So i'm wondering what the thoughts are out there on baby sleeping in the same room as mom and dad for first few months.
Reason:
DH and I are currently in a position where there is no seperate room for baby and we can't afford to move right now. Frankly I don't want to move till after the baby is born anyway because I stress waaaay too much when i move. So our plan is to have the little one's crib in our bedroom for the first few months.
I think it would make night time feedings easier but I'm worried if it will affect what little sleep we do get.
Any thoughts?

We are also having the boy sleep in the room with us, first in a bassinet and then when he graduates in size...his crib. We are also using the Angel Care system so we will be alerted if he isn't breathing during the night, if he was in the other bedroom it might not be as easy to hear the alarm. So we are making sure he is right in the room with Mommy & Daddy.

As for the lack of sleep...since he'll have to be fed every 2 hours at least for the first 2 weeks, we already know sleep is a distant memory once the baby makes his appearance in this world.

I think you will find that most people keep their baby in their room for the first few months. One they wake up so much to feed it's nice to have them in there and two it's comforting to have them in there if you are one that worries. I've had all my kids in our room for at least the first 4 months.

I had our first son in the room until he turn 2 months. I liked having him in there because it made it easier whenever he cried just to be crying all I had to do was reach his paci over or lean over and pick him up. I didn't have to get up. I also worried so I liked having him where I can check on him quickly. I will say that I slept better once he was actually in his crib, in his room, because I didn't get woken up by every little noise he made lol. He grunted in his sleep a ton!

We will have the baby in the room with us about the same amount

My baby will sleep in my arms reach cosleeper that attaches to the side of my bed for the first 5-6mo. I got SO much more sleep this way... My feet didn't even have to touch the ground for most feeding sessions, and in the winter that's huge.

My baby will be in our room for who knows how long. Our house has 3 bedrroms but the kids rooms are very tiny and not big enough to share. Our bedroom is a nice size. We are dedicating one side of our room for the nursery and if we cannot move or think of a better plan then when the baby is about a year or so we will build a room divider so we have our privacy and the baby has her own room.

I think you'll see that most of us are planning to have baby sleep with us in our rooms for awhile. I've done it both ways and I got a lot more sleep with baby in the room with me

Absolutely not a bad idea to keep baby in your guy's room. I plan on doing the same for Latham until I get comfortable with the idea of him being on another floor sleeping in his own room and also he is sleeping some good hours through the night. I think in most instances you really have to do what is best for you. Obviously if you don't have the space it will have to work and will work.

My little ones have always slept in our room for awhile, and this one will too. Our oldest actually slept better in a different room, so she was in her nursery at about 4 weeks. Our DS was in our room for almost 11 months- way too long for me! Youngest DD was for maybe two or three months.

A friend of ours has an Arm's Reach co-sleeper that I am going to borrow this time. Heard it was great!

I kept Quinn in our room until it started affecting both her sleep and ours. Then she moved to her room. I think she was about 4 or 5mo at that point.

I am having baby sleep in the room with us in a bassinet right next to my side of the bed for the first few months/until I feel secure enough to let him move into his own room. I feel like I will be such a nervous wreck, having him right next to me is the only way I will get any sleep at all. Also, it will make life a lot easier for the feedings!

My son was in our room in a PNP for 8 months. This baby will be in our room several months as well. We have a nursery but for night feeding and just keeping an eye on breathing and sleep position, I think it's safer to have them right near you. SIDS scares me to death!! You won't be sleeping thru the night for quite some time anyway. No mater what, you will be awake at least every 3 hours.

Yep, DS was in our room for about 3 months, then he outgrew his bassinet. Baby girl will be in there for a few months also. It's really soo soo soo much easier for night feedings.

I guess it also depends on how your baby sleeps as to if it'll be easier or not.

DS never slept just the 'normal' 2hrs! He slept 3-4hrs between feedings at night from the time we came home from the hospital. At around 6wks he started sleeping from 10pm to 4am, eating then going back to sleep til 8am. THEN at 8wks he sleep from around 9-10pm until 8am every night. All babies are different so I would think if you had one that woke up every 2hrs to eat that it'd be easier to sleep in the same room

None of my babies have never gone straight to their rooms. They have always been in a bed of sorts in our room r right in the bed with us.

Actually, te 5 year old just recently moved to his room in the last six months and the 3 year old is still in our room in his twin bed.

It's what works best for us and you'll find out what works best for you!

I LOVE co-sleeping. My baby will be in my room and in my bed for the first 6 months at a bare minimum. My 2nd DD slept in the crook of my arm until she was 1 year old. I know a lot of people are against co-sleeping, but it's what works for us.
