I love snuggling with Sharkie and would love to have him in bed with me all night every night. John on the other hand wants him in his crib or pack n play only.
We put him down in his crib for his two long sleeps around 7 and again around 1, but when he wakes up around 5 or 6am I nurse him in bed and let him sleep on me or right next to me. (John hates this)
I understand that having Rohan sleep in between us can be potentially dangerous and can lead to him not wanting to sleep on his own in the future. I do. But I also understand that he is a sweet smelling, cute coo making, snuggly sweet little bunny and I just want him as close to me as possible at all times! Plus he’s so young still, having him with us now won’t mean he’ll be trying to sleep with us when he’s 5!
…..will it?! *gulp*
John’s going to kill me, but since I’ve been in Florida I’ve been one co-sleeping mo fo! And Roey is sleeping longer stretches now…I got 7 hours the last two nights and 5 hours consistently the nights before. At home I get one 5 hour stretch, then 4 hours after.
I forget where I heard it, but someone told me that the “your baby will die if you cosleep” statistics are skewed and stem from parents that were high/drunk etc…. Is that true? Have you ever heard that? I sleep so lightly now that Sharkie’s here. I wake up for any squeak, there’s no way I’d roll over on the boy. I don’t sleep wildly anyway.
Do you co-sleep with your babies/children? When did you stop? Did your spouse/partner approve? If not, how did you convince him? *looks down guiltily*
