do you let baby snooze on your chest (while on stomach?)

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Archer loves to sleep like that. In fact, his second night with us, in the hospital, he slept like that the whole night. I asked the nurses if it was okay and they said not only was it okay, but good for baby and me.

He's actually sleeping like that on his grandma right now. :D

I can't do it at night, because my big breastfeeding boobs make it awkward and I can't sleep reclined. DH sometimes does it though.
