Why Co-Sleep?

First things first - let's understand why co-sleeping is so beneficial.

  • Better bonding: When parents and babies share sleeping space, it creates an opportunity for increased bonding time.
  • Convenience: Rather than getting up multiple times throughout the night to tend to a crying baby in another room, co-sleeping allows parents easy access to their little one.
  • Sleep quality: Babies often feel more secure when they're near their parents which leads them deeper into sleep.

Get A Bigger Bed

You may want to consider upgrading from that Twin or Full mattress (yawn) if possible OR there are side-bars available online which can be attached alongside mattresses creating additional space while keeping each crib or child within its own section without having any sort of barrier between (it also prevents rolling).

Get Comfy With The Right Pillows And Blankets

Just because there are more people in the bed, doesn't mean everyone needs their own pillow and blankie - this isn't some suburban HOA that forces separate mailboxes. Good quality body pillows can come in handy for both parents.

Remember to use breathable blankets or sheets to prevent overheating. A good rule of thumb is for your baby's face and head to be uncovered while they're sleeping.

Keep Baby Safe

It's important to ensure that there are no gaps between the mattress and wall or any other objects as well a smooth flat surface without bumps. More importantly, make sure there are absolutely no choking hazards around such as tiny toys or bottle caps - those add up quick when searching after 6 hours of REM cycle sleep-drunken-fumbling-oh-my-god-wheres-their-nose manoeuvers.

Co-Sleeping Positions

Everyone sleeps differently but here are three popular co-sleeping positions:


Lay on your back with your arm above your head like Superman flying through space (well.. kinda). Your baby should lay directly beside you with their cheek resting against your chest.


Lie on one side facing towards each other with your baby sandwiched very tightly between parent’s arms not allowing them room/time/space/yoga-poses/rolling over/ move!
