      Does anyone here co-sleep? I did with my first two, and I still am with my 3rd. I never had any issues rolling over on them or any of the things you hear on TV. I got lots more sleep than if they'd been in their own cribs and I felt like they were safer. Studies have shown that mothers can actually act as incubators, regulating temperature breathing and stimulating babies if they stop breathing (SIDS).

      What do you guys think about this?

      I did this a few times myself but only when they wouldn't settle during the night and it was really late and I was so tired I would drop off. Wasn't something I was keen on doing because of all of what you hear however if I had to do it I would do.

      My aunt did this a lot with my cousin when she was a baby. XD I mean, co-sleeping with her and comforting her when she's feeling under the weather or ill and couldn't sleep a wink because she was getting nightmares and stuff. My cousin used to get up in the middle of the night when her mom didn't sleep around her.

      I let my 3rd child sleep with us whenever he wanted until the 4th child was born.
