We started Kaylie off in her pack and play but that lasted for about 5 seconds b/c I was always up checking on her and she was always up nursing. We ended up co-sleeping for 10 months until she weened. We all just slept better that way.

We will start off with Scott in our room too. I want to try co-sleeping again but that is up to him. I guess it will just depend on what type of baby he is. After having DD I became a big beliver in baby led parenting...it is easier than making plans and getting mad when baby has other idea's

Erin slept in a bassinet right next to my bed for the first 5 months. She then grew out of it and got transitioned to her crib. The only times she ever slept in bed with me was when I fell asleep during her nighttime feeding. =Ž Don't be surprised when you wake up with a baby next to you and you don't remember how she got there!

I have always had my children in my room for about 3 months. the reason being is i really am scared that something will happen to them and i wont get to them as fast. So the same with Makenna again.

I tried a bassinet with both of my girls but it never worked out so we ended up cosleeping. This time I am going to get a co-sleeper that fastens to the bed because we have downsized from a king to a queen and there wont be as much room. Hopefully the baby will agree with our arrangement.

We're actually going to have the baby's crib in a small nook in our bedroom, so that's where he'll sleep from day one. With the others, we've used a bassinet in room until they were sleeping through the night (~6-8wks), but with the crib right there we won't need that this go round.

Gaby slept in a bassinet in my room until she was 6 weeks - and then she went into her own room (in her bassinet)...

At first, she will be in an Arm's Reach co-sleeper. When she is ready to transition, she will go to her crib in her room.

Gavin would start out in the bassenette but those middle of the night feedings just led to co sleeping.

I LOVE my bassinet. I didn't want one but DH's Mom insisted and I am so greatful for that. I don't think I could have him in the crib right now. It's too far away.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy

We have a cradle that will be in our room for the first while. Then we will transition to the crib in the baby's room.
Thank you Zarziza for a beautiful siggy

We are going to do the bassinet until they outgrow it and then they are going into a crib. I found a really cute bassinet that turns into a changing table, sleeper and bassinet. It also is removeable for on the go use.

I guess I'm one of those meanie moms who needed her sleep, but Noley slept in his crib in his room since the first night we brought him home----he was a 9' walk from my bed, and I had a breathing/sound monitor on him--I really enjoyed being able to get up with him and rock him to BF in his room. DH was afraid to roll on him if we co-slept, so we've never done that---we'll occasionally put him to sleep that way if we're away from home, but then I put him in his pack n play right away. He developed really good sleep habits early, and he's always had that little space of his own, with his special toys and books. I'm planning on having #2 in his/her own crib again, but I guess I'll worry about that when I get there. If I did that, that baby would likely be in a crib in our room so they would get used to that space before going to their own room.

Lucky mother to five!
