DS is 5 1/2 months old. He's been sleeping happily in a combo of co-sleeper and our bed - when he has trouble sleeping we bring him in bed with us, but that doesn't work full-time because he is so incredibly thrashy. He started crawling last week, so we realized we needed to rethink our sleeping arrangements. And then yesterday he started pulling himself to standing! In his co-sleeper no less! We figured, OK, he'll just go in bed with us from now on, it would be safer. But last night was a nightmare. I didn't get a wink of sleep because he flailed so much. Mama doesn't function well with no sleep, so we can't do that every night...but neither of us are ready to put him in the crib, which is in another room. We like sleeping with the little guy, and he likes it too, but we all do need to sleep. So here are the options that I can see:
1. Convert the co-sleeper to a pack n' play, and put him in that to sleep. DH favors this one, but it seems unsafe to me somehow.
2. Get accustomed to not sleeping and put him in bed with us.
3. Put him in the crib.
Thoughts? I'm sure other mamas have been through similar stuff...help!
