I find if my baby (3 months) is right next to me she goes looking for milk, but in bassinet next to me, she goes back to sleep on her own, no problem with that if she is happy. She wakes once a night for a feed.

my second was like your bub, he slept well in bed with daddy and i until 11 months when he decided to sleep all night in his cot
my third is shocking, he wakes every hour wheb hes in bed with me and has to be fed back to sleep. If hes in his cot its every 20 mins... This has been going on nearly 16 months... We're off to sleep school and im petrified of cc. I dont agree with it. Unfortunately im at my wits end, i can not continue like this and look after mu boys to the bext of my ability
i dont actually think i answered anything then! As you can probably tel im a little nervous about sleep school...

I dont believe in CC for myself and my children. I just cant do it and it doesnt feel right for me - it goes against my instincts so I just dont do it.
And to say I've had bad sleepers is an understatement. But I dont believe all babies should sleep through by 6-12 months like most of the books say etc. My oldest slept through at 3 years old and now at almost 5 very very rarely wakes up. DS2 started sleeping through about a month or so ago, at 2.5 years old. He wakes occasionally still, but for the most part is sleeping 6:30pm-6am.
I lived by the mantra "this too shall pass". The sleep deprivation was god awful and I certainly struggled at times. But I wouldnt change a thing and I intend on doing the exact same with DS3 when he is born because its what feels right for us

I had a baby to be a mother, not to make him/her fit into MY lifestyle .....
Pretty straight forward attack on a mother who does CC is it not?
Yet this has nothing to do why I chose CC for my first two and may I add I co slept also. 8 months , 4 months and 11 months with my three.
I still classify myself as a mother whose world revolves fully around my 3 Kids and has for 7.5 years.

I did CC for my DD at about 8 weeks. I would feed to sleep, put in her cot and then leave her to cry for 4 minutes (unless she was hysterical and I was uncomfortable with it I'd go in early). I'd then sit next the the cot, arm through the rails and pat and shhhhh until she fell asleep. Again, if I was feeling uncomfortable with the amount if crying, I'd pick her up and cuddle until she was calm, usually only took a minute or two. I'd then put back in the cot and leave for another 4 minutes and start again. I only did this during the day as she self settled at night almost straight away (not sure why, she just did).
She is now 20 weeks and a brilliant sleeper. She wakes up happy each time and no longer cries in her cot. She may squark or coo or what not, but doesn't cry. This worked for us. It suits her personality and it is what DH and I are comfortable with, so we're happy with it.
I don't feel that I've neglected my DD, in fact I believe it was the best for my family.

The OP asked for opinions from both sides of the fence. I am sorry if you find anything in my post offensive, however it was not directed at you, as like I said, I don't even know you. If you are comfortable with your parenting choices then that's all that matters to your family at the end of the day - isn't it? I know it doesn't affect mine.
