    I was not planning on this tonight...what would you do

    Advertisements
    This *could* be a moot point as she could wake up any moment, but Sydney is sleeping in her crib at 11:00pm and appears to be sound asleep

    She was a little fussy this evening, but I'm trying to get a "bedtime" routine down a little better since I start back to work day after tomorrow. I was trying to get her dressed, changed, read to and all nice and sleepy/cozy and all that jazz in her room before I laid her down for bed in her pack n play in our room to sleep. I laid her in her crib for a few while I was doing some stuff in her nursery (assuming she'd start skwaking) and she actually fell asleep on her own (well, with her binkie in her mouth ). And has been asleep for almost 45 minutes now...this is her usual bedtime, so I'm wondering if she'll stay asleep.

    I'm torn if I should move her to the pack n play to sleep in my room or see how this plays out and let her stay in her crib (she'll be 8 weeks on Thursday)...what would you do?

    Let sleeping dogs, lie.
    As the saying goes. Haha.

    That's what I'd do!

    my useless opinion on this matter is to let her sleep. move her if she wakes up, but maybe she's just making the transition really easy on you!

    is there a reason you don't feel comfortable with her in the crib?

    I know! That's the way I'm leaning...but I wasn't expecting to transition like this so suddenly and with DH gone at AT to keep me from going in there 52,000x's tonight!

    I'm overly terrified of SIDS and wasn't planning on moving her down the hall (with a baby monitor) for another month or two

    I don't blame you on SIDS, twins didn't leave my sight for 11 months. If you don't think you can take it, i bet you and DH could pick up the pack and play without waking her

    Was NOT expecting the glowing eyes that were just looking at me through her crib railings on her monitor. Apparently the dog is worried about her being up there alone too

    DH is gone at a training for AT till at least Saturday, maybe Sunday. Another reason I'm not sure is I don't want to do it on my own!

    I would make a pallet beside the crib and sleep in the room with her.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    You can always sleep next to her in the same room if it makes you feel better
