Wow this tread has kinda gotten a bit out of hand.On the other hand thou thanks everyone for your very helpful opinions they have given me a great insight to what I have to look forward too 😊😊
OP I hope the way this thread has gone has not scared you off bubhub, this poor bloke asked a simple question, what is the general norm for where a new born should sleep?
A. SIDS guidelines recommend baby shares the parents room for the first 6-12 months.
In some cases it's not so easy, due to space, sleep habits of both parents and babies etc.
Personally both my girls have started off sleeping in a bassinet in our bedroom, but due to all of us being noisy and light sleepers, and lacking sleep, often they got wheeled into their own rooms during the night and at roughly 6 weeks old both moved into their own rooms (right next to our room) permanently, we felt it was the best option for all of us and had a noise and movement monitor as an extra precaution.
What I would like to say is where possible follow the guidelines, but don't beat yourself up if you find they don't work for you. Every parent and every baby is different and as parents we do our best to do it right but sometimes we still get it wrong
ETA. OP if you are really unsure maybe get a bassinet that is easily moved that way if you start with room sharing and it's not for your family it's not a big deal to move it
