It probably goes without saying that the most careful, sensitive bedding purchase we make is for the all important baby crib. While babies can fall asleep in the oddest places, in the most adorable positions, no nursery is complete without a quality crib, equipped with the latest safety features!
Both of my children were very... resistant... to sleeping in their cribs for the first few months.
My daughter, through some bizarre baby radar, would not sleep in her crib unless Mom was in the room. She could be sound asleep for 30 minutes, but the moment Mom tried to creep out, she'd wake with a vengeance. (How do they do that?) As Mom had very little interest in sleeping on her nursery floor, she stayed in a bassinet by my bed, where she would sleep soundly all night, so long as my hand was inside the bassinet.
My son flat out refused to sleep anywhere but laying on my chest, for a bit more than three months. That was a loooong, but snuggly three months. He got over it, though. Now that he's ten, he has Mom on hug rations. Seriously. I get one per day.
"Mom, you already got a hug this morning."
Eventually, they accepted their Baby Crib, that Dad and I had spent so much time picking out. If you are anything like me, for these most important purchases especially, I do a great deal of research prior to making my purchase!
