mas maganda kung itabi mo muna sa yo para alam mo kung gumagalaw siya o gutom siya...............kasi baka mapahimbing ang tulog mo nakalimutan mo may baby ka na pala  ;)

naisip ko din nung una yan sis, kase natatakot ako baka madaganan ko pag tulog ako.. pero so far, di naman, kase parang elevated yun higaan niya, kaya di ko na rin ibinili ng crib. lalo na if magpabreastfeed ka, mas okay syempre na tabi kayo. or kahit formula fed, i think mas maganda tabi kayo eh para mapadede mo siya agad. nanay ko bumili ng crib/playpen for her.. dun lang siya nilalagay pag kaylangan niya iwan mag-isa habang doing household chores, for instance. ingat na lang siguro and may nabibili ata na higaan niya na pangbed lang, online ko ata nakita yun.

normally, if breastfeeding, di na siguro. however, you will need to leave your baby from time to time, like going to the cr/kitchen --- and once the baby rolls over, prone na yan, na mahulog sa bed, kahit na palibutan mo ng unan yung bed. the safest "containment" unit, is a crib/playpen. buy a big one, that will serve as a play area na rin, para dual purpose. if it's just a bed/crib, and you would want to co-sleep, di na necessary yung crib-bed.

hi mommies! yes mas maganda na naman talaga kung itabi natin si baby kahit ako gusto ko gawin yan pra mas magiging closer ako sa baby ko. Siguro for newborn talaga hindi pa masyadong magagamit ang crib/playpen but as the baby grows older needed na talaga lalong lalo na pg gumagalaw na siya.

Meron kasi me ako freind 11 months na baby niya but she had a hard time putting her baby sa crib/playpen kasi hindi niya sinanay kung kelan lumaki na baby niya saka niya naisip na paminsan minsan kelangan c nsa crib kaya tuloy naisip ko mas maganda din siguro kung meron din times kahit maliit pa sila na sanayin din sa crib although not all the time. It will help moms do the household chores, eat and do something naman. siguro mga 2 to 4 months si baby puwede na.

yes! kasi ever since newborn si baby meron sya crib. Kahit iwan namin sa crib hinde sya iiyak. In fact, gusto niya maglaro sa crib niya (except minsan nagpapalambing, gusto pakarga hehe)
Never ko pinasleep si baby sa kama namin... except if naglalaro

@just_memom: For safety reasons din kelangan talaga ng crib si baby. Well it depends din siguro kung ano ang mas prefer ng mga mommies. Pero talagang mahirap kung hindi masanay si baby sa crib/playpen as she/he grows older, for me its a matter of training being comfortable playing around and discover new things by himself/herself.

Tama ang mga mommy for new born di masyado gamit ang crib pro need din paglaki laki na  kasi you can't leave them unattended pag malikot na sila sa bed, saka para may play area sila at di laging karga.. yung baby ko until now kahit lumalakad na sya we still leave him on his playpen kasi safe sya dun, at pumapayag pa rin sya kasi sanay naman sya magplay dun. Yung iba kasi baby di sanay sa playpen kaya umiiyak pag iniwan na sila.

Tinatabi ko din si baby ko nuon sa gabi, sa umaga sa crib siya kaya gamit na gamit naman niya yung crib niya nun. Safe din kasi sa crib lalo pag may kailangan kang gawin. Naging play area niya din crib niya. Kaya di naman nasayang pagkabili namin. :)

you know i have several friends from the states who keep on telling me about sids and yung babies nila namamatay nalang dahil iniwan nila sa crib. i dont know what triggers this basta ang ginawa ko nung nanganak ako tinabi ko lang sakin until now kahit nagroroll over siya, i just place her sa crib kapag im going to do something. natatakot talaga ako. you can never tell when your baby needs you esp. pag newborn. sobrang fragile.

Eversince si baby nasanay siya na co-sleep, mas comfortable kasi you can easily attend sa needs niya.
 
Kaya lang ngayon ayaw niya talaga palagay sa crib. Hirapan tuloy kami kasi gusto laging karga. Umiiyak pag ilalagay.

@mommy mixx: hindi naman ibig sabihin na dahil nilalagay sa crib si baby she/ he will be left un attended siya, of course not. xempre we should check every now and then especially during day time kung meron gagawin ang mommy/yaya its not just leaving them alone there for long number of minuites/hours, its should not be the case.

@mommy mlabable: Ako din plan ko rin to co-sleep my baby with me during the night but il definitely train her na ppwede siya ilagay sa crib/playpen kasi napakahirap naman na kahit malaki na siya ayaw palagay sa crib, aminin na natin we are just but human napapagod din tayong mga mommies. At least pgnsa crib/playpen baby natin we could just sit beside and have a little time to just watch them and take a short rest.!

@ mommy mixx - tama si mommy momma_33, we will not leave the baby unattended sa crib, bantay parin natin sya. It's just that secure kasi un crib, meron bumper para kapag malikot rin si baby d sya mabagok. Regarding SID naman, make sure walang pillow si baby kapag natutulog, walang heavy linens sa area where she sleeps, un kasi nagcacause ng SID. As much as possible as well hinde sya nakadapa matulog

@ mommy momma_33 & mommy mlabable - i dont co-sleep with my baby right now, i'm planning to if she gets bigger, i dont want to risk kasi na mahulog sya sa kama or madaganan sya eh

buy a crib yun 3 layers......................1st layer ginagamit pagkatapos paliguan si baby........2nd layer, for babies newborn to 5 months hanggang hindi pa siya nagroll over ok pa siya dito..................when time comes na nag roll over na, nag crawl na.................pwede mo ng tanggalin ang 1st and 2nd layer at sa 3rd layer mo ilagay............medyo malalim na ang 3rd layer kaya kahit tumatayo na pwede mo pa rin iwan..............

make sure you have the right pillows and beddings para walang aksidenteng mangyayari..............like matakpan ng unan si baby kasi gumalaw siya.........................make sure din na well-ventilated si baby lalo na ngayon na ang init baka ma-pneumonia kung mapabayaan sa crib at hindi mo napapansin basang basa ang likod niya....................

use the crib pagtulog si baby o pag may gagawin ka at kelangan mo iwan si baby ng sandali...............but not at night

may advantages at disadvantages...............well its just up to you............ :)
