What Is A Good Age To Start Your Baby In There Own Room In Their Own Crib During The Night?
Also --
Right Now I Co-Sleep With Her & My SO HATES IT, She Seems To Sleep Way Better & Way Longer If Shes Close To Me.
But I Don't Want Her To Get Super Used To Being In My Arms All The Time Either, I Have A Bassinet Next To Our Bed, But One She Falls Asleep & I Put Her In It, Minutes Later Shes Up & Screaming.
I Breastfeed & Shes 1 Month Old ( If It Matters? )

I waited until they outgrew their bassinet, about 4 months old. About to switch my 4 month old but she will probably be 5 months by the time we get her crib in.



But if you have a working baby moniter, you can start when you first bring them home if you want to. It's no different than the being in a bassinet in your room, they cry, their cry wakes you up, and you take care of them. Only difference if you have to walk to another room to get them.

You Don't Need To Capitalize Every Word In Your Sentence.




Anyways, my daughter was like that & I just let her keep sleeping with me. She is a year old today & still co-sleeps. I love co-sleeping though, so I guess I am of no help lol.

i usually put my in their crib around 4 months. But i do all daytime naps in teh crib so its not a huge shock when they are put in it. Ive never had a problem. My kids loveee their crib. They fall asleep as soon as they are put in it. hope my next baby is the same

Here our government says to wait for 6 months for basic safety reasons. Personally we cosleep because it's healthiest and we love it :) Babies need to eat often and cosleeping is what mama's and babies are designed to do. It's only a 'bad habit' if you have unrealistic expectations and suddenly change your mind, it's never bad for your child as long as it's what they need.



Here is some research and articles

Quoting Mama*AtoZ:" It is very different. Cosleeping reduces risks of SIDS and aids development, it serves many functions. There are lots of reasons that cosleeping is beneficial for mom and baby. "

Never researched it much. And I always heard that the best way for them to sleep is in a crib with nothing else to reduce SIDS. I've never really desired to co-sleep either though. I have in the past when my babies were newborns, a few times being sleep deprived, but I hate not being able to move freely while I'm sleeping. I move constantly so it's never been comfortable with baby in the bed. Plus DH doesn't like it, he's afraid he'd roll over on baby. I tried to explain how rare and the circumstances in which that usually happens, neither of us is obese, but he still is not comfortable with it.

well my daughter has her own bed in our room and every other night she ends up making her way to our bed at some point during the night. We dont mind though, it makes her happy and feel secure and comfortable so until she is ready for her own room ( tells me she wants her own foom/ we all sleep in the same room/co-sleep. She has a giant toy room set up in ways she is always learning and thats how it works for us now :)

i think the staying in one bed thing is true. I did it with my kids and they sleep like angels . Lay them down they know its bedtime and they will go to sleep. My sil's son still gets up in the night at 15 months cause she has him in her bed, in the bassinet in his crib, and leaves to her parents and inlaws every weekend so hes in bassinets there. I feel bad for the poor kid!

See, co-sleeping with my daughter eased my worries but that is just me.
