View Full Version : Did anyone get upset!
I dont know if i'm being stupid or not, but last night was Hannah's first night in her big cot! I've asked heaps of people what age they should be when moving from the bassinet in our room to her own room and i got heaps of different answers. But shes 8 weeks now and she sleeping through the night, so we took the big step last night....goodness me i was soo upset i started crying :eek: , seeing my little bubba in that huge big cot ( shes still only 4 kgs), and not having her by my side. After my husband cuddled me it made me feel better.
But for her first night and day of the BIG COT, shes been great, straight to sleep, no whinging at all!

NO Certainly not stupid to get upset!!
I find I tear up at the silliest little thing regarding the kids! and sleeping in the cot is a biggy!! There is no right time for this to happen - it is when it suits you and your baby and really no one else's business ;) and remember too, that as Hannah goes through her ages and stages, what is right now may not be right then :).
So good you have a great little sleeper there - but [just to burst your bubble a little :(] don't be too distressed when she gets a bit more 'aware' and starts protesting about being away from you - Perfectly normal and acceptable!! Just enjoy the good sleeps now ... and class this as the first of many 'firsts' that will reduce you to tears :D .
Yes, I got very sad when I packed away my baby's bassinet, thinking "there goes my little tiny baby", and she's only just turned 7 months for goodness' sake!!
Lots of other little things bring a tear to the eye - packing away her teeny tiny baby clothes, especially the favourite ones that made her look SO adorable. Time goes so fast, sometimes I wish I could just keep her the way she is now, although I so look forward to the child she will become at the same time!!! So, you're not alone!!!
We moved Brianna into her cot once she started sleeping through (about 8 weeks). I was so upset that I cried every night when we went to bed. I still go and check on her a few times before I go to sleep!
I havent even packed away her bassinet yet... I cant bring myself to do it.
What youre feeling is very normal!
She's nearly 6 months now, and she's never objected to being in her own room in her cot. She loves her bed!
Good luck to you! :)
This makes me feel so guilty. Raleigh slept in her cot from pretty much day one (apart from about a week of co sleeping because that was the only way I could get some sleep). She first really slept soundly from about 6 weeks onwards but she still doesn't sleep through. She'll get up maybe once or twice a night depending on what time we put her down. I think its perfectly ok to be a little upset. Our little babies are growing up so fast.
I'll be putting my daughter into her cot next week,she'll be 5 months old then.
The only reason I'm doing it is because she's getting too big for her cradle which has been beside my bed from birth,and the fact that her cot won't fit into our room!
I have mixed feelings about doing this,as I love hearing her breath as I go to sleep and the cute noises she makes (it doesn't sound the same thru a baby monitor :p ),but I guess it has to happen sooner or later :)
thanks for your feedback.....i really needed to hear it all......it made me realise i'm not a big baby! hehe. I know what some of you mean by leaving your babies in your room longer...i would like to of kept Hannah in longer...except my husband is a really light sleeper and she keeps him awake with her noises and little cries...but its more cause drives big coaches and does long day shifts...that he cant be tired driving with all those people on the bus. But i mean her cot is about 5 metres away, her room is real close..... but with the doors slightly open you cant hear much, except when it's a loud cry..which is all we really want to hear :)
thanks again *big hugs*
