Well my husband is a Marine, so when he is home- our time together is very very limited. I want it to be easy to get the baby into the crib. If he counts on sleeping with me all the time.. We will get zero "us" time. Which I know once you have a baby, its going to be harder. I wouldnt mind having the baby by my side at night if I had all the time in the world to try to get alone time with DH. But, I don't. Not at all.

My husband is a Marine too. He had no problems with him being in the room with us while he was that little. Now when he returns from his deployment I plan on having the baby in his own room he will be a little over a year at that point so I'm going to start working on it now. It gives me 5ish months to transition him. I really hope it doesnt take that long.

I don't think DH will care either.. He may like it. He is so in love already, I love that his big Marine ego disappears when he sees u/s pictures or feels him move. He even sang cadences to him through my belly hahahaha, I wanted to cry. But, I just want to be able to have alone time when he goes to sleep. And that would work out better if he was in his own room.

She never went. She went in her big girl bed at 3, but she still sleeps most nights with me & she's 5.

I think cosleeling makes it more fun to get "alone time" as you never have sex in your bed after a while lmao my son was fairly easy to transition but him and I went on vacation and we started the trasition there and when we came home he would only sleep with me for a couple hours in the morning. Just because you cosleep doesn't mean you have to be right next to him all the time. I used to rock DS, then lay him in our bed put pillows along the edges and check on him often. Of course that was before he moved too much.
