If you've decided to bring your baby into bed with you, you may be trying to figure out how be successful with bed sharing and still grab enough shut eye to get you through the next day. Part of the battle is discovering co-sleeping positions to help you sleep better, because the way you're curling up can affect your nightly snooze sesh. If you've been prone to one way of sleeping — on your back, side, or stomach — you may need to retrain your body to try a new position now that you have a little one counting sheep next to you.
But before you can pull those covers up to your chin, you'll need to get your baby situated first. As the website for Dr. Sear recommended, practicing safe co-sleeping starts with creating the right sleep environment for your baby. To do this, you'll need to place the baby next to one parent (instead of in the middle), take precautions to make sure the baby can't roll off the bed, and place the baby to sleep on its back. Once you have checked all these safety measures off the list, you can start to experiment with the coziest position for you.
Don't spend another night staring at the ceiling while everyone else dreams, try out these co-sleeping position for better sleep, and wake up refreshed the next day.
