In a cradle in our room

Avery slept in a rocker in our room until she was 8 weeks old. By 8 weeks she'd been sleeping through the nigh for a while and we felt comfortable putting her in her own room. It was a bit nerve-wracking that first night but we got used to it pretty quick. She was so little that I don't think she even noticed the difference.

With our next I will probably do the same thing: Wait until the child has been sleeping through the night (at least 6 hours) before moving them to their own room. I will, however, get a different cradle next time. Our rocker was great because it was portable and cozy, but it made Avery's torticollis condition much worse. Even if our next kid doesn't have toritcollis I think a flat bottomed bassinet will be better.

    We had Mason in a cradle for his first few weeks as well. I kept falling asleep holding him during night feeds so we slowly migrated to co-sleeping instead!

      We used a bassinet beside our bed with our older two and co-slept with the others. Every family will do something different that works for them.
