Here's a photo of my little bed hogger - small person, but big space!
I've previously tried to put her to sleep in her own baby cot, but failed miserably. The few nights I tried, she woke up around 3am then refused to sleep again, despite all the patting/singing/ water/ pacifier/milk attempts. Ended up with a frustrated baby and an exhausted mummy. :(I've been advised that if I want the baby to sleep in her own cot, I should do so before she's 6 months. Otherwise the baby will get too reliant on having mummy's scent and warmth when she sleeps. Guess I should try again soon, and to get ready for a panda-eyed me!
