Quoting Mama❍:" I wanted to keep my LO in our bed for as long as possible but the older he gets I just find it to be ... [snip!] ... We're still in the nap phase... he will nap 20 minutes in his crib as opposed to 2 hours in his swing... so small steps... "
We have a king and it's two foot off the ground because of the frame we have. I don't let the baby sleep by herself, I'll lay with her until she wakes up, as I did with both of my older two. If I don't sit in there, I wake her up. I'm just not opposed to letting a baby CIO that long because a parent wants "peace" It's not right! Working on it slowly is one thing but to honestly MAKE an INFANT CIO without checking on them is neglect in my opinion. And I know what you mean, our middle would nap shorter in her bed than in our bed. She's 4 now and sleeps all night in her bed. Sometimes we wind up with three in the bed with us (5, 4 and 6 months)
