I am not entirely sure where to post this, so I'm just going to put it in a couple of places and hope someone knowledgeable can help me. (I'm sure someone will-I read posts on here all the time and get all kinds of useful info.)
Anyway, my 8 week old DD does not like to sleep in her crib. She might sleep for an hour (occasionally three hours) in it, but for the most part, her favorite place to sleep is in my arms or my hubby's arms. Who can blame her, really? It's warm and safe and comfy, and with me, she's right near her food source. When she was first born, I brought her into bed with us a couple of times just to try to sleep b/c I was exhausted. My husband was completely against it. First b/c he didn't want her getting spoiled, and two, b/c our bed really isn't set up for safe co-sleeping at this point.
Well, we were talking yesterday about different things, and I pointed out that we are basically co-sleeping with her at this point. Except its not in a big safe bed where we can all sleep comfortably and together. It's either me or him, in the recliner in the living room, uncomfortably and away from each other. So he's agreed that we can try to do it with a co-sleeper attached to the bed. This is the option we feel is best for us.
But he's still worried about the effects of co-sleeping. Will she be spoiled? Will she have difficulty going to sleep for someone else b/c she's used to sleeping with us? She just started daycare this week, and he doesn't want her to not take naps at daycare b/c she can't fall asleep b/c we aren't there with her.
He really just wants to hear from people who co-sleep with their babies, their experiences and advice, and what kinds of problems you've encountered. I would really appreciate it.
