So here is the backstory. I've coslept with my dd since she was born. Its been fabulous until recently. I've been noticing that she actually sleeps more peacefully when I'm not in the bed. Some nights, especially when her teeth are bothering she sleeps better snuggled close. But others I feel she needs her space.

We have a crib we are about to sidecar and give that a try first. She'll still be pretty close but if it that doesn't seem to work I will try the crib at the other end of the room (we have a super small bedroom and it'll literally be right next to the bed still).

What I worry about her in her own crib is this:

She doesnt cry when she wakes, needs a change or feeding. Shell starr to squirm when shes wet and she grabs my face when shes woken herself and I just know when she needs to feed

ShShe's getting better at self soothing but somenights she just cant get herself back to sleep without my help. I am worried I wont hear her subtle cues and once shes awake she just starts playing with her feet and its super hard to get her back to sleep them.

Any advice? ?!!

Just a super quick question first: how old is she?
