For the most part Bailey has either slept in a bassinet or a slanted rocker in our room by our bedside. Personally I didn't want to get in the habit of having her sleep in the bed because my sister and my mom who is raising my nephew has struggled transitioning them into their own beds and they are 3 and 4. However, there were a couple of nights that I was exhausted she would end up sleeping on a pillow on our bed when we first came home.


we have practiced co-sleeping with all of our babies by more diligently and consistently since baby number 3. I wouldn't do it any other way because I slept way better, my babies slept way better and it made breastfeeding a breeze if I didn't have to get up in the middle of the night
