Every Tom, Dick and Harry tells you it’s best that you don’t ‘prolong co-sleeping’ and that every baby should sleep in a separate crib from day one. You nod and agree enthusiastically. Feeling like a baby expert yourself, you know it’s the ‘right thing to do to do’.You make a mental note to put this to practice going forward.
It’s 3AM and your baby is crying and wailing frantically. You get out of bed, hold him/her for a bit, nurse and cuddle for a bit. Just as he/she is about to doze off, you put him/her back in his/her crib. You slowly remove your arm from under his/her head and carefully tip toe away from that ticking time bomb like some professional acrobat on a thin wire that’s a 100 meters off the ground. Just when you’re about to step into your warm cozy bed, you hear your little one tossing and turning and the bawling starts. After about two or three attempts, you give up and take your baby to bed with you so you can get some sleep. So much for independent sleeping huh?
Tired of being a walking zombie because of all those trips back and forth to the crib? Babybay to the rescue!
