Questions for the co-sleepers out there
This might sound like a silly question, but how exactly do you cosleep? I have looked online and saw that there are plenty of fancy looking things that attach to the bed, or that you can place in the bed. To me, it just looks a bit over the top, especially considering we have a pack n play right there anyways. Do most of you simply just have the baby in bed with you and either the LO sleep between you and your SO or with something along the side of the bed to prevent rolling, and also pay attention to where the blanket is? I ask this because that is mostly what I have been doing with DS when he falls asleep with me. He doesn't always sleep with me, but being that he is still isn't rolling and only sleeping for 2-3 hour stretches at a time, it seems so much easier for me to just let him sleep where he falls asleep after nursing rather that risk waking him back up to put him in his crib.
Now my husband is sleeping in the spare room downstairs due to him having to work the next morning, so I figured he may as well get some sleep since I have to be up anyways. However when I mentioned something to him about DS sleeping with me, he was not happy. I never did it with DD because I was afraid of the risks everyone associated with it. This time around though it seems like there are more people who support it. How can I let him know it really isn't that bad? has anyone else had to deal with a difference of opinion with their SO?
And lastly, when you wanted to start having your LO sleep in their own crib/bed, how was the transition?
Thanks ladies, your input is much appreciated!
