Co-Sleeping

I'm not a fan of co-sleeping.  I want my babies to sleep in their crib; I think that's the safest place for them.

So what to do with a 7 week old who still insists on sleeping ON us all night?  The only way to get any sleep is to put up with this but it's becoming taxing and as she grows it will definitely not be safe.

How do we get her off our chests and in her safe crib???

One idea I had is to turn our master bedroom into a nursery, get it nice and warm at night and start testing her in there.  In case you are new here, we have a two bedroom condo, older kids are in one room, we have the 2nd room and Violette's crib is in the dining room - which is too cold and drafty at night for her to sleep in.  Eventually when she's sleeping all night we will put her in the kids room but for now, we don't want to wake them at night.  We can't sleep in a warm room so the only solution I can think of is for us to put our king size mattress on it's side against a wall and move her crib in there for a month or two.

Charlotte slept through the night at 8 weeks old.  Violette turns 8 weeks old this coming Tuesday.  Guess you know what we are doing for Memorial day!

Good luck! I'm sorry I can't give you any good ideas on how to solve this problem. We have yet to deal with this so I would love to hear how it goes for you. :)
