During naps?

At night?

Since I am downstairs a lot, Tommy sleeps in his swing during the day. I don't turn it on, but it's just good for him to be inclined. At night I have him in the Co-Sleeper bassinet next to my bed. I think he hates it. I have propped up the little mattress and made the mattress softer, but I just don't think he likes it. UGH!

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!

We are working on daytime sleep. Right now LO only wants to sleep being held. She will sometimes sleep in the swing.

At night time, LO wants her crib!

We have to work on naps in a pack-n-play because when I work, that is where she will be sleeping. So far, she has refused to sleep in the pack-n-play.

He takes naps in his crib in his room. We just started that last week and it is working out great! At night, he sleeps in the bed with us. We have an Arm's Reach co-sleeper that we have set up, but he has yet to use it. I'd like to eventually transition him to that and then into his crib at night. But, for now, he sleeps great (pretty much all night) next to me in bed. So, that's what we do right now.

On my chest 24/7... they used to be pretty good sleeping in their bouncers during the day, but since the had colds, they just want to be held.

Night they are on my chest too...

where ever I lay her down lol right now she is sleeping beside me on the couch, bundled up and propped on my nursing pillow. We have a rocking bassinet that I keep by my bed she sleeps in at night, and we drag it out into the living room during the day and she'll nap in there.

She naps like a pro in the bouncer during the day and in her crib at night, but if she's being extra fussy at night I'll bring her into bed with us and DH can usually do a pretty good job at calming her down and getting her to sleep.

During naps Kira sleeps wherever she will, she is on the bed with DF & I right now sleeping away. Usually naps are either in the bouncer or in the bassinet.

At night she sleeps in her bassinet until early morning then I usually move her to her bouncer so I can get an extra hour or 2 of sleep.
So in love with our Princess Kira Jean!!!

Tristan sleeps in a bassinet near me. Sometimes I fall asleep while he is nursing and he sleeps next to me in bed, on his side. I enjoy co-sleeping, but I wake up very sore as I don't move when Tristan is near me.

During naps (or during the day) he sleeps either in my bed or in my arms. Sometimes we can get him to snooze in his crib or bouncey seat. At night mostly in bed with us sometimes we have to move to the couch and he sleeps on me.

At night Matthew sleeps in his bassinet right next to me. He absolutely has to be in a swaddle blanket or he won't sleep. I have to hold him for about 10 minutes after nursing for him to fall asleep and then I transfer to his bassinet. We have a VERY specific routine at night, but it works almost flawlessly... I struggle with a daytime routine. Matthew wants to be held all the time and cries when I put him down. I feel so guilty letting him cry so I usually end up just picking him up again. DH says to just let him cry it outs ometimes so I can get things done, but I just don't feel right about it! Needless to say, we end up spending most of our days on the couch until DH gets home, and then I do housework at night while he's holding Matthew...

During the night she sleeps with me either in my bed or on the couch. During naps she sleeps on the couch, in her crib, in the guest bed, in my bed, in her swing, etc I take a nap with her once a day in my bed.

Baby always sleeps close to me. So if I'm downstairs, baby is somewhere near by with me. Baby sleeps in the bed with me right now till he starts sleeping longer stretches.

At night he's in his crib, and it's wonderful for all of us

For naps, he falls asleep wherever his is. I try to get him into his crib at least once a day because he'll nap a lot longer in there, but he wakes up easily during the day so it doesn't always happen that way. He loves to nap on a quilt on the floor.
