During the last week I have been letting Darion sleep with me when the sun starts to rise and we get natural light coming into our bedroom. It started because around 5:30-6am he would flap around in the bassinet restlessly. So one day I laid my flatter body pillow next to me and laid him on it to sleep and he cuddled up next to me and went right back to sleep.

Now that he is so darn big I don't fear rolling on him and squishing him or something. I've learned how to hold him so that I don't block his airways but he freaks out and slaps around like crazy if even his burp cloth is put over his nose so that makes me feel better too. The first few times I didn't sleep at all. But now I am sleeping with him and I'm really enjoying it.

I don't think that I will ever go to co-sleeping all night long but I really like it during the early morning hours with him. Now when I go to pick him up I say: "Do you want to sleep next to mommy?" And he gets all happy and starts super smiling and he seems so comfy and falls right asleep against me. I know that its something that I will always remember.

Has anyone else tried co-sleeping with the baby who doesn't normally do it?
