On the fence

My son is 4 months now and we have slept with him in a bassinet by my side of the bed. But the last week or two he has gotten very fussy at night and it seems the only way I can get him to get into a really deep sleep is bringing him into bed beside me and holding him. I don't want it to become a habit but both of us are getting more sleep this way so I'm torn about whether to continue it or not. We don't have a bed frame so if he rolls off the bed hes not going to get hurt since it's so low down, and I put myself between him and my husband so he's not in the middle and at risk of getting rolled over on, but I don't want him to get dependent on my being there to get to sleep either. I definitely think a bassinet by the bed is a better idea than cosleeping due to safety reasons, but I also think as a mother it's up to you to do what you feel is right for your child. So if co-sleeping feels right and you're taking every safety measure then it's ok
