How many co sleepers do we have?

Does your baby sleep right in bed with you or do you have a sidecar type thing (crib, arms reach co sleeper...etc)?

Do you enjoy co sleeping or do you do it just because it works well for you and baby?

Do you have any plans to move baby out of your bed any time soon?

Bailey goes to bed in her bassinet, but wakes between 12-2am and then comes to bed with us. I do it for convenience. Bailey wakes up if you move her while she is sleeping so we get more sleep this way. I love it come morning time because I get to sleep longer, during the night, not so much because I can't roll over when I get uncomfortable

long story short, Peyton is the exception child not b/c she's spoiled but NOTHING works for her and she hates everything! but now her crib is way to old and scary to be sleeping in it and she has outgrown her bassinet and since it's just me and her we sleep together

Does your baby sleep right in bed with you or do you have a sidecar type thing (crib, arms reach co sleeper...etc)? we have a crib and a mini crib that are both in storage and an arms reach co-sleeper that is for all intensive purposes a really expensive bed rail. she wants nothing to do with any of it. since she's gotten better at sitting up i've been sitting her in the co-sleeper while i get dressed so at least it's getting some use.

Do you enjoy co sleeping or do you do it just because it works well for you and baby? i love co-sleeping, it feels natural to me. i can't imagine having her in another room all night, i would be up checking on her every 15 minutes. plus it is sooo much easier when she wakes up at night and wants to nurse.

Do you have any plans to move baby out of your bed any time soon? i figure sometime before she goes to college i'll boot her out of the bed.

Jillian sleeps right in bed with me. She had been always sleeping on my chest but now she's getting to big. Usually I lay on my side and snuggle her up against me. She also falls asleep nursing a lot so both of us are on our sides belly to belly.

I really do enjoy it. I think it brings us both a lot of comfort. I love that when I wake in the middle of the night I can lay there watching her sleep for a bit if I want to. I love that when I snuggle her up to me she sighs this big happy sigh and then just relaxes.

I'm not sure when we'll move her out of our bed. We will at some point when it feels right.

Ansley sleeps with us still we have an Arm's Reach Co-Sleeper. It used to sit next to the bed, but it it now at the foot of the bed. We found she gets better sleep being down there. She would stir everytime I turned which is a lot.
I do enjoy it, but can't wait to have my bed back. When she starts pulling herself up we'll put her in with our 3 year old - Addison.

Peyton sleeps in bed with us and always has. I really enjoy it but I do want to move her soon. She is starting to get really wiggly at night, and I don't like that she is completely dependent on me to sleep. Sometimes I want to stay up late but instead I have to go to bed because she is tired. :/

We'll likely be moving her to a crib in a few months, but will probably still cosleep part time.

Ty starts the night out in her bassinet right next to our bed. After she wakes up she comes into bed with us

I love having her right next to me, she sleeps better and so do I. Much more conv. for nursing too. My favorite thing is waking up with her touching my face and looking at me
Do you have any plans to move baby out of your bed any time soon?
None

Oh isn't that the best? I love that now if I move away from her a little bit she manages to scoot herself back over for some more cuddling. Makes me realize how much she likes it.

Do you enjoy co sleeping or do you do it just because it works well for you and baby? I enjoy it and it has worked well up until about 3 weeks ago. Now Ben is getting very restless

Do you have any plans to move baby out of your bed any time soon? Transitioning now due to safety issues, Ben tries to crawl away! He will still be in bed with me in the mornings though so I won't miss out on our snuggle time.

Do you enjoy co sleeping or do you do it just because it works well for you and baby? Both!

Do you have any plans to move baby out of your bed any time soon? No time too soon, but plans are in the works to transition Hugo out of the crib and into the big bed and then transition Sergio to the crib, maybe this summer, depends on nursing and his activity level.

He is super active and wakes up crawling and all kinds of stuff. I could not deal with going to another room and resettling him every time.

We are slowly trying to ween him of our bed.. really just so he is used to sleeping on his own and it isn't a huge shock later on. So he sleeps in his crib the first half of the night then comes with me after he wakes for his feeding

Do you enjoy co sleeping or do you do it just because it works well for you and baby? Both

Do you have any plans to move baby out of your bed any time soon? He sleeps maybe a total of 2-8 hours in his crib. It depends on his mood and how much he is teething that night. I want him sleeping totally on his own before we start TTC baby #2. I don't want him to think that he is being booted because of the baby and I can't have them both in the bed. DH doesn't have any plans of moving him out of the room though. When I asked him the other day what age he saw DS moving into his room (which is upstairs and our room is downstairs) he said not until at least 3 years. I don't see DS sleeping in the same room once baby #2 is born that is not fair to him. I never thought that having him upstairs would upset us so much... We looked for a downstairs master because I have terrible knees.

Saige sleeps with us and it works great for us. Recently however she has been starting to crawl away when she wakes up so I'm concerned she might fall off the bed. We're talking about slowly transitioning her to her crib now.

We put a extra long toddler bed rail on my side of the bed. It works for us. Just thought I would make the suggestion
