Aubrey slept in the crib for the first time today. I laid her down for a nap and she slept for over 2 hours. Going to see if we have luck again tonight. She has almost outgrown her bassinet and we are planning on going to the crib full time when she hits 4 months in just a few weeks.

Lol! Isn't it amazing how such a small body can manage to take up so much room? I tried co-sleeping with Aubrey, but she just wasn't having it.

RJ is a terrible sleeper I only like co sleeping for when I know he will want a 4 am feeding. He kicks the blanket off, roll from left to right, pull on his hair, lol farts like a grown man!! Just bad, this boy needs a king size bed not a crib.

She has now slept two nights in there without any problems. I still swaddle her so she looks even smaller in that huge bed, lol. I love that she always gives me a huge smile when I lay her down and as she falls asleep watching her mobile.

Awesome. Sometimes as much as we love to be so near & close I think some babies do appreciate their space. I know Ella does great in hers & streches her little arms up & out. I have to fall asleep with her sometimes to get my snuggle fix & then I can lay her down in hers;) I hope it works well & she gets a good nights rest there!

Glad she slept so well for you yesterday! How did last night go?
I'm still co-sleeping with Connor at night, and will until he is no longer nursing during the night, and he usually naps in his swing in the living room.
