    Default New Baby's Sleeping Arrangement

    What are your plans for where your new bundle of joy will sleep? In your bed, in your room, in their room in a crib, other? Also, for the BTDT moms, do you plan to do it the same as previous kiddos or wanting to do it differently?

    Same as the last three for me. There will be a pack n play in our bedroom that will be used during the day and part of the night. The rest of the night baby will likely end up in our bed. Now I just need to get my baby boy OUT of the bed, so there is room for the new one! My little guy is the most laid back little man... except when it comes to his sleeping preference. He is making it very well known that he likes sleeping in our bed! Oh well, time to get tough with him.

    Well, we have no empty bedrooms. DD is in one, DSD in the other and we have the master suite. Soooooo....new baby is bunking with us until he/she moves in with DD. I guess that's the plan. Our room is big enough, I'm just not a super 'rooming in' fan because of the issues it causes when they get older. Anyways, we have a bassinet in there for baby and if he/she is still in there when he/she outgrows it, we have room for a crib too.

    With DD she slept in a bassinet in our room until about 5 weeks. Then she went into her crib in her own room.

    I'll do pretty similar to my last one most likely. Sleeping in my room in "mini crib" (kind of hybrid crib/bassinet weird thing I inherited) for a week or so, then move to his crib in his own room. My DS was/is a very loud sleeper so he only lasted in our room a week before DH couldn't stand it. With a newborn, I tend to bring them into bed with us towards the 2nd half of the night but always start them off in their own bed to get used to that. DH doesn't sleep as well with a baby in bed though so after the first few months, I don't do it as much and only after a certain time, usually 5:45 after DH gets up. I used to crawl in bed with my parents up until they got divorced when I was 10 so I'm pretty strict on letting my older kids get in bed with us.

    Baby will be in a bassinet next to me. As she gets older there is a nursery in our room she will go in the crib. With Elora we had a mini pack n play with the bassinet insert next to me. Then she moved to her crib in our room where she still is. Tho since bed rest she's been in the living room with us in a crib. I wanted her in her own room much much earlier but dh wasn't thrilled with the idea. His mom doesn't agree with kids in their own rooms and he follows her advice. I hope to have this baby out of our room much much earlier!

    At night, until baby is sleeping mostly through the night, or I can't stand it any more, he will be in our room in the cradle. Then he will be moved into his own room, which is right by our bedroom. During the day, depending on what we are doing at the time, he will sleep in the pack and play in the main part of the house, or his crib.

    That is basically what we did for the other two. We moved DD out sooner than we did DS because she made all kind of noise while she slept! I don't mind them being in there longer if they can be quiet and let me get a little rest too! Sometimes my babies do end up in the bed with me , but this time around I may not do that. Sometimes one or both of my older two end up in the bed and I don't want them lying in the baby!

    I should add... all of our babies have been out of our bed by the time the next baby comes... so by 2! And then they aren't allowed back in!!! Okay, yes, there is the "occasional" time here and there (a rare bad dream or sickness) when they come in for a night, but that is definitely the exception, and not the rule. They have each other, so I think that really helps with the transition.

    We are in close quarters here, and this baby was a bit unexpected, so I haven't decided what to do yet. DH and I have a room, DD and DS1 share a room, and DS2 has a small bedroom. Baby will co-sleep with us for around 4 months, and then I have no idea. DS2's room is pretty small, I don't think I could fit another crib in there. I have considered moving DS2 in to the big kids room - they have bunk beds. My DD and DS1 always slept together in the same twin bed when they were younger, so I am wondering if DS2 would be OK sharing the bottom bunk with DS1 while DD is up top.

    We just have to make it until the new baby is 1 year old and then we will be moving to a different place.....I can't decide what to do yet!

    This baby will stay in our room until it is old enough to bunk with DD. We have a very large master so it has half the room for crib and dresser and junk lol

    Change little guy to little gal and this is me exactly! Of my 3 kids, Malia is the only one who it's been hard to get out of my bed though and she's doing much better! She was in her own bed from 8:30 to 6:45 last night!!!!
