To try and distract myself during this month break I’ve been doing a bit of research into a few things I want to get for our baby. At the moment it’s been the bed. I love the idea of co-sleeping and having the baby close at night. I can’t understand having the baby in a separate room where you are unable to hear it. I know I toss and turn a lot at night and keeping a baby in the bed with us is not the safest option. So I have found the perfect co-sleeper cot that attaches to the side of the bed. The only problem is that I can’t find anywhere that sells this bed in Australia, and nothing similar to it. And I’ve really got my heart set on having wooden furniture rather than the cheaper nylon/cloth cot. So it seems that my only option is to buy it from the US and get it shipped to Australia. I’ve probably 6-7 months to see what I can find on eBay or Amazon.
And then a story like this comes out. How can a coroner find that co-sleeping is dangerous based on a few stupid people who weren’t actually co-sleeping… they just fell asleep with the baby. And then to say westerners are fat, alcoholic druggies and that this is the basis in which no one should co-sleep.
