Bed sharing


My baby girl is 6 weeks old and I tried putting her in the crib, swaddled, from our first night home. She just wouldn’t sleep much in there and seems to only be happy if she’s held or near me or my husband. We started letting her sleep between us in bed and I’m just freaked out about SIDS. We’ve been doing this for weeks since it’s the only way any of us get any sleep. We don’t smoke, do drugs, and aren’t super deep sleepers, but it still worries me.

Does anyone else bed share? Information online about the risks are varied depending on which country did the study. We tried putting her in the crib last night and she just won’t sleep.
