You should also keep your baby in the same room as you at night, but don’t sleep in the same bed.
The experts said: “It’s important that every newborn enjoys close contact with their parents.
“For example, it’s wonderful to have your baby lie on your chest whilst you’re awake.
“However, sleeping with your baby is incredibly dangerous and should be avoided because parents can roll over onto the baby, the baby can be suffocated in the bedding, become trapped between the mattress and a wall or headboard, fall off of the bed completely… and there’s an extensive list of risk factors that follow!”
Instead, Kevin and Suze recommend keeping the baby in a cot near your bed so you can keep an eye on your bundle of joy without worrying too much.
