Infant Care (up to 18 months old) Board Index


I know a lot of people who have let the baby sleep with them, and to be honest, the kids are still sleeping with them. I even did this myself with my daughter for a few weeks while she was teething but finally got to the point where it was becoming such a habit she wouldn't sleep in her crib at all - she wanted me. She would cry and cry until I picked her up and put her in my bed and then she would laugh, roll over and go right to sleep. That's when I knew! :) It took one weekend to get her back into the habit of her crib.

It's definitely difficult when you want to have them sleep next to you, but I just didn't want to be like a friend of mine who has a 9 year old, 5 year old and 3 year old all come into her bed at night still. Those who do it tell me not to do it because it's the hardest habit to break, so that's why she's back in her crib. ...plus, sometimes you need time to yourself.

Good luck in whatever you decide. :)
LOL - I sleep with my son and while I adore it and he adores it, I fear it is the worst mistake I have made. When he was a little baby he was perfect he went to sleep in his own bed and even settled himself to sleep and would sleep all night. Then we moved interstae and spent some time in an apartment while we were waiting for the house to be ready and he was teething and unsettled because of the move and I let him sleep in my bed. He was 5 months old at the time and he hasnt left since. And he wakes up several times a night still looking for breastmilk. While I do enjoy being close to him it is proving very difficult to get him back to his own bed so I would prolly encourage others not to do it lol. However I do have a friend who slept with her son from birth and moved him into his own bed at 6 months and he went in and never looked back so I guess it depends on the child.
