my 14mth old has been sleeping with us since he was 9mths old. i wonder when should i get him to sleep on his own bed?
you can try.. it is always good to get him to sleep on his his own bed from young. ash has been co-sleeping with us since young and recently we shift him thought he floor (mattress) and he cant get used to it, every night will wake up and cry for one of us to acc him. so till now, my poor hubby has been sleeping with him on the floor -.-"""
Mine co-sleep with us till 1yo. When we shifted him to his room, he was still alright cos he sleeps with my maid.
Up till now, he will sleep in his room on most nights. Only certain nights he will want to come over and squeeze with us.
My son has been sleeping in his own room since birth.
We use a baby monitor to hear his cries.
i tried to let him sleep on his own but if he wakes up at night & can't find us he will cry nonstop. no choice we let him sleep with us although i would prefered him to sleep on his own since now he's bigger, when he sleeps, sometimes will kick us in the face or arms shoulders. my husband kena lots of kicks on his face .
mummies, what sort of bed do you buy for yr toddler? my son hates to sleep in his playpen, he always scream & cry when i put him inside. mayb he feels like a jail inside the playpen.
Why not you try first putting him on his own bed, and in the same room as you? I did tht first.....I let him sleep with me on my bed, and when he sleep I transfer him to his own cot, in my room. So at least, at night when he cry I can still hear him
As for what type of bed, I think it depends on you, like what apollo mummy did she bought just a mattress...for me, I bought a cot before he was born so I let him sleep in cot
i am breast feeding so it is more convenient to have him sleep beside me...
Errr...my eldest is 3 yrs old and have been sleeping in between hubby and me since 6 ths old! hahahahahha. Now my queen bed so cramp!
My daughter used to be ok sleeping in her own cot until around 6 months old then she started crying when she couldn't find us.
I also feel that our queen size bed is too cramp for 3 people, furthermore my daughter's sleep like the hand of a clock. She rotates -.-"
My daughter was able to sleep on her own when she was much younger. However, when she passed 1 year old, she now wants us to be in room with her to accompany her until she falls asleep (. I do not know how else to make her go to bed on her own. She now sleeps on a matteress on the floor next to our bed. She doesn't want to sleep in her playpen or cot anymore. Some more now she won't go to sleep until we both go to sleep so she sleeps late like 11pm. I can still transfer her to her own room after she falls asleep though but most time, I would already be sleeping too! hahaha so no chance to transfer unless she falls asleep before me. Wonders if this is gonna be a bad habit.
my son's playpen is in our room but if i carry him to his playpen after he sleeps on our bed, he tends to wake up within 15mins then start crying nonstop. no choice, ve to let him sleep with us or else we whole nite no need to sleep. sign...
My boy is 4mths+ now... since birth(after full month return hm), 1st few night, we let him sleep in baby cot... he dont like it, perharps dont like being "cage".... and i have to wake up and walk to his cot every night (few times a night) to check on him/ feed him milk
so we bought a toddler bed for him and its place between our queen size bed and wall (you get what i mean?) so he has no chance of falling off and yet i no need walk over, just turn my body and i can see him and pat him to sleep, while i sleep also....
I got this idea from some mummies in this forum... they breastfeed so they bought this toddler bed and baby no need to squeeze with them.... and train the baby when need milk, crawl over and latch.... haha...
My #1 who is sleeping with us so we kanna kicks alot of times on our back and face. He used to sleep in his cot till 1yo. Right now, his cot is being occupied by my #2 who is 3 month+.
Both kids will cry if they cant find us so we co sleep instead.
