I just had my little guy feb. 1st. The only way I can get him too sleep thru the night is laying in bed with me. If I lay him in his crib, he automatically wakes up and starts squirming. Should I continue to let him lay with me? Its just that, him laying with me allows me to sleep peacefully at night.

  • Oh yes, he is soo little yet. He is comfortable with your scent and warmth, heartbeat and all. Let him be near you. You could feed him, then put him in a swing to kind of get him to stay asleep, or in a bouncy seat, too. I slept with both my kids, and now they go to bed in their own beds :)

  • Co-Sleeping is wonderful for kids! I can't imagine putting my baby in another bed. It creates anxiety and stress on their part... Plus children who sleep with their parents have a stronger bond with them life long!
