The Right Way to Sleep With Your Baby
With a newborn baby, some mothers do find easier to sleep with the baby which makes night time feeding more convenient. However, before you proceed make sure that you take certain precautions to avoid harming the child. Make sure you’re co-sleeping on a firm mattress, keeping just light bedding and covers so that they don’t smother the baby. Sleeping in the “C” position is considered the safest where you’re lying on your side facing the baby who is on their back. Your lower hand circles the baby’s head and your knees are drawn up to the baby’s feet. This helps to keep the bedding away from the baby.
