1 month old babies: where did they sleep

We TRIED to use the cosleeper in our room (we had one by Arms Reach, which is supposed to be both helpful and successful), but my daughter pretty much slept in our (my husband and my) arms for the entire first month. She never took to being put down very well. We didn't have a swing until probably closer to two months, and I feel like that was a big mistake. If you don't have a swing for the first month, you are cheating yourself out of valuable rest.

    So funny how different babies are. We had a swing and never used it. The swing and stroller were huge wastes of money for us.

      We used a bassinet in our room with the older two and then co-slept with the rest. I had a borrowed swing for our oldest but she didn't like it and I ended up giving it back.
