Finding the perfect bassinet for breastfeeding is the only option aside from having baby sleep in your bed, which can be dangerous. If you place it by your bedside, the height needs to be plush with the height of your bed mattress.
It’s a good idea not to share a bed with your baby. It’s better to put your baby to sleep in his own crib or bassinet in a shared room. At least after your baby reaches 6 months old (not sitting up or rolling over yet), you should start using a bassinet. After all, look for a bassinet with vertical sides made with air-permeable material, such as mesh. It’s more preferable to those with air-impermeable sides.
