Re: Do you use a monitor?
We use a monitor but keep it on dh side and I wear earplugs! I used to hear every snort, sigh and whimper and it drove me nuts! We also tried co-sleeping (for about 1 week) but our lo seemed way too sensitive to sound so now she is in her crib in her room, way down the hall with teh door shut and a white noise machine. She sleeps great and so do we. The thing that saves us from running in every time is a video monitor. We have the Q-See brand from Costco and we love it! It does sound too but is too staticky so we use a separate sound monitor. I was disappointed for a while, I had visions of my lo snuggled up beside me but it just didn't work and honestly, she seems much happier on her own. Trust your gut, it sounds like it is driving you nuts to tiptoe around so get her into her own room.
