hi deepthi i dont think there is any harm at all! how do people with no extra bedrooms manage?! u might require extra space but if ur child is unwell she will be comforted by u being next to her. i m tagging our dr moms here as well :) tc Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa Dr. Payal M

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Yes deepthi, you can sleep with her.. and during sick days you are the one for her.. no need to worry about pregnancy... make sure your elder one is taking medicines and have some space on bed as it may cause pressure to the womb one..

Dr. Payal M

agree. aa long as someone doesnt have a contagious disease its ok dont worry. u cannot neglect her. when sick, children need all the more care n love. also think abt it, ur daughter might think tht shes not getting her mom bcoz of the baby inside..not a healthy thought.
