Yep, the Bible definitely addresses everything!
The Bible does not say that she overlaid the baby. It quotes the woman as saying that she overlaid the baby. The baby probably died of SIDS which people used to assume meant that the baby was overlaid for all the years up until cribs at which time they named it, "crib death."

I do feel, though, that God puts it in our hearts the right thing to do in any and every situation. We just have to listen. It bothers me when people will say that you shouldn't follow your feelings because your heart isn't always right, but doesn't God dwell in our hearts after we've been born again?

I couldn't imagine making me and the baby sleep seperately at night. I haven't had any children yet, nor am I pregnant, but I already desire to hold a baby in my arms as I fall asleep.

That is a common fear, but truthfully, it is almost unheard of for a non-intoxicated to sleep soundly enough with a baby to hurt him or her. Here is some very helpful info about co-sleeping from the wonderful Dr. Sears.
