Or is DH - re co-sleeping?

(203 Posts)

DD doesn't spend a whole night in her cot any more (she used to). Between 1am and 3am she wakes up for comfort (not food or anything else) and I bring her into bed with DH & I.

DH is very against this and says I need to start making her sleep the whole night in her cot, rocking her back to sleep in the dark and so on, apparently we're making a rod for our backs, especially as he wants her to go into her own room soon.

DH does no nights with DD and hasn't since she was 6 weeks old (he could - we mix feed DD).

DD is 5 months old.

Me, I reckon as it's me dealing with nights I should just carry on what is easiest for DD & I, & I'm not fussed if DD goes into her own room next month or in five months although I think I'd prefer her to stay close to me longer.

Who is being U, please?!

Hi Nightmare, how's things? You've been in my thoughts. I hope you are getting the space you need to think about things.

I've read this and feel for you. Good for calling the police. Nobody should have violence used against them. Another avenue to use could be your health visitor? They wouldn't tolerate violence and threats towards a baby and towards the mother.
