my baby is 8 weeks old and he has been sleeping in bed with me since he has been about 3 weeks. before then he was sleeping in a basinet. i brought him into the bed because he seemed to like it more. i am breastfeeding him.
my husband does not really want him in our bed because his mother rolled over and killed her child. so his mother and him keep telling him it is very dangerous.
my sister slept with her baby until he was three and she keeps telling me it is better for both of us and i also read that co-sleeping is good for him. when i do try to put him in the crib i just feel bad for him and as soon as he cries a lot a bring him back to bed. sometimes if he sleeps there then i will sleep on the floor.
however, at this point i am not really sure what is best for him. i don't want my feelings of wanting him next to me to overide what is really safer for him.
my husband suggested we put him in a holder in our bed. does anybody do that or think its a good idea?
any thoughts or recommendations? i just want to do what is right.
