by at .  Updated at .

The phrase "sleep like a baby" is common because, well, have you ever seen a baby sleep? They're so peaceful and angelic that it's hard to resist giving them a good snuggling, sometimes even all night long.

    My wife and I will cuddle with our little one, I will sleep with here when my wife takes our little guy to the bus, I work nights. I have Co-Slept with all my children and have never had a problem... A child is not like a pillow, you sense they are there, not once have I ever rolled over on a child, even when my wife puts our little girl in the bed, I'm sleeping I don't roll over on her its natural.

    I slept with my first baby and I sleep for a few hours a night with ny second baby, I don't sleep in bed with blankets and pillows I sleep on the couch proped up and my baby on her back on my chest, having a baby away from you in thier own room does not make a difference in my house, my first can sleep alone without problems.

    I am currently pregnant with my first and I will NOT co-sleep with my baby. I do not think cuddling and the convenience of having your infant right there is worth their life.
    My husband and I are not even planning to do a bassinet in our room. We are starting baby off in his own crib. I have personally witnessed a friend of mine who co-sleeps and now that she has her 2nd son her 1st is having a very hard time adjusting to being put in his own bed and is making life much harder.
    I completely agree with baby being in the parents room but not their bed.

    My nephew died of SIDS. He was sleeping with his mother at the time, she woke up and he wasn't breathing. Ever since then I vowed to never cosleep. Instead of sleeping with my son when he was born my husband and I kept a bassinet next to our bed and I would sleep with my hand in the bassinet holding his hand to keep him happy and sleeping. I was so terrified that the same thing would happen to him some nights I had a hard time sleeping.
