Re: To disturb or not to disturb LO in the morning

My dd did this in the crib and still does it in her bed. Sometimes she'll do it at nap time instead of napping and I wonder if I should just let her come out, but you know what? We all need alone time to just "be", and if that means talking to your stuffed animals or "reading" books to yourself or your animals, then so be it. I not only think it is acceptable and good for you, but I actually think it's healthy for your son, too. I'm glad my dd is comfortable being alone. It's a good life skill, if you ask me.

Yes, Yes and Yes! I would love to have woken up to my baby playing quietly rather than them screaming to come get them (which is what my kids did ) I think it's great that your LO can entertain himself. FWIW my kids are 6 and 3 now and they will get up now and go into each others rooms to play and give us at least another 1/2 hour to sleep

Well it sounded to me like she was saying that I am keeping him locked up in his room for no reason, like some sort of punishment. I really didn't understand her reasoning, but it did make me question as to whether or not this would have a lasting negative impact on him. I truly don't believe so, maybe he'll have imaginary friends but that's not a terrible thing.

I'm definitely not going to stop leaving him, as soon as he starts calling out to me I go get him. In fact, most of the time I go get him before he calls because I am ready and need to get him ready.

Re: To disturb or not to disturb LO in the morning

Yep, I agree too. It's fine to leave him as he is happy! I wish DD would do this. She just stands at the side of her crib crying until she is "rescued".

Re: To disturb or not to disturb LO in the morning

I leave my kids in their rooms and/or beds until I get up in the morning and get everything started. They have a few choice toys in their room and they just all hang out playing, laughing etc.. as long as no one is screaming or getting hurt I dont mind leaving them in there for a little while

LEAVE HIM!

My LO also plays in her crib . . . she also does it to go to sleep. I think it is great that they are happy in there, we are blessed b/c so many others cry in there.

Re: To disturb or not to disturb LO in the morning

okay I'm totally in the leave him crowd!! your mother must forget what it's like to have a 15 month old running around when you're trying to take a shower.

My dd does this (20 months) however she frequently takes her diaper off and leaves poopie messes.. yeah I go get her!

Re: To disturb or not to disturb LO in the morning

LEAVE HIM!!! My DD was sleeping 7 hrs in her crib at night by 5 months, then waking earlier and earlier, and I would go get her and bring her back to bed with us. I seriously think I TRAINED her that she couldnt sleep alone, cause now, shes in our bed, and her crib is in pieces in our garage. I usually cant get out of bed in the morning, even to have a nice quiet cup of coffee , without her waking up.

I certainly don't think there's anything wrong with leaving him in there as long as he's happy and I would never judge someone for doing that. Personally, though, as soon as I hear my LO I feel like I should hurry and get in there and get him so I feel guilty if I don't.
