I do not think this okay!! It is a very scary thing, and so dangerous. I am trying to get myself out of this, I have a 2 1/2 week old and sometimes I fall asleep with him in the middle of the night, i lay on my back propped up a tiny bit on the arm of the couch, and he lays on his belly on my chest, he loves laying like that, and he wont sleep in his crib, bassinet or swing. I definatly dont recommend it, and am finally getting him to sleep in his swing somewhat, but i just try soooo hard not to fall asleep on the couch with him!! View Thread
I am wondering if anyone knows if this is normal and if it is okay, when should I start worrying? My 2 1/2 week old son, woke up 2 times in the middle of night to eat and did good, but now it is almost 3 in the afternoon and he has been sleeping all day and not wanting to eat. He has only had about 4oz since his feeding at 6AM. Please help!View Thread
