Well I've finally started co-sleeping ever closer with my daughter. She's no longer in her little bed she sleeps right beside me and wow what a wonderful night sleep I get. However I'm running into a lot of critisism from many people and I'm just not sure how to deal with them. The other day my public health nurse was here telling me how dangerous co-sleeping is. That she can smother herself on my pillow(which i make sure is no where near her face), my breasts (I'm a size H, i unfortunatly can't move them), or get too hot from sleeping near me that SIDS is a concern. I try to ensure that she's not to hot and has no comforter on her just a thin sheet (but I have circulatory problems and need a comforter so I allow it over me but ensure that it only goes up to her hips if it's on her at all). Family members tell me I'm setting myself up for trouble. That she'll never want to leave our bed that she will become too attatched to me, yada yada yada. I've done some of my own reasearch (on this site and others) and am coming to the conclusion that I'm not the only one in the world who wants or feels the urge to do this. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can reduce my fears about hurting her and how to tell people to mind there own buisness?
