🙂 I’m a little different than most people I guess. Roo was in his crib starting the first night home from the hospital. Granted there is a queen bed in the nursery and I did sleep in there with him the 1st month. I think we only used the baby monitor for 1-2 months once I was back in bed with hubby. I didn’t want to hear every noise he made at night – only wanted to hear when he needed me which was not a problem because his room is on the same floor as us and we left the doors open 🙂

We swaddled unitl he was 9 months old. It just worked for us. He loved it and slept great. We tried a couple times before then to not swaddle but it always ended with no one getting a very good night sleep. He often broke his arms out of the swaddle during the night – but just seemed to love it. (We stopped swaddling at naptime much earlier – mostly because I let him nap on his tummy – I know another bad mom move – but it worked for us!)

I only swaddled my son for a short while. Once he was moving, I stopped. He slept in a bassinet in my room for about 2 or 3 weeks. I had intended on him sleeping in his crib from day one but because he had some difficulties as a newborn, I wanted to make sure I knew what his patterns were before I put him in his own room.

I started putting my son in his crib at a month old. He slept through the night from the 1st night home but I couldn’t walk the stairs for almost 4 weeks due to how ill I was. He’d be fed before I went to bed at 11:30 and would wake up to be fed at 7am.

We swaddled our daughter way too long, I think. She was about 8 months when we completely stopped. She just liked the feeling of being contained. We also started putting her in her nursery by herself at 3 months. We had the Angel Care monitor that sounds an alarm if the baby stops breathing for ten seconds so that was a huge help in easing our minds.

ETA: I definitely do not think swaddling had a negative impact on her physical development. She took steps at 7 months, was walking at 9 months, and doctors are continuously in awe of how much she is capable of. She is leaps and bounds ahead of most babies her age.
