Alright cafemoms here's my story. My dd is almost 5 months old. At night she sleeps in our room. She started out in a bassinet and is now in a pack-n-play next to my bed. The battle I am facing is keeping her in "her bed" and not mine. I feel alot of my issue is when night time rolls around I become lazy and don't make the effort to put her back in her bed... now I think my laziness has created a problem because my dd, when I put her back in her bed after breastfeeding, starts to kick her feet, roll around, talk to herself, etc. until I take her out. I have laid awake in bed for over an hour listening to this before, thinking oh she'll go to sleep... she doesn't go back to sleep. AND get this once I can't take it anymore because I want to sleep I'll bring her back into my bed with me and she is out in like 2 seconds! How do I make it so she is atleast sleeping in her pack and play 90 percent of the night (10 percent for breastfeeding) again? I'm pretty sure I know what I need to do but I would like to hear other mom's advice becasue I'm hoping it will encourage me to make the change! = )
I would keep her in bed with me, because that is the safest place for her physically, emotionally, and mentally. : ) This time is just so short and they need so much at this time. I regret not giving more to my oldest. I do not regret giving my all with my youngest.
