We pushed the bed up against the wall but that only works if there is no gap (there wasn't with our bed). When he was tiny he lay in the crook of my arm all night, no it wasn't the most comfy but you get used to it. If he's in your arm he won't go anywhere. So I'd be lying facing him with my arm out and him in it if that makes sense? I wrapped the duvet around me, and left my top half free (I wore a long-sleeved top) and he was either in his grobag or just in vest and sleepsuit depending on the weather - he will take heat from you, so you don't need as many layers as you would if he was sleeping by himself in a cot/crib.
I usually roll all around the bed but didn't move while cosleeping with a tiny baby and I'd always wake if he moved too. As he got bigger especially towards the year-old mark this did change, but as a tiny baby I was so aware of him.

Molly liked to have me touching her when she was little so I spent a long time sleeping very uncomfortably with my hand in her moses basket. with this in mind for this baby we have been looking at these as possibilities:
I know there is a cost involved but I would think both of these would work so you could be close to George but not have him in your arms?

Thanks both. Saisi how you describe is exactly how I was lying last night. Ill get H to move the bed snd see if it pushes flush or not.
thanks nb, will lok at those. Ive heard of them but would still rather he'd go in his basket long term. Will have a think :-)

I think you can hire some of the NCT options which may be better short term, although the re-sale value on them is excellent too.
