I think I have one of those babies who may need to co-sleep :eek:
I have no idea on how to safely co-sleep & it scares me a little.
Jonah has been sleeping no more than 3-hour stretches in his crib and the past few nights when we lay him in his crib asleep, he wakes up after a few minutes fired up! I'm the only one who can soothe him too. Last night, after trying to get him to sleep for 3-hours, I put him in bed with me. He was out in an instant! DH tried to move him after an hour and Jonah let him have it until he put him back with me.
Well.....the kid slept 7-hours straight last night :eek:AND I had to wake him up to eat and he was so relaxed that I didn't have to use the nipple shield because he didn't clamp down on me. He also didn't scream bloody murder when we were changing him. His sleep was very calm and relaxed, too.
DS never co-slept with us and was always fine in his crib. I'm the kind of mom where I think everyone should do what works for their family but I have no experience with co-sleeping. I worry that it's not safe for him. I think Jonah is just that kind of kid who loves being with mamma! I usually wear him during the day and he is in heaven!
Anyone have any experience with this? Thoughts?
