I find it Disturbing When...EDIT

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

New parents rush home with their baby after giving birth, esp a preemie, and rush to put the child alone in the crib...it just puzzles me to no end...my friend just had her grandchild born 6weeks early, and as soon as they got her home finally, they put her alone in the crib..  i just can't fathom putting a newborn alone in a crib as soon as i got home from the hospital- i wanted them on me or near me at all times.  


Edit: It's NOT about co-sleeping..it's about bringing your preemie home from the hospital after a life threatening birth, and rushing to park the child alone in a crib two doors down the hall  from yours....i don't  understand that mentality.

If you are disturbed every time someone does something you don't agree with, you must be disturbed all day long.

My son was not born early and he still was right next to me when we got home. I did not let anyone touch him but me. And I never put him in his crib after coming home from the hospital.

Really? Never heard anyone call that cosleeping... I've only heard sharing a bed referred to as cosleeping.

Eta... Well my mind is blown. I googled it. I've probably misjudged a ton of people for "cosleeping" bc I thought they were sharing beds with infants. Oh well I guess. Lesson learned for next time.
