  • I always kept newborns in our room in a bassinette for the first 4-8 weeks. After that, they were in the crib in another room. My oldest son woke up...once maybe when his brother cried and then went back to sleep. it is amazing how much they can sleep through.

  • we are having the baby sleep in our room in a basinett until a sleep patern emerges - then she will be in the room with her older (3yrs old) sister.

  • It really depends on what you're comfortable with. I kept my kids in my room till they were too big for the cradle or bassinet (about 8-10 weeks) Then they went into the "kids" room. The only one I didn't do that with is my oldest. He slept in the crib the night I brought him home. He's the one that woke up the most too! ;)

  • Keep the baby in your room in a bassinet tell he is able to sleep through the night so he doest disturb your other son!

  • Our 3rd baby is due in 10weeks. I will keep her in our bedroom until she sleep thru the night then she will move into a room with her sister. I think she will stay will us for at least 4 or 5 months.

  • i would keep the baby in the room with me as long as possible, its not fair for little kids to have to hear the crying and get woken up, but once the baby sleeps most of the night u can try to get the older boy to get used to the sound and try to teach him to sleep thru it
