I would say that 80% of the time P sleeps in her own bed but there is 20% that she cozies on up to us.
When she was a newbie she slept in a bassinet in our room till she was 3 months old. Sometimes during late night feedings it was just easier to plop her in bed with me. She started sleeping through the night pretty early so it wasn't too common.
She sleeps really well in her crib for the most part but if she's sick she prefers to sleep with us. Its actually a pain to get her back in the swing of things after sleeping with us for a week while she gets better but for the most part she transitions back and fourth easily.
Lately she has been waking up at like 5-6 and I stick her in bed with us and she sleeps till 7-8 today she slept till 930!
She is an uber affectionate person by nature so it doesnt surprise me that she sleeps better snuggled up to us. she loves the comfort. Mikey and I however tend to sleep better with out squirmzilla mashed between us.
Although Id rather lay in bed uncomfortably for an extra 2 hours than be awoken at 5 am and have to entertain a fully energetic toddler.
As mentioned before she did NOT nap today even though I could tell she was exhausted. So bedtime should have been a breeze. She initially went down ok but about an hour later she woke up screaming and having a coughing attack. I moved her in with me and 2 almost 3 hours latter she FINALLY just fell asleep.
PS just risked it all for the sake of that picture.. the things I do for blogging!
I guess I have mixed feelings on the subject. Id obviously rather her sleep in her crib but I dont oppose her late nigh/early morning snuggles. Sometimes I rather enjoy it. Anyone have any input? Do you or don't you?
late night vote?
