They aren't just a trendy accessory to sit in the foreground while you keep going on with your life.

    And I'm not talking about those that are distressed by months and months of sleep dep. I'm talking about the parents who are planning their sleep training once the baby comes home and treat their kids like a puppy.

    I know that's probably going to get backlash.... but yeah it's what I see a lot lately.
    Del I don't think you're going to get backlash as such here - as you've posted in what is essentially a 'protected' thread.

    If you posted your comments in a general sleep thread for general discussion I am sure hubbers may then offer input on how your views may be inaccurately tainted by your own experiences and how some may find your comments offensive.
    Yes it would be a bold move however you could always ask people to be respectful when they post. Cheers.

    Default Sleeping Like A Baby

    Quote Originally Posted by besha View Post
    I just read this thread from start to finish. I'm so glad there are people on here who feel the same about sleep as I do! My DD started off as a champion night time sleeper without me doing anything, but the last couple of weeks have been awful with the 4mo sleep regression hitting us hard! Going from 1-2 wake ups per night to four or five or sometimes more has been brutal! But I'm trying to just be consistent and hoping like hell its just a phase that will pass soon

    I'm not keen on sleep training but I do want to look more into cosleeping because I've noticed that when I bring DD into bed with me some mornings after particularly tough nights, she sleeps so much better. Her dodgy sleep seemed to coincide with us moving her into her cot in the nursery as she outgrew her bassinet and was starting to roll. So I'm not really sure if her waking now is the sleep regression or she notices that we aren't in the room with her or a combo of both or something else. I noticed lots of you ladies seem to cosleep, how do you do it? I'm not keen on her sleeping for the whole night in our bed as DH is a very heavy sleeper and I'm worried he would roll on her so I'm thinking about a cosleeper cot but the ones I've found online seem to only be bassinet sized? Are there any that are a bit bigger? Would love to hear how others do it.
    @GemJane my DD recently started being a bit the same with my family. It's been kind of good though because previously they would all descend on her like seagulls on a hot chip but now they hang back a bit and say hello one at a time while I hold her. So rather than everyone getting in her face and trying take her off me straight away they say hello one at a time, wait for her to be ready to smile at them, and then have a cuddle. She's much happier when she sees them now!
    Sorry, I only just noticed your co-sleeping question. We used a bednest, a cosleeping bassinet/cot (bigger than a normal bassinet) until DS was 4-5 months. After that he was starting to get too big for it and we had just moved and were able to put our guest bed (a queen) in his room so I just slept in there. He would start out the night in his cot and then would usually join me after his first or second feed in the night, so sometime in the middle of the night. I did this until he was about 15 months and then weaned him off of cosleeping as he moved around too much and kept me up. I was never comfortable with the idea of DH being in bed with DS, he sleeps like the dead!

    Thanks @HollyGolightly81. We don't have a spare bed unfortunately or room for a spare bed, so that's not an option for us. Though it does seem like a perfect solution! Maybe I'll just tell DH we need to move to a bigger house with more bedrooms 😂

    It was definitely a lifesaver being able to use our extra bed, our previous place had been too small so not sure how I would have coped without it. Do you have space to sidecar the cot to your bed? There are usually YouTube videos on how to do it with a normal cot (if you have one where the side is able to come off).
