I would love all your advice and experience regarding co-sleeping pls!
My ds is almost 5mths old and sleep in his cot pushed up against our bed. He is rocked/held to sleep and then transferred and will sleep quite well without us in the room for day naps and also for the begining of his night sleep.
During the night he seems to get wrestless and its a struggle from about 1am - 5am at which point I normally let him him in our bed and we sleep for a good 3hrs or so together.
So I am wondering if I should let him cosleep with us once he wakes at around 1am?
Long term how did you find it? Was it hard to transition them back to their own sleeping area/room? How old were they when they went into their own room and was it a challenge?
I guess the concept of AP seems logical to me, give them as much as contact as they desire and in time they will find independence through comfort and confidence. But I don't want to just make bad habits that will make it hard for him to sleep?
I also have another bub due in November so will have DS 1yr and a NB. We can fit two cots in our rooms and was planning on having baby in our room with us until at least 12mths-18mths?
Any tips, suggestions, insights??
