    Default Bed sharing help..

    Me and DD (3 this month) have always slept together.

    Tonight completely out of the blue she said she wanted to sleep in her own bed that's in her room. So I said okay (thinking it was a stall tactic) we went in, she got under the covers. I told her a story and she FELL ASLEEP!!??!! WTF!?

    Now what do I do? I'm freaking out!!! Do I stay up? Keep checking on her? I've left the hall way light on and both our doors open but I'm completely..lost...

    I'm scared and worried about her
    I just want her to wake up and come back to bed with me

    Help!

    That's fantastic she did it so easy! My son is 4 weeks old and my husband asked when he was going into his own room and out of his bassinet, so can totally understand how u feel lost! At least she is old enough to come back in your room or yell out to you.

    Enjoy your freedom ( if you can)

    yay for your DD!


    Maybe pop a night light on in the hallway...


    Now - go into your bed and become a starfish!! ...enjoy the space!

    (you might want to get one of her shirts with her smell on it and wrap it around a heatpack to take to bed with you - for the sake of comfort )

    Say thank you to the god of parenting as he or she has given you a great blessing. I missed my window to get my son out of my bed, and he won't go now, and I'm a month off delivering his sibling. We have tried even getting him on a mattress on the floor, and it was exhausting.

    It is sad though as it's nice to bed share, but look on the plus side that she has gone without being distressed.

    Awww!

    I second putting a night light on so that she can find you if she wakes up midway through the night. My DS is 3 and sometimes asks to sleep in his bed, but always finds his way back after a few hours.

    At least you can have some sleep which is free of this:

    LOL

    DH took it the other night (excuse the poor quality!).

    Thanks guys. I want to go get her! DH thinks I need to let her have her independence when she has asked for it

    Is it crazy that I'm worried about her smothering herself or being kidnaped :-/

    Aww I love the photo!....the old foot to head trick

    I totally understand the instinct to go get her. She definitely won't smother herself at that age. She'll be fine (well, not that I know as my son is 4 next month and has never slept alone...).

    It will be hard whenever she goes, but at least if you don't have to battle, you'll feel better. She may wake up and come in during the night anyway.
