lil lux is sleeping in her bassinet/swing in our room. we live with my in laws, and there isn't any other room for her to be in. but hopefully we will be buying our own house soon enough. but i am unsure of if i will leave her alone in her own room. i have grown quite attached to being so close to her. and being able to tend to her ever need at this young age. so i may end up sleeping with her in her room for a few weeks.
the main issue would be my DH getting enough sleep for work. he is lucky to get 5-6 hours right now. but thankfully he takes the train to work, so no need for sleepy driving. so i don't think he will mind an empty bed for a few weeks.
he works early, has to wake up at 5:15am, so he has to go to bed around 9:30pm for a good nights rest. even if i feed her and get her to sleep outside of the room, at best she only sleeps for 4-6 hours at night, which is wonderful for her age, but doesn't give him a lot to work with, and by that time of night i can't take her out of the room if she is fussy. my in laws swear its ok, but my bro in law likes to make a stink if she wakes up the whole house. i kinda agree with him, considering there are other people who had to wake up early for work the next day.
i want her to be independent but also know momma or dada is always within an ear's distance to her cries.
