In his own crib tonight.
Have a feeling that's gonbago over like a fart in church.

I hate it.

LO has always slept in a co-sleeper in our bed. SO CONVENIENT! (breastfeeding) But he's five month now so dh wants him to sleep in his own crib.

thefewtimes he's slept in a cribso far he hasnt gotten much sleep. He wakes up, eats and then it usually takes 1.5-2 h to get him to fall asleep again. (compared to2-5 MINUTES) in the cosleeper. Have a feeling dh is the only one who'll sleep good tonight. But who knows. Maybe I'm wrong. I was just hoping I could keep him in our bed til he's sleeping through the nigh for real (as in no night feedings)

LO belongs with us.
I hate this idea. It's stupid and annoying buti'm being open and I'm trying it out.

Bullshit


-----------------update-------------------
It went pretty much as I expected. LO woke up about once an hour wanting boob, nothing else. Dh slept fine the rest Of us...not so much.

Made a deal with him....i suggested sex every day if I can keep LO in our bed at night. Hahahaha MEN!
But it's a win win for me since dh is a hotty mctotty.

My dh is saying the same thing. Our dd will be five months on the 21st. I sleep so much better with her next to me though. She's just so cozy and warm.

Oh yes, that too. That and it is so extremely convenient to breast feed when lo's in the bed instead of having to get up, get lo
etc etc

Dh has said he wants to cosleep when we have our kids but I won't do it! Sorry, but it isn't happening. The marriage bed is for the couple, not for the kids to get inbetween or replace the hubbs. If that means a bit more work for me, then so be it. That is just my feelings on it and this is coming from a girl who coslept when she was a baby.

I couldn't not do it. I cried and fought til he let LO cosleep. A bed at night time is for sleeping. We can have "adult time" elsewhere on other times. I have not replaced my dh

I didnt want my DS to be a co sleeper because his dads family put such bad thoughts in my head.. He wa 4 days old and I was breast feeding him and my SIL called to see how I was doing.. I told her I never got any sleep because he wouldn't sleep in a bassinet or crib. She educated me on co sleeping so I started and boom - my DS went from sleeping for 20 minutes to 4 hours.. Loved it.. He will be 2 in a month and still snuggles up with me some nights :)

Its not about the "adult" time. Its about the connection that a couple gets in bed while they are sleeping next to each other. If you are a sahm, you spend all day with your kids. Bed time is you and dh time, even if it is just you sleeping. Being able to cuddle and hug while going to sleep are moments you can't really have with a baby in the bed.
