(Because inquiring minds want to know)
No, she doesn't. In fact, she never has. Anna, like all of our babies, has had her own bed, in her own room, from the first night after she was born, and has spent every single night in it.
True, it is not a crib. Rather, she sleeps in a her own, queen-size bed (how appropriate for a little girl like her). Some time before the new baby comes, we will move her to a toddler bed in her sisters' room, to free up the "big bed" for the new baby.
Miriam as a newborn
No, she does not sleep in our bed. But that is not to say we don't sleep in her bed.
Yes, we, too have our own bed, in our own room. It comes in handy when we need some privacy. I never would consider, not suggest, being intimate in the same room as a child, no matter how young or fast asleep they are, or if they are clear across the room and out of sight in another crib/bed. Even then, it would be too big of a mental barrier for me to overcome.
But considering the fact that the vast majority of time in bed is spent sleeping soundly, we see nothing wrong at all in joining Anna (or any of our babies) in their bed once we actually go to sleep for the night.
So next time that nosy person looks at you in disgust and asks, "Does that baby still sleep in your bed??!?", you can smile and tell them, "No, of course not!"
Case closed. Next!
