Co-Sleeper Fail!

What a beautiful furniture you have become!

Lowe is many things, apparently, he’s also a bedside co-sleeper hater. We bought this Giant Carrier Bedside Co-sleeper since I want to start sleep-training him to sleep alone, but from Day 1 of using it, I was the one having no sleep at all since I have to put half of my body inside the crib for him to breastfeed and sleep at the same time.

The idea of having a bedside co-sleeper was ideal. It’s perfect! My husband and I will sleep on our bed like we used to while the baby sleeps on his own crib that is attached on the side of the bed. However, with my personal experience, I might be doing something wrong since he refuses to stay alone in the crib or he just don’t like to be in a crib and he prefers the bed. Even my husband couldn’t sleep since Lowe keeps on waking up in the middle of the night to cry and I have to sleep with my upper body on the co-sleeper and my lower half on the bed… the zipper in between the co-sleeper and the bed is poking me along the way too.

I still look at you with longing, you know?

I am still in awe of the beauty of the crib, but I know I have to let it go. It became a permanent fixture in the vacant bedroom that was converted to William’s temporary walk in closet. 😂 So, I sold it in the marketplace in Facebook.

A lot of parents and experts say that sleeping with the baby on the same bed is dangerous and is the #1 cause of SIDS because the parent can roll over the baby, can suffocate with the blankets, etc. Thankfully, I don’t roll in my sleep, Lowe is too big now to roll on anyway and the last part about blankets, I’ve seen that Lowe now knows the purpose of the blanket, it’s either he kicks it off himself if he’s too hot or he starts to chew on it.

So, the idea of a CoSleeper is good, I was sold at first but then I sold it myself. 😂
