My first basenji ..well all 3...slept with me and it was never an issue. When I was gone, the first 2 were crated. The first wasn't destructive...except to every dog on the planet except my male Rottweiler. So crate or death...she was crated. The 2nd one, her niece, was destructive. She never outgrew it. I swear she had scissors in her mouth. No chew toy etc.helped. My third was a snap. I could leave her alone in the bedroom with the door closed and never an issue for 8 years. Then we moved to Israel and I stupidly moved into an apartment and went out , not thinking about how stressed she was, and came home to mass destruction. She discovered a real love for foam mattresses, pillows etc...and electric cords. A risk I'll never take with her.
So don't be stupid like me. If your dog is stressed, big changes at home ...which may include a new baby initially, consider recrating or super fortify the dog area.
By the way, having the baby sleep on a blanket or towel you can then put in the dog sleeping area will help get them used to the scent.
And btw, congratulations on the upcoming baby. 🍼
