This post pushed me to move Clairre to her bedroom last night. We both did sleep better. She loves to lay completely sprawled out, apparently. Lol! She's still up but goes back down pretty quickly. So far, so good...

DH said today that he wasn't ready to have the baby so far away and asked if maybe we could bring him back to our room for a little while longer, pretty please? There's plenty of time for independence later, right? It doesn't have to be right now, right? I'm so torn. I want him to get used to his own room while he's still flexible, but I feel so... attached.
It's completely normal for a baby to sleep with his parents. This season in their lives is going to pass so, so quickly; if you want to enjoy the closeness and comfort of having him sleep next to you, then do it! He will be ok and he will eventually learn to sleep on his own.

We've done four nights so far with Max in his crib. The first night was HORRIBLE. I was in his room every half hour and neither of us slept. But since then it hasn't been so bad. I actually think he likes being in his crib - he was running out of room in his rock n play! He sprawls out and rolls all around his crib. Last night he only fussed once and that was because he wanted his paci back in his mouth.

And when momma is missing him i either stalk him on the video monitor or sneak in and peak at him. As of right now i'm not sleeping any better though - i'm constantly checking on him!

Sarah's been sleeping in her swing...in our room. The last two nights I've put her in the bassinet part of the pack n play and pushed it up to our bed. She sleeps ok. Not the best just yet and still has to be swaddled. Though she's able to break free. I guess it's time to either try sleeping without the swaddle or buy a bigger swaddler! LOL

I wonder if he's going to grow up always feeling like somebody's watching him...



He may be getting plenty of sleep but momma can't quit checking him every half hr to make sure hes breathing!

Yes to this. We do have him in his own room right now, but I'll rock him extra long at night, or bring him to bed in the morning for a cuddle. I keep thinking he will never be this little again, and we want to soak it up while we can.

I'm way too paranoid to do it yet. My original plan was to do it from the beginning. We had that Tommee Tippee monitor with the movement/breathing sensor pad and it kept going off numerous times per night, even during a time when I watched her belly moving the whole time! I just made me too nervous. So, I got a cosleeper for in our bed, and now she's in the bassinet next to our bed. (With the Snuza )

We'll transition her after she turns 6 months when the SIDS risk goes down. Like I said, I'm paranoid.
