Pearl has slept in the co-sleeper next to my side of the bed since she was around one month old. I love having her right there. My favorite is when she wakes up every morning sometime between 5-6am. I can just pull her into my bed and she immediately wraps her arms around me and goes back to sleep. Baby cuddles are the absolute best and I have really enjoyed these months with her.
I am pretty sad to be moving her to the crib tonight, but I know it's time. I have woken up a few times to her climbing into our bed. Since she is able to pull herself up into a standing position, I know the co-sleeper is too shallow for her to sleep in.
We figured that since the co-sleeper worked so well, we would just keep her there until it didn't work anymore. So, that is what we did. Now she is going through a separation anxiety stage and I have a strong feeling that the crib transition won't go over well. I really hope I'm wrong! I will share how it goes next week.
Maybe I should take a nap today just in case.
