So, I have discovered the secret to getting a baby to sleep past 6am…… are you ready?……
Let them sleep in your bed!!!
Three times in the last week I’ve brought Pebble into our room after an early morning feed. At 5.00am if I put her back in her cot she will just decide it’s morning and want to get up and play. So I tried bringing her back to bed with me and hey presto she slept in until 8.00am! Yesterday it was until 8.15am and only because I woke her up!
It was very cute seeing her wake up next to us, her little smile and legs kicking with delight when she saw us. BUT. Am I making a rod for my own back here? Am I going to end up regretting this little morning cuddle? I wouldn’t mind if she wants to come into our bed in the early hours, but I don’t want it to become an all night thing, or for her to refuse to sleep in her cot.
What is your experience with letting littlies sleep in the parents bed? Pros, cons?
What’s happening at your house this week?
