Bed sharing

I didn't plan on sleep sharing, but its kind of worked out that way, and I'm mostly enjoying it. 

Two questions:

what safety precautions do you take? My son is almost 4 weeks. 

when do you plan to move your LO to his or her room, if at all...or if you have already done so, what was the transition like?  

TIA!! I am a bit worried, only because I don't want to bed share forever, so successful transition stories are appreciated!

  • We put our little one higher than where we sleep (so our heads are at his legs/feet). I am very aware that he is there but my husband is a deep sleeper who likes the throw his arms around. Being lower stops us from hitting him and the blanket covering his

  • I am in the same position as you are.  My little girl will be 6 months old this month, has never slept well, and sleeps best in bed with me.  I worry about the safety as well as the transition to her own bed down the road.  I bed shared
