Not sure this is the right place to post this, but I am wondering what you cosleeping moms do when you have a bad cough and can't take anything for it because you sleep with your baby. My baby will be 8 months on the 11th and I don't know how long I need to be hypervigilant when I co-sleep with her. I am assuming that taking dextromethorphan (DM) isn't a good idea with an 8 month old because of how it can affect my sleep. Do you ladies have any ideas or suggestions? I am not dealing with this yet, but I usually get a cough this season, so I am just wondering what my options are. I have always co slept and I just don't think she would sleep without me, but I don't want to put her in any danger from me being on something that would make me less responsive to her when we are sleeping.
