shared with my youngest bro and not me and my other brothers but my youngest bro is such a confident and self assured young man where the rest of us...well lol yeah we are way more insecure). I also read that the risk of SIDS go down if the baby was near their mom. I say go for it! Come over to the well rested side with the rest of us crunchy bed sharing mamas!
