Hi there! I am a new mom and have been co-sleeping with my 3-month-old baby at night. However, I'm not sure how to handle naps during the day. I know it's important for babies to nap during the day, but I don't want to disturb our nighttime routine of co-sleeping. Should I continue to co-sleep during naps, or should I try to get my baby to nap in a separate crib or bassinet? Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Hello! I co-slept with my baby during the night but found that co-sleeping during naps was not ideal for us. I realized it was because my baby couldn't differentiate between day and night when he was always sleeping in my bed. So he would sleep less at night and more during the day. Eventually, I decided to transition him to his own crib for naps during the day. It took some time getting used to it, but he eventually adapted and was able to sleep longer during the night. My advice would be to try co-sleeping during naps, but if it's not working out, then try transitioning your baby to a separate crib or bassinet. You can also try to establish a routine that signals to your baby that it's time to nap during the day, such as having a specific nap time and putting on soothing music or white noise to help them fall asleep.
