my own preferance is Not to sleep with a 7week old......the risks are immense...this is the right time to get a routine going of bath and bed.....wrapped up in the cot and nice and snug..if the child is crying , a little rock or snuggle is ok...but leave the child in their own bed...or you will suffer later on..x good luck x

I do not think this okay!! It is a very scary thing, and so dangerous. I am trying to get myself out of this, I have a 2 1/2 week old and sometimes I fall asleep with him in the middle of the night, i lay on my back propped up a tiny bit on the arm of the couch, and he lays on his belly on my chest, he loves laying like that, and he wont sleep in his crib, bassinet or swing. I definatly dont recommend it, and am finally getting him to sleep in his swing somewhat, but i just try soooo hard not to fall asleep on the couch with him!!
