Can I co-sleep with my eight-week-old baby?

Postnatal, Your questions

I have an eight-week-old baby and they often sleep in my bed with me because they have stomach aches and this is the only way I can get her to sleep and get some rest myself. Is this dangerous? Thanks, Isabelle


Dear Isabelle, co-sleeping is possible if you do so following safety guidelines. These guidelines are set to prevent unfortunate situations from occurring. Read my article about Co-Sleeping or Shared Sleeping that includes recommendations from public health officials and other recognised organisations.
