Does anyone, or did anyone, here have your baby's nursery on a different floor of your house from your bedroom? If so, did baby sleep in your room at first? For how long?
Benjamin is currently sleeping in the pack n play in our room. He's 4 weeks old. I am considering trying to transition him to his crib but I'm freaking out about it because I am nervous about having him on a separate floor. He isn't sleeping through the night yet, so if he woke I would have to go up there, but that would be the case no matter when he transitions up.
I am also concerned that if I put him up there, I would run up at every little sound. Whereas now, I know his still asleep grunts (he is a SUPER noisy sleeper) and the sounds he makes when he is about to wake. But if I have to check on him I can just pop up, turn on the light and get back in bed. That said I am considering sleeping in the guest room at first when we first put him upstairs, so I would still kind of be right there. I just feel like if we put him in his room, we'll all get a better night sleep, even with waking up if necessary.
Not sure what to do. Anyone been in this situation and have any words of wisdom?
