I got a crib from my brother-in-law and his wife, which is like top of the top, most expensive blah blah blah... (they are quite well-off). I haven't put it together and I doubt that I will do it anytime soon. They came over to my place the other day and noticed I haven't built the crib and asked how come, I said: well, I plan to cosleep. Of course, I got the: wow, that is so weird, sleep with your baby... blah blah comments. It's okay, the only thing is that I feel bad she gave me the crib that I probably will never use, although it does turn into a toddler bed.
When did she start to become a mover, at what age?
And echo, when did your baby grow out of the co-sleeper? Many that have used it say that happens around the 5-6 month marker, although some say even sooner.
My family said the same thing. But I figured since I was a single Mum I needed to maximize sleep - and getting up to go to the crib didn't really help since I was the only one getting up during the night.
It's hard to remember when exactly Cae starting "moving" per se (it's been 8 years now) but she's always been an active kid and still to this day ends up on the other side of her bed when she wakes up in the morning. I remember when she was about 6 months old? she rolled right off the bed. Luckily my bed was on the floor and she was giggling away and thought it was hilarious.
