Newborn and Sleeping in the Same Bed - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Hi, I am Robin Goldstein and I am the author of The New Baby Answer Book. It really is okay to let your baby sleep in bed with you. I know that is not difficult to answer because I know sometimes we worry that we are going to make our babies a little too dependent on us if we allow them to sleep in bed with us. It is a really terrific way to help babies learn to trust you. To help babies learn that they can really count on you to be there to meet their needs. It is also really bottom line a lot easier on parents, when babies sleep in bed with them and they do not have to constantly get up out of bed and have their sleep interrupted so much. So from me, from my professional experience, I give it the thumbs up. It is okay to have your baby sleep in bed with you.
