Our little girl is almost 8 months old and she is still sleeping with us in our king size Tempupedic bed. It started for MANY reasons. We both love her in the bed, but she needs her own space now (and so do we). After 8 months of night after night going to bed with us...she knows the routine. There have been a few nights where she was so tired I nursed her and put her down in her crib in her room. I was a nervous wreck and couldn't sleep, but she slept for 4 to 5 hours. When she finally woke up, I nursed her and then put her down. But after that she would try to go back to sleep and she couldn't and then I was so tired after two hrs of trying, I gave up and brought her back into bed with us. She goes down great for naps during the day in her crib. I was wondering about buying a co sleeper....maybe that would be a good start to moving her into her own space but right by my side at night and keep her crib in her room for naps until she is done breastfeeding, teething and all of the millions of diaper changes during the night (like 5 to 6 a night). Any advice? Please help any other mothers dealing/dealt with this? Anyone tried the co sleeper...is it worth it? Does it help? Thank you Moms'
