Hilaria Baldwin Says She Can No Longer Co-Sleep With Son Romeo ‘for His Safety’ but ‘It Is Hard’

Actress Hilaria Baldwin has decided to stop co-sleeping with her son Romeo for his safety.

The 35-year-old uploaded a photograph of herself breastfeeding her baby boy and accompanied it with an emotional caption.

She explained to fans that like many mothers, she’s cherished the bonding moments through cuddling with her 11-month-old but her youngest can no longer sleep alongside her and husband Alec Baldwin at night.

I co-sleep with my kids while nursing them. It’s usually about a year. I feel very safe with it because Alec and I are both very light, stationary sleepers. Romeo has begun to move around much more than my other ones while he sleeps. So I’ve decided that, for his safety and our sleep, he is going to learn to stay in his crib over night. It is hard…because I’m going to miss this…the cuddling at night. This pic is the last time he was in bed with us…and yesterday was the first night he wasn’t in bed with us. It was tough, and there were definitely tears—both his and mostly mine…but I know that everyone has to grow up. We will just have to cuddle that much more during the day.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), while babies need to be fed at night and many moms feel comfortable falling asleep while breastfeeding, experts warn against bed-sharing to maintain a child’s safety and welfare.

As previously reported by Dearly, police and healthcare providers say it’s never a good idea to sleep with a baby due to sleep-related infant deaths.

However, moms following Baldwin’s post said they too often find themselves co-sleeping with their little ones.

But, unfortunately, it’s a risky practice.
