    I did follow guidelines and you didn't have to ask because I stated it in my post that I stopped due to supply issues!!!! What part of that don't you understand????

    I'm reminded why I took a long, long break from the hub. All the offence and outrage! These posts bring out the worst side of the hub. People getting offended and taking things personally when really, you shouldn't. Who cares what someone on a forum thinks of your parenting decisions?? They are not your friends, not your family. They are a stranger who has a different set of beliefs or different family set up.

    If you're taking things personally, it might be time for a wee break. I've been there. I possibly would have been offended too once (couldn't BF and kids slept in their own rooms from when they were about 3mo) but really, who give a rats @rse what someone says on here about decisions you made for your family that were right for you! My kids are healthy and happy. If yours are, and you are happy with how you are parenting, don't let someone else's comment or their opinion matter to you.
    I generally agree, but knowing what it's like to feel utterly hopeless and useless because of someone's unthinking, judgmental and ignorant opinions on here due to being mentally unwell compels me to call out such nonsense. I have a really thick skin, yet when I had PND reading shizz like what has been posted here would crush me. So when I see it I'm going to call it out, so the next person who is suffering and comes along to read such tripe doesn't think that it's an acceptable thing to say when it's not. It's not acceptable to say that people are being cruel and negligent because their baby sleeps in another room. It is acceptable to say that SIDS guidelines recommend xyz. It's acceptable to say once I met my baby I couldn't bear having it away from me at night. It is inflammatory, emotive rubbish to say it is cruel and neglectful.

    Default To sleep with the baby in the same room or not

    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

    Breastfeeding for 6 weeks would not be strictly following the guidelines. According to the website they recommend 6 months.

    Not sure if you saw my response on your other thread but I found the bednest invaluable and a lifesaver. Worth googling it or other 'co-sleepers.'

    How can you not understand what she's getting at? How is that different to room sharing in general?
