I have had my son sleep above me twice and it works great. Only issue is getting him in and out in the same bugnet. I made a Fronkey bugnet and put him hanging above me. He hangs way too low but then again he is almost 4 and I wanted him close. by close I mean he is young and if he wakes up and needs too pee he is only a foot above me should he forget where he is and try to get up. Good thing is he has hung a few times now and I think he gets it so I will try putting him next to me next time.
Just a few pics of his hammock with mine. Wish they where better. His hammock is blue and its set above my bridge hammock.
