Hi sejal if ur baby is sleeping comfortably on other bed without crying n all then it's ok. But try to make her sleep with you during day time nap. This will build a sense of confidence n love in her. She will not feel separated due to any cause.

Hi... my daughter who is 4 now used to sleep with us only. till last month. but due to space constraint as she is growing ... we are unable to fit on one bed and we decided to put her bed separately... she is sleeping but here I saw someone suggested we should do this round 6-7 years. Hope I have not done any mistake by putting her early in a separate bed. .. Parents Please guide..

Hello Shikha, l also strongly support co-sleeping with babies. Children feel protected and loved by their parents... as even the small babies can suffer from separation anxiety and a sense of depression if they found their parents don't share bed with them. And as parents we also be able to keep an eye on them.. whether they are experiencing any temperature fluctuation or feeling discomfort and need a burping.. etc. Some people will say let them be independent from the very beginning. But according to my opinion, every decision must have a suitable time to be followed. And only sleeping separately will not make them independent. Let them enjoy the bonding with parents at fullest. Let them feel protected and loved by parents. When the proper time and situation will come they will happily accept their separate sleeping arrangements.

https://www.thebump.com/a/myths-and-truths-about-co-sleeping Just now I go through this blog... both my daughters sleep with me only and I also don't feel there is anything wrong if your child sleep with you... I think they feel more protected if either parent sleep with them... me and my husband decided to arrange separate room for our elder one when she will turn 5 ...

1. Do her back massage and legs massage Sharmila Pradeep twice a day. 2. Try to make her stand holding her hands or table or bed side. 3. Do cycling exercise of her legs after massage n during day time as well.

hi Sharmila Pradeep ! some babies do not crawl at all.. and straightaway begin to walk .that's perfectly fine. teething also begins anytime between three months to 1 year and even later. so that too doesnt worry me. as far as sitting is concerned, for how long does she sit independently?

Hi Shikha Batra I didn't not think Co sleeping is bad. We should make kid comfortable until he wants. Once grownup they have to sleep separately. So why to rush. Kids feel comfortable in between parents and get peaceful sleep so better to make them sleep wd u in any way they want. Once they are 6-7yrs when they can understand what is sleeping separately then we should initiate separate sleeping.

Hi mam.. I believe we should Co sleep with our children.. I have read it somewhere that if we don't sleep with our loved ones the person can go in depression.. So I believe we are the most important people for our kids whom they want to Co sleep with.. They would awake refreshed and full of zeal
