Jo won't sleep unless she is on me. Lol.

I waver on this. Because I sleep pretty good with her next to me at night. She naps when I wear her. Or if I am sitting in the couch while the boys nap. And she is a happy kid. I am nowhere near ready to have her in her room.

So I don't really mind. Until I need to do something!

I am trying to just remember that she is a baby and I want to enjoy her as much as I can (and it's enjoyable to me to hold her a lot). And that she won't do this forever, that I can work on getting her sleeping on her own down the line.

But that niggling thing in the back of my head says "now she will never sleep on her own!"

But she is sooooo sweet when she sleeps!!

Hmmm...I've got two trains of thought here. One says, babies are happier when they're worn, and close to Mom, etc. And that I like to hold Kody and I like to have him near me. On the other hand, my other train of thought remembers how Ethan slept with us for the first year of his life, and how my DH practically had to say "It's me or him," and how we had to have a few days of screaming in the crib before he took to falling asleep on his own.
What about trying to put her down for a nap after she is in a deep sleep? Would she let you do that? At least then she'd get used to the idea a little bit, and maybe it would help down the line?

Ethan is still a cuddle bug, and while Josh is away, he finds a reason to sneak into bed with me every single night. I usually let him sleep with me for an hour or so, till I wake up again, and then carry him back into bed. I like his company, but he wakes me up all night long because he's a busy sleeper.

If you really just want to go with sleeping her with you, just know that at some point you may have a sad couple of days or so when you transition, but meantime you will have bonded very well with her.

I have been doing the same thing! He sleeps so much better that way. He starts in his crib though....

Lilah often naps in the Ergo, she goes to sleep instantly and sleeps so well in there. She'll also sleep in her swing, that's where she takes her marathon naps of 4 hrs......but it takes her longer to go to sleep, and she fusses a bit (so I have to keep going back in and shhhh'ing her and giving her her soother).

Thank you Kiliki... for my adorable signature!
