So my six month old had a very rough start in life. For the first 5 months of his life he cried non stop had multiple surgeries and hospitalizations thus he slept in our room. I am pretty sure he is ready to go to his own room now but I am struggling with the change. A couple years ago I was in an incredibly abusive relationship that ended in a 13 month restraining order that he continued to break. The restraining order has expired now but I am just terrified if I put him in the room with two windows (all of our other rooms only have one) that someone might try to hurt him or take him or something. Has anyone else been in this kind of situation and if so how do you get past that fear, I don't want my child to be smothered because of my own horrific experiencesAnswer Question

They have really cheap window alarms that are magnetic. They attach to either side of window and when separated they scream like crazy, we have them and they are great. It makes me feel better when i put them to bed. try these and keep a baby monitor on to help. Even a video monitor would work. i would suggest those things. I am so sorry that happened to you! Ultimately it comes down to what makes you feel safe and secure.
