The AAP recommends that parents roomshare with their babies for the first year, and at least the first 6 months, and that’s a great goal. I also think that we have to recognize that sleep deprivation is serious; it can threaten both mental and physical health and even be deadly if it causes a car accident, for example. Some parents may really struggle to get enough sleep with the baby in the room, as noted by Katherine Stone of Postpartum Progress in response to the new AAP recommendations. It’s important to be informed about the protective association of roomsharing, but if you’re struggling with this recommendation, it’s worth weighing the options with your pediatrician.

Room share—keep baby's sleep area in the same room where you sleep for the first 6 months or, ideally, for the first year. Place your baby's crib, bassinet, portable crib, or play yard in your bedroom, close to your bed. The AAP recommends room sharing because it can decrease the risk of SIDS by as much as 50% and is much safer than bed sharing. In addition, room sharing will make it easier for you to feed, comfort, and watch your baby.

Thank you very much for the article! I experienced exactly the same with the initial room sharing, to the point that I was the only person in the house who could never sleep – baby and hubby happily snoring/grunting etc through the night. So I moved the baby to his room very early, to the indignation of my MIL. Recently my MIL came to visit for one month and we put her in the baby’ room as per her wishes. Soon after that baby started waking up at 4am every day! He also started teething. So I don’t know whether I should move my MIL into a different room or on the contrary keep her with baby so she could comfort him at night as he seems quite in pain sometimes. Can this room sharing create any sleep problems for the baby? Thank you for all your insight.

Annie # We bed share, but we did not plan on it. In fact, we were against it initially. When we first brought our daughter home from the hospital, our plan was that I would sleep in her room so that my husband can get sleep to be most alert for work. I slept next to her bassinet but I got no sleep! She would fall asleep in my arms but would wake up royally peeved that she was in her bassinet. It would take me forever to get her back to sleep but by that time, I’d be wide awake. The few times I did get sleep, it was when I’d fall asleep nursing my little one in the laid back position, but is freak out because 1) she was asleep on her tummy! And 2) isn’t bed sharing a no-no? In my hormonal sleep deprived state, I broke down a few times in some ugly cries and a couple of weeks later, I moved back into the bedroom with the baby because on top of it all, I missed my hubby and it was the one thing I could fix. We finally brought our daughter to the bed when the only way she’d fall asleep was in hubbys arms in bed while he watched television at 2 am in attempt to quiet her down and get tired himself. A few times, he’d fall asleep accidentally but woke up feeling refreshed with a happily sleeping baby in his arms. Eventually, I found that I slept better because I’d wake to feed her by feeling her kicks to my stomach instead of waiting until she worked her way up to screaming cries. And hubby slept better knowing that wife and baby were next to him, happy and sleeping.

thank you for another helpful blog post! we have no choice but to share a room with baby since we have a small 1 bedroom apt. Our son from the day we brought him home from the hospital just would not sleep well due to waking up from gas. He ended up sleeping with us since it was easier to nurse him back to sleep, especially bc of my husband’s work schedule. Now he is 20 months and gas issues have subsided drastically, but still sleeping with us. His bedtime troubles are due to associating nursing to sleep and then the alarm noises. I am only trying to set a small goal which is to have him sleep without nursing then we hope to buy a toddler bed. Unfortunately I know as long as we are in our 1 bedroom apt that he will never have sound sleep even if he learns to fall asleep on his own. We have noise from the alarms, and my husband’s schedule changes so sometimes he comes home late or has to go to work at 2AM. I find it interesting that some chose to make noise available when newborns were sleeping, I wish we thought of that! Our routine has always been lights off, no noise to sleep so that is what my son is used to. When we are out and it is bedtime he will only go to sleep in a quiet, dark room!

We have done room-sharing since the day my 8 1/2 month old daughter was born, though not always by choice. When we first brought Gabriel home from the hospital, we lived in a 1 bedroom apartment, because we hadn’t been planning on getting pregnant when we did (though our daughter is SUCH a blessing and if we could go back and do it all again, we definitely would!) So Gabriel slept in a pack-n-play next to the bed for easy nighttime breastfeedings, and because my husband and I both were terrified to not have her in there with us. Breastfeeding ended up not working (though not because of the sleeping conditions) so we eventually switched to a bottle, so that removed the need of having her in the room. We decided when our lease was up to move to a 2 bedroom apartment, but our plans fell through and we had to move into a tiny room (even smaller than our old bedroom) at my sister’s apartment. The apartment we’d planned on still wasn’t ready a month later, so we’ve been spending the past nearly 5 months at my MIL’s house, in a bedroom there. Thankfully the room (and the bed!) is much larger, because we’re in a house. However, I’m starting to think that Gabriel has a hard time sleeping at night because my husband rolls around almost constantly at night, and the bed is so creaky. I can’t let her sleep in the living room by herself at night (though I’ve considered it), because if she DOES wake up, and cry, she’ll wake up my husband’s 97 year old great grandmother that also lives in the house. So we are very limited on our options here, but Gabriel has started not sleeping well in the past week, and I’m not sure what to do. At first, we thought it was because she was sick (VERY runny nose). Three night of no sleeping had us deciding to take her to the doctor, and she has no bacterial infection ANYWHERE. The doctor said she looks perfectly healthy, but if she -is- a little sick, it’s just a virus and there’s not much we can give her. We gave her benadryl to help with the nose runny (and stuffy) ness. That helped with her being able to breathe, and she slept better for one night. Then she started going to bed better at night, but now she wakes up anywhere from 2-6 am when she used to sleep CONSISTENTLY til 7 am. My husband works two jobs and can’t afford the loss of sleep. I think to start with, room-sharing worked really well, but after a certain age and a certain point in baby’s development, the baby needs their own room. Gabriel is cutting teeth, but she never even STARTED to get fussy on the last two teeth. I don’t know if that could be causing it, but we use Hurri-caine and it usually numbs it, and even that’s not helping her sleep. We used to give her a warm lavender bubble bath before bed every night because it would soothe her, but we’ve realized now that now that she can play more easily, it really just riles her up and makes it harder for her to sleep. Any ideas or suggestions on what to do with her would be GREATLY appreciated! God bless.
