A bassinet and how long to keep a baby in your room?
Was doing some "I am bored" research... How long do you keep a newborn in your room for in the bassinet? At what point do you know its time to put the baby in its own room.... I remember my mom telling me stories that she would constantly wake up putting her finger or a mirror my by nose to make sure I was breathing (she was, and still is a nut ) I think the first few months you'd want the baby by your side to check on things, and be there immediately. I figure the 3 month mark or right around there would be a good point... I guess at about that time they would be sleeping through the night and at the point where they would outgrow the bassinet. BTW why are bassinets so damn expensive?!?
My plan is to use the bassinet until the baby hits the weight limit or can sit up whichever comes first (as it would be unsafe at that point). I haven't used one before so I'm not sure about the weight. (we had a moses basket). Everything is so expensive when it comes to babies
From googling around that seems like a good time based on the consensus. And yes, everything is expensive when it comes to babies. For the love of god, who would spend $1000 (USD) on a stroller?!?! I was just looking at amazon, and almost fainted.
We kept her in with us for the first 3 months. The reason we moved her into her cot next door was actually because we'd come back off holiday and realised that her moses basket was too small for her! I didn't want to let her go but she slept fine in there and it was nice to have our bedroom back...
my 5month old is still in my room in a moses basket which i think is smaller then a bassinet, she is a shorty though, but its getting too small for her now so will move her 2 the crib which she will stay in until its too small or she can sit up on her own, then she will go in the cot in her sisters room, if they didnt have to share i might have moved her sooner, but saying that my oldest was in with me until nearly 8months lol x
my daughter is a big baby and we kept her in her basket till she was 5 months. Only moved her cause she could almost touch the top. They advise 6 months at the hospital to keep them in with you as it reducese the risks of sids. However we moved kacey at 7 weeks. Cause she was sleeping 12 hours a night at this point but she was such a noisey sleeper we where up all night. I do have a sensor pad movement monitor which flashes in my room with all her movements. Dont think id of slept without that x
both my babies outgrew the moses basket by 2 months then i still kept em in my room in the cot until 6 months like your mum i get slightly paranoid and checked they were breathing in the night lol the main reason i kept both mine in my room so long though is because im a really deep sleeper and i was worried i wouldnt hear em in another room another thing i have learnt is not to spend too much money on the pram/pushchair because every few months i get sick of em its like wearing the same coat for ages haha im limiting myself to £300 this time for first pushchair my sister recently paid £700 quid for hers and shes already bored of it ouch!
