Our LO's moses basket is right next to our bed on my side, but every night when she wakes up for a feed and I feed her lying down I just let her to sleep in our bed for rest of the night I don't see problem with this at all, but last night mil said "you haven't let you sleep in your bed, have you?!" I didn't have a chance to say anything and she said "Omg you have. Be careful it might be a problem to get her out later." I know couple of ppl how have said to me that I won't get her out of the bed if I let her to sleep there... But my sisters did and they never had problems getting them to their own beds.
So how many of you co-sleep/slept? And for how long? Is that true that it'll be a problem to put her in her own bed later?? She goes to her moses basket without any kind of problems for now.
I never properly planned to cosleep i just find if cameron wakes up especially when OH is up for work we get a snuggle for another hour or so but theres plenty girls on here that do plan it and it works great for them
Tell your MIL to keep her unnecessary comments to herself. Do what feels best for you, don't listen to anyone else. Co-sleeping is great and works for some people and doesn't work for others. I've been co-sleeping since he was about six weeks old (wish I had started sooner, I would've gotten loads more sleep). I still co-sleep and enjoy it, I sleep alone so I don't see an issue with it at all. When the time comes to put him in his own bed, I will deal with it then but as of now it works great for us so I'm not worrying about it!
I co sleep and have from about 4 months on. I'm not too worried about getting her into her own bed anytime soon as its just us two anyway. I figure when she's old enough to understand having her own bed, then i'll work on getting her into her own.
If it works for you then why not. I know a lot of people that have struggled to get LO into their own bed but they've all succeeded in the end! I dont cosleep but i have done. I am a heavy sleeper in a single bed so I don't feel safe doing it. But on the nights when Oli is sick sometimes he needs the reasurance that I am there. But then it is usually harder to get back into routine of him in his own bed.
Hollie co-slept till 6 months, then she point blank refused to sleep in bed with us and wanted to sleep on her own. She soetimes co-sleeps now when she is feeling ill, or has a very clingy day. I think when the new baby coes along she may well want to start co-sleeping.
We have co slept since birth. We changed his crib into a side co sleeper by taking a rail off an the pushing our bed against his crib. Now we have our queen up against a twin bed making our bed bigger so we can cos ESP comfortably although LO always seems to snuggly right up to me. I love co sleeping as it feels so natural. My LO is 14 months and we will co sleep until he wants to sleep in his own bed and same with any other babies we have.
