We're on our third child. The first two would nurse and then go right to sleep in the bassinet. This one seems to sleep well in the bed, but not in the bassinet. My wife looked online and found these co-sleeping things that help prevent bad things from happening: rolling on top of them, suffocating on blankets, etc.
I asked our doctor and she said she's comfortable with the "side" co-sleepers, but not the ones that lay in the middle of the bed. It sounded like the doctor described something that hangs off the side of the bed. When searching Amazon, though, I can only find full-size bassinets that pull up to the bed or co-sleepers that just lay on the mattress - nothing that hangs off the side. We're probably not interested in buying a whole new bassinet at $150.
Do you think the doc was just mixed up? Have you used one of these products? Do you feel safe with them?
