I am a new mom and I have been co-sleeping with my baby since he was born. However, I am concerned about whether this practice can affect my baby's sleep patterns and development. I have been reading conflicting information online and I am not sure what to believe.
I understand that co-sleeping can increase the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and I want to ensure that my baby is safe while sleeping. On the other hand, I also want to make sure that my baby is getting enough sleep and not being disrupted by our co-sleeping arrangement.
I would appreciate any insights or experiences that other parents have had with co-sleeping. Has it affected your baby's sleep patterns or development in any way? What precautions have you taken to ensure your baby's safety while co-sleeping?
Thank you in advance for your help!
