My wonderful husband has started sleeping part time with our 8 month old baby boy since he was a frequent waker and we can't let him cry it out or he loses his voice. His mommy just can't sleep with him as she is a light sleeper. (wish this wasn't the case! :))
So, I have a question for you co-sleepers, when he wakes too early and decides he wants to play with dad instead or even both of us, if he ends up in our bed, how do you get your baby to stop and go back to sleep? We tried the other morning when he woke at 4:30 AM and we tried to keep laying him down and finally he fell asleep for like 10 minutes and was ready to get up and play again, so we just got him up at 6 AM at that point.
Any advice? Thank you!
