Infant Care (up to 18 months old) Board Index

When my son was born we had him in a crib in our room for the first week. Then the second and third week he was in a children's hospital with a heart problem. When we brought him home from that hospital, I didn't want to let him out of my sight. So he slept with us until my husband almost squashed him. We had him in a little sleep positioner up between our heads thinking that was good. Well, hubby rolled all 250 pounds of himself toward the middle, popping DS out of the postioner. I woke up to DS wedged between hubby and the bed, both sleeping soundly. After I got done FREAKING OUT, DS went in his crib and we all had a typical new baby sleepless night.

The next day we went to Target and spent $160 bucks on a video monitor. Best money I have ever spent. That way we could see him in his room safe in his crib and we didn't go get him at every peep. We just watched and waited to see if he'd settle himself back down. If not, we'd go feed him. A lot of time he would put himself back to sleep after thrashing around quite a bit. If we hadn't been able to see him on the monitor, we'd have been going and getting him all night long! Using this method, he eventually slept through the night at 10 weeks old. He just turned four months and he sleeps from 8:30 pm to 7 am no problem.

I don't want to scare you or start a debate, but a huge percentage of crib deaths are from smothering from co-sleeping. I sounds like you have it under control tho, if you have been doing it this long. Just be careful and good luck.
