  • It's fun to get the baby's room all ready, but most newborns stay in mom and dads room for the first few months anyway...so there's really no rush if your little brother needs the space.

  • I would make it sooner than later. Having a baby stay in the room with the moms and dads isnt healthy

  • yeah probably because my little brother like to sleep with us anyways so i don't think it will effect him in anyway to make the room now and let him sleep with us for a while.

  • if your used to it then it wouldnt be a problem I suppose. I was told its bad because the mom and dad may wake up to every little peep from the baby.

  • just have to say... there is nothing unhealthy about letting your baby sleep in your room for the first few months ... I didn't like having her sleeping in the same bed as us, but my daughter slept in a bassinet in our room for the first 4 months...

  • my son only slept with us for 2 nights. But my DS is odd in that he has a super hard time falling asleep anywhere other than his crib or pack n play. So id get the room done now, you wont have to later!
