What makes you Comfortable...
First I'll start by saying that his is MY OPINION. I've had friends whos mothers rolled on top of the baby and smothered them to death. So no I don't think it's a good idea to sleep in the same bed with them while they are young (under the age of 9 months or so). Also, they become dependent on sleeping in YOUR bed and not theirs when its time for them to sleep in their own bed(s). I learned that with my first kid. He slept in my bed till he was nearly three lol. What I will give as advice is that you get a bassinet. They have a wide range of different types, some that even connect with your bed, so you can be close to your little one. I breast feed /fed all my children so, I liked to stay close to them at all times, especially night time because I got tired of running back and forth. In the end, its what makes YOU feel comfortable as a mother. Hope I helped. Congratulations

He sleeps in a bassinet next to our bed all through the night, but early morning after he eats, we let him snooze with us.. he loves it, we love it.. he's only little for so long :)
