7 thoughts on “Adventures in Co-Sleeping 

  1. Like you, I didn’t intend to cosleep when I was pregnant. But I wasn’t against it. To actually get some sleep and keep my sanity, I started cosleeping with her from the start. It was glorious. She’s now 7 months old and I’ve coslept with her every single night for some length of time (whole night or a couple of hours). We’ve mostly gotten her to sleep in a crib for most of the night, but now we’re in a hotel that doesn’t have a crib, so cosleeping it is.

    You don’t have to go to sleep when the baby sleeps. As long as you keep a close eye on her (being in the room or using a monitor), she can sleep in the bed alone. Or when it’s early evening, put her to sleep in a safe spot such as the floor, a swing, a bouncer, or even the sofa next to you. Enjoy the bonding!

    1. I always feel like we need to be right there when she’s sleeping on the bed. She’s rolled off the bed once so far (but not while sleeping) and I’m so afraid of it happening again! We really don’t do it that often, though. Thanks for the tips and for stopping by!

  2. I never thought I would co sleep. And didn’t with babies two and three, however with my first she would wake at three every morning and only settle on my chest and that’s where she slept every night until she turned one #marvmondays

    1. My little one wakes up between 3:30 and 4:30 every morning! Sometimes she goes right back to sleep. But when she doesn’t, I will bring her in with us just to get a few more hours! I love sleep! Thanks for reading!

  3. Like you, I swore we would never ever co-sleep. I just didn’t feel comfortable doing it. That was until she outgrew her moses basket, hated being moved into her big cot and developed a fear of sleeping! Unless it was on or near me.
    We tried to get her to sleep on her own, we re-arranged our room to fit her cot next to the bed, removing the sides. We thought that might help but it didn’t. Now she is 2, we are still co-sleeping but not every night. I finally get a decent nights sleep so I don’t mind.

  4. We had a really similar experience to you with co-sleeping. It was never something we had planned or intended to do, but then life and neccessity dictated otherwise. Like you say, they are only small once and as long as you do it safetly I think it is ok 🙂 Thanks for sharing this on #MarvMondays. Emily
