She sleeps religiously from 8pm-830/9am
Ditto... Noelle still loves sleeping like that...

Abby has slept in her own room since about 4 months old, but she is always welcomed into our bed when she wants to. Anna sleeps in our bed most of the night. Whenever she wakes up around the time we go to bed (usually right before or right after) we bring her into our bed with us so we don't have to get up int he middle of the night and get her. She sleeps in her bed for naps and to start the night.

DD co-sleeps with us, and we have no intentions of moving her anytime soon. For the new baby, we are going to side car the crib.

Thuya is partly bed-sharing and sleeping in his crib beside our bed. He will sleep by himself until he wakes up in the middle of the night and needs to cuddle with his Daddy.

The new Babe will be bed-sharing and Thuya will have his own room.

We have a little pack and play that is the size of a bassinet - we keep that by the bed and she will probably sleep in it most nights. I'm not against co-sleeping by any means, as I did it at some point with Dean, but I also think that it contributed to his regression in night time waking and only made it more difficult to get him to STTN (which was a must since I was working FT).

We'll just do what feels right with Audrey. Right now, we have a queen bed and it feels pretty cramped even with DH and I, but if we get a king, I'd probably be more willing.

Callum use to start out in the bassinet next to our bed and end up in bed with me every night.

Thank you for my beautiful siggy Vicki!

See my growing belly!

Thayden sleeps in our room in his bed, but when i get him up to breastfeed at night or the morning he ends up in the bed with us for a few hours. We tried moving him to his own room and it wasn't happening lol

We're still cosleeping with DS at 14 months old. I have tried unsuccessfully to move him to his crib a couple of times over the last 2 months (the crib is right next to my side of the bed) but he wants nothing to do with it. The minute he wakes up and realizes where he is, he loses it. Nothin calms him down except coming into our bed. I've read the No Cry Sleep Soultion (more than once) but sadly I am too tired and frustrated most times to stick with her ideas consistently, so it's really my own fault.

I do plan to cosleep with our new addition as well, but I really want to get DS moved over to sleeping in the crib all night first.
