Another one was better moderated so it was permitted with restrictions or the thread closed. Those who are against bed sharing are militant about it, which is why I'm always hesitant to say anything online, some insane people go real life, and most who think bedsharing is dangerous aren't calm about it.

I agree itís under attack. They were very vocal about baby being on his back in a crib or bassinet in the hospital this July when I had my fifth. It was also a big point of contention in a Pregnancy group I was in. So much so that for DS3ís first few days of life, I re-researched bedsharing like I had done with my first. I almost felt like I was being irresponsible though I did it with my other DC. I was reassured again when I saw risk factors of smoking in the house, mom being under the influence of drugs/alcohol and reminded that breastfeeding is actually protection for babies, helping to prevent death of infants.

I had a Snuggle Nest with my first and it kept me from going insane. I was so afraid of rolling on her, as she was my first. She would not stay asleep unless I was touching her. I went the first 3 days of her life without sleep. I sent my DH to the store and told him not to come back until he found one. (Mine looked different than this one but it's the general idea.)

When she got too big for it we bought an Arm's Reach Co-Sleeper. It can be used as a regular pack 'n play, too. I also used that with my second baby and our first was still in our bed when he was born.

This one looks good, too. https://www.amazon.com/RONBEI-Bassin...xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
I used a snuggle nest with DD1, also. And DH voluntarily left the bed for peace of mind.
