cosleeping mom likes cribI really like having a crib. We use it for naps (which ds doesn't seem to mind). I also sometimes use it at the beginning of the night (when ds goes to sleep before mommy!). Once he wakes up (usually in an hour or two) he comes into bed with us. I know this is probably an unpopular opinion, but I am actually hopeful that one day he will spend a bigger portion of the night in the crib. But since he tends to wake up ever hour or two all night long, I just don't see that happening in the immediate future.
One other note, in the early months (ds is now 7 1/2 months) we used a cosleeper that attaches to our bed (3 sides). When ds was younger he started out in that at the beginning of the night and some naps (when he wasn't napping in my arms that is). I really liked it.
