Where will baby sleep?

Even though we have a nursery all set up (and ready to reveal, soon!) for our little man, we decided that we want him to sleep in our room for the first few months. We figure it will make those nighttime feedings much more do-able, plus I am sure we’ll just want to know he is okay throughout the night.

So in my crazy nesting mode, I carved out a little space for his cradle and a rocker to soothe him back to sleep. I wanted to keep the space minimalistic, since it is only temporary, but also wanted to add a little bit of magic to it since it’s where he’ll sleep during his first sleeps out in the world. I added a beautiful handmade tapestry from Etsy that has some gold flecks in it, gold stars from West Elm & a quirky piece of artwork that Matt and I picked up traveling upstate to make the space feel like his own.

Where did your little one sleep? I’d love to hear all of your experiences!

  • Ours slept in our room until he was 8-9mths. He's 14mths now. Coincidentally, we also have a baby "H"- Hudson. His middle name is Fox, and his going home outfit was exact same one pictured in the crib! I had/have a lot of the fox themed adorableness you've been posting. It makes me so happy to see it again like this, with all the anticipation! Good luck!
