Where does your baby sleep?

I know this has been discussed before, but I don't think there's been one in a while. I'm curious now that they're all a bit older!

Re: Where does your baby sleep?

  • We are trying to transition to her crib but since we are now in the inlaw suite at my inlaws :) she will still be in our room

    Goodness, I don't think I would get any sleep that way! It used to be worse, but now it's only 2 or 3 times a night that my mind wakes me up to make sure she's still breathing.

  • We transitioned from PNP in our room to crib in her nursery around 3 months. She is a noisy, but solid sleeper, so I was the one waking up a lot more than she was.

  • Some nights her crib, other the bassinet in my room. By 4o'clock in my bed.

  • She was in the crib in the early days but from around three months on we've bedshared. I don't think I'll put her in her own room for a while. Mostly because we just moved in with my grandparents and there's no spare rooms here.

  • Her own room in the crib since day 3 home. She would not sleep in our room at all, which was our plan. I joked with my ILs that they must have done something to the crib to make her sleep (FIL built the crib, MIL stained it).

    Haha well since he was there in the early days, he was up every 2 hours anyway. No need to check in! Now if I want to peek in on him I just turn the video monitor on. There is no way I could sleep with him in our room, I would be a zombie.
    Well that makes sense! And yes, there are days when I wish I would've gotten a video monitor instead of just an audio one.

  • We transitioned to his crib in his bedroom at about 4 1/2 months.  He learned to roll from back to tummy so we quit the swaddle and decided to make the transition to his crib at the same time.  It's worked great because he was becoming too light of a sleeper to share a room with us. He still wakes often during the night, often just needing the paci put back in, but his room is just across the hall so it isn't too far to go.

  • In our room, in our bed.

  • In our room in the pack and play til 3ish in my bed after. Add me to the zombie list. I can't imagine getting up and walking to his room the 6-8 times a night we wake up.

  • RNP in our room. I keep thinking about transitioning him to the crib in the nursery but I am having a hard time actually getting myself to try.

    Finally in the crib! We transitioned him this past month. He is in the magic merlin suit, but I think that's better than being swaddled in the RNP.

    Eta- crib is in his own room

  • In our room and she'll be here until she STTN.

    We have a two bedroom apartment and her sleeping habits plus squeaky floors (when I have to get her) would wake up our son if she was in the room with him.

    ETA: her crib is in our room and she sleeps in there.

    This is our situation too- once he's in a crib he'll be sharing a room with his brother and I don't want to do that until he's sleeping longer and is no longer up for the day at the crack of dawn, since we just broke the toddler of that habit. He starts the night in his own bed but when he wakes around 3am he comes into our bed.

    He sleeps in his room until around 4 and then he's in bed with me. This week since DH is away he is in bed all night with me.

  • We had DS in a bassinet in our room for the first 3 weeks.  But between DH snoring and all of DS's feedings and little noises I was not getting any sleep.  We moved him to the crib in his room and we all slept better.

  • She sleeps in the pnp in our room because our master is downstairs with the nursery up. With the amount of times she wakes up I'd never get sleep. We might go to her in the crib and me in the guest bed this weekend. We'll see.

  • He sleeps in the kitchen. We are staying in my parents guest house right now so DS1 is in the bedroom, I'm in the living room and G is in the kitchen.

  • Crib in nursery since night 4...but during this fun "rolling and screaming" regression he is in our bed from about 2/3 am on because he WILL NOT sleep after.

  • Pack N Play next to our bed. Baby room is upstairs corner of the house and the master is downstairs on the opposite side. Literally as far away as possible. So, we're in no rush. Eventually, we'll probably move into the guest room across the hall when we move him upstairs, but I'm very content for now to have him next to me.

  • She has been sleeping in her crib since she turned 3 months old.

  • We side turned our crib into a sisecar crib and DD sleeps in that next to us for most of the night. Sometimes she ends up in our bed but, she is an awful sleeper so it's the only way I end up with more than 3 hours at a time.

  • He was a bouncy seat sleeper until he learned to roll over, and then we had a super easy crib transition. He sleeps and naps in his crib, we got lucky with sleep so far! Well, naps are hit and miss.. But yeah, his own room, in his crib. He digs it.

  • In my bed. We have let all three of our babies co sleep until they sttn. I love having her close to me.

  • We moved her to her own crib/room at 4 months; previously she had been in a Rock 'n' Play in our room.

    Bassinet in our room until about 6 weeks, then crib in his room.  He was such a noisy sleeper that I was waking up and he wasn't! Even if he hadn't been so noisy, I would have transitioned him at about that time anyway since I had to go back to work at 8 weeks, and I didn't want to be waking him up with all my noise in the AM.

    Ugh, spelling is hard...

  • Crib for naps during the day. We'll move her there at night when she's STTN, which doesn't look like anytime soon. She was sleeping in our bed until the past few weeks. We put her back in the co sleeper just because she's been sleeping so much better on her tummy.

  • DD still usually wakes to nurse once a night and it is so much easier having her in our room near the bed so I don't plan to move her to her own room until she really "sleeps through the night" on a more regular basis, I need all the sleep I can get!
