3. Sleep Close

Most doctors will recommend not co-sleeping with your baby. It's better to keep them in a bassinet close to you, but far enough away that you keep from rolling over on them or letting them fall from your bed. Sometimes, circumstances arise where you have to co-sleep for your baby's safety.

My son developed bad reflux not long after coming home from the hospital, and we had to put him in bed with us, so we could ensure he didn't get choked. To do this safely, I simply put my Boppy pillow between my husband and myself and covered it with several blankets to created an elevated, comfy resting place for my baby. The pillow kept us safely separated while still allowing us to be right there in case my son couldn't breathe.
