Tips for Room Sharing With Your Baby
As a new mom, I quickly realized all of the things infants require and it's a lot for a minimalist like myself. So when it came time to prepare our master bedroom for our babe's arrival, it was important I only bring in the necessities and keep our room from feeling like it was being overrun with baby stuff. Now, with Rowan 4 months old, I've discovered the essentials to keep bedside and how to organize everything in a way that doesn't clutter our room.
Owlet Smart Sock 2
SIDDs is a common fear amongst parents with infants, and when Rowan was first born, I had anxiety over it. We were still in the hospital when I realized the value in the Owlet Smart Sock 2, so I ordered it for peace of mind. I keep the base plugged in on my husband's nightstand.
Rowan sleeps next to our bed in the Halo Bassinest and I like having her within arm's reach. We have the premier series with added features that, quite frankly, we don't use. Although the stainless steel base is nicer than the plastic base on the essential series.
We put the DockATot inside the Halo Bassinest and it keeps Rowan feeling snug—so much so that she's been sleeping through the night since about 6-weeks old. (YAY for sleep!)
Glider & Ottoman
We moved the glider and ottoman from her nursery into our bedroom since this is where we'd be spending our nights for the first 4-6 months. With its neutral linen fabric, it blends in nicely with our other furniture.
We plan on moving Rowan into her own room at 6 months. What are your thoughts on room sharing and how do you make sharing your room manageable? Share in a comment below!
