Do you let them sleep with a blanket/stuffed animal?
Just curious; Evan is still sleeping in our room in his crib. I swaddle him at night but he often breaks free. I'm thinking of moving his crib into his room to give DH & I a break (Evan is going through a stage where he's not really sleeping at night; instead he's waking up to crawl/play & he makes a lot of noise). I'm struggling with what to do & feeling somewhat guilty....
McKinley is in my bed
She used to be a wonderful sleeper since newborn but the last 4 months have been hard.. She's up every 2 hours so its just easier to have her in my bed where she doesn't fully wake up as I can get to her before then.
We sleep with blankets but she's not into sleeping with stuffed animals just yet. She likes to just nestle up against me and snuggle.
I have lots of stuffed animals at the head and foot of Ethan's crib. He sleeps in a sleep sack so there is no need for a blanket unless its really cold. I put the animals in because sometimes he will wake up really early and play with them for a while then go back to sleep. We just moved in with my parents so we all share a room.
Still in a his pack and play in our room. We're about to move into a new house, and we joke about just putting his crib in our room downstairs...except I don't think I'm joking. He spends the mornings in bed with us. I guess he's probably ready, but I don't know if I am...

Tristan's crib is in our room, with the railing off on one side against our bed.. so it is kind of like co-sleeping. I take him in when he needs to and put him back when he had to go back. He was a great sleeper until 4 months, but after his 4 months' shots, teething that came after it and now I am guessing teething and insecurity, he is up a lot. He sleeps in a sleep sack, but he also likes having a soft blanket near his face, he falls asleep better with it so I let him.
Addy sleeps in her crib in her room, has been in there since 8 weeks. She sleeps with blankets on her, but no stuffed animals. She sleeps fairly well, although the last 2 nights has woken up at around 12 and taken a bottle, although I think that is just for comfort and chewing. She has teeth coming in, so I am almost certain this is why she has been waking. Otherwise, she was waking up at about 4:30, eating and sometimes going back to sleep.
Raini sleeps in her crib in her room has been since 3 mths. She has a few stuffed toys in there with her. Recently I had to go creative to keep her from getting her feet stuck in the crib rails but otherwise she is doing well.
