We are a "bedsharing" family we started cosleeping & moved our son into our bed around 8-9 months of age. We never planned on bedsharing to be honest.. I read baby wise was not planning on ever having a baby in our bed. Baby wise is honestly in my opinion not for me or our family it's great if it works for you but after having my son and my arms I wanted nothing to do with anything I read in that book mommy instinct kicked in and I did not have the heart to let me baby cry it out our son was colicky and cried the majority of the time anyways... We brought him home from the hospital and I had him in a Snuggie Nest in our bed this worked for a little while but with his reflux and colic he needed to be elevated so we transitioned him to the swing where he slept much better he actually was in it so much we went through two baby swings!! After he was passed the colicky stage which takes about six months (so sorry for any of you moms that have a colicky baby you're in for a long road of sleepless nights and a restless baby) we eventually moved him into our bed which was much easier since I was breast-feeding him. Our son is a very high need loving child who thrives on physical contact so the thought of moving him out of our bed and bringing another baby into our bed breaks my heart. So I discovered this halo bassinet which is amazing I'm so excited to use it worth every penny wish I had it when I had our son. My plan is to have her in this until she outgrows the bassinet & then begin to start transitioning him into his big boy room. Which we are all OK with if it takes several months cause were in no rush to have him out of our bed I also like the idea of him being a part of everything and not feeling left out so what what better way to help him adjust and letting him stay in our bed and having our new baby in the cosleeper bassinet. I would be totally fine with having a complete family bed but I do need my sleep and the thought of two little ones and a 6"2 husband does not seem like it would work lol but never say never... So below is a photo of our bedroom and how I have it set up along with photos of the halo bassinet.
