This has been really hard on our relationship. My husband wants to start getting our 9 monht old to sleep in her crib, i would like to keep co-sleeping since my need of sleep is higher than my need of her being in her crib. I like to co-sleep though i know its my fault she won't sleep in her crib because we snuggle all night and she still nurses once at night. NOW...do I give up co-sleeping because my husband wants me to? He said if i want to continue co-sleeping then i can sleep in the guest room with her, i thought that was a mean thing to say since she is a good sleeper and sleeps all night. He thinks its good for het to start sleepin on her own and i think it's good for her to be right next to me!! I don't know what to do! :(Answer Question

I think if you want to continue you should sleep in the guest room...He's probably just giving you the option because he thinks you'll just put the baby in the crib. Call his bluff...and if its not a bluff than he can believe he's sleeping better. It will only be for a few months anyway. I've slept on the couch plenty of times because of his snoring...we're still happily married.

If co-sleeping puts a strain on your marriage then there is a problem.... Your baby will just have to get adjusted to sleeping in her crib and let me tell you the sooner the better. She will cry in the beginning but she will get used to it.... If not now when did you plan on stopping Co-Sleeping?

I'm anon 54....just want to add that I stop co-sleeping at 3 months when my DD was sleeping most of the night. I'd get up most night around 3 to feed her and by the time she was 5 months she slept completely though. I have no problems putting her to bed, she's 20 months, although every kid is different.
