For those of you that co sleep, how did you get your child into their own bed?

Mums who co-sleep, how did you get Bub out of your bed??? Little miss is 11 months old, and I’ve struggled to get her into her cot, I know this is my fault, and I can be a way to soft when she cries and let her in my bed. But it’s affecting both of our sleep having her sleep with me. She will sleep fine during the day in her cot, but at night does not want a bar of it. Any advice on how to make night times easier? How to keep her in there all night??

Pull the side off and put it next to your bed. Eventually you move it further away a little at a time and eventually their own room.

I know a lot of people are against it but I had to seriously do the cry it out method with my son . He would scream and I would go into his room every time and assure him I am still here until he made himself tired . That was the only thing that worked for us

sometimes it’s just the feeling of closeness… I gave my son one of my shirts that smelled like me and it helped… he still has the issue sometimes, so I have to let him cry it out… but as soon as he’s out… he is out :joy:

He’s 3yr.
Your guess is as good as mine :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

So we coslept. I started having my son do one nap a day in his crib when he was 8 months. I then transitioned him to both naps in his crib once he did good with the 1. And at 10 months I just transitioned him to his crib in his room overnight and he has done great ever since. Everyone gets better rest. However, if he wakes up at 4 or after I do just bring him in my bed with me until we get up for the day later.

Lol my 2.5 year old is still in my bed

Lol my son just turned a month and he will only sleep with me
Since birth he’s slept on my chest, he will sometimes sleep in his bassinet or his swing (his swing only when hes having a bad night) I think he had nightmares sometimes but I dont mind it one bit. I heard the warnings but hey hes my baby boy, my rainbow baby and it puts my mind at ease when hes on my chest

I’ve got 2 out of 3 in my bed tonight. Usually it’s all … My oldest is 7 and has finally figured out that he doesnt get kicked in the head or stomach in his own bed… I said … Exactly how I sleep with y’all piled up on top of me in my queen size bed.

side note on the rare occassion I get them to pass out on the couch or pallet and I get my bed to myself. I cant fuckin sleep for shit. So I have to go steal a kid and put them in my bed. :flushed::flushed::flushed:

They start to take it over :slight_smile::slight_smile:

I put her crib in my room and started moving her into her crib once she fell asleep. Then when she would realize she wasn’t in my bed I would comfort her standing by her crib and walk away into my own bed. I wouldn’t give in to her and she would fall back asleep. I also transitioned her when she was around 6 months so it was easier I guess than her being older

My 21 month old is still in bed with me. I actually don’t mind it though so I’m waiting until he leaves on his own. Side car the crib would be a good start to slowly transition. Or get a small floor bed for her room, childproof the area, fall asleep with her and then ninja roll away.
