Question by christa w:
Newborn: Where does baby sleep when you bring him home??

Im due January 4th and confused about where to have the newborn sleep. I have a baby safety class in 2 weeks, but am getting the babies room ready now so would like to know what I need ready.

I have a crib and a pack n play that has a basinette. I assembled the basinette and the hooded part kept coming un-velcroed. It’s dissapointing.

But anyways, where should the newborn sleep & for how long? When is it safe for baby to sleep in crib?

Answer by Sufi
i kept them next to me in bed as long as they were nursing or needed it. it was easier not to have to get up in the night many times to nurse them. newborns do not sleep through the night. they wake up a lot.
that’s why i kept them nearby, so i could go back to sleep while nursing them.
