Sleep Issues in a Shared Bedroom

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: Would love to hear from anyone who has had a baby in a one-bedroom about how you dealt with getting him or her to sleep through the night. Our 9-month-old still wakes up once a night, usually around 2 or 3 am, I think in part because she senses that we're in the room. I've stopped nursing her in the night and my husband takes her out and puts her in the Pack 'n Play in the living room, where she fusses and puts herself back to sleep. But I can't figure out how to break her of waking up altogether. Letting her cry it out in her crib, a few feet from our bed, doesn't seem like a realistic strategy. Anyone out there figure out how to manage this situation? Would love your advice, thanks!
