does anyone have any experience with weaning a 6 mos old from co-sleeping to crib so that he can sleep in crib SOME of the time? My dh is getting sad about the loss of intimacy in our bed, and I thought, well, if DS can sleep in his crib some of the time, that would be a help. Is this possible even?
I don't think anything has to be all or nothing, try it and see what works for your family.

You just put my heart at ease. Thank you. I will remember your words when I'm doubting our sleeping arrangements... "go with the flow of your babe". That is the truth about babies, and life as well. Roll with it and enjoy. Our dd sleeps in bed with us now and we both love it. I love to look at her little sleeping face as I go to sleep and my dh and I wake up happy every morning as dd starts her daily songs. I admit, I would like a little more sleep... and hope eventually that she moves out to the co-sleeper and then to her crib.. but we'll work with whatever seems to do the trick. that'll be my mantra "go with the flow".
My husband and I enjoy our time alone after she is alseep and we also enjoy waking up with her. Although, we do wish it was later than 6:30 am!!
Good luck with whatever works for you!
