  1. The woman putting her newborn in a cardboard box is certainly cancelling out the organic materials she used to cover it. It may be cheap to put in place, but I would never put a newborn in a corrugated cardboard box thinking it was safe, just cheap. I wonder what the glue and disintegrating cardboard does for the baby’s lungs.

    I don’t consider having the baby’s bed jammed up against the mother’s bed as co-sleeping. If that is the case, I co-slept with all three of mine because the used bassinet I had for all three was definitely within reach, placed where it touched my bed.

    • When our oldest was born, we were very young and didn’t have a lot of money, living in a tiny apartment which wouldn’t fit a crib. Out of necessity, we used a large (new) laundry basket for his crib the first two months until we were able to move somewhere a little bigger. It’s kind of charming to look back on the photos we have of that time.
