    Now why do the parents put the baby in another room? It should be in their room.

    Beats me, too. Especially as they are moving a teenager because of that. Does a baby really need her own room more??

    It’s difficult to figure out these kids’ ages. If Gordo is 10 years old, how old is his sister? She seems a little young to be shaving her legs.

    I had to share my room with my sister after she was born. I was 8 at the time. I was told if she’d been a boy I’d still have had to share my room as my two brothers had the other room, but that would’ve been temporary as he grew. I still wonder how long I’d have had to share my room with my little brother. As it was I had to share with my sister til my brothers left home and she got their room.

    I think that the older looking kid is the oldest brother; Gordo is dressed up like a pirate for Halloween, thus his big brother is giving him grief for the long wig.

    Why does a Baby need it’s own bedroom anyway?

    So if they give the baby Gordo’s room, is he moving in & sharing a room with Guy?

    Guy couldn’t hear you yesterday and I don’t think he can hear you today, either.

    Whoever says they “slept like a baby lastnight” means the crapped thier pants twice, cried for 4 hours and had a snack at 2 am.
    Baby gets his/her own room so parents can get some sleep.
    The first baby, you sit up all night just watching her breath (and thinking, “What have we done!?”) The second one is in her own room from day 7.

    Babies cycle is 2 awake and 2 asleep. All day and all night. Why the parents should have the kid in their room. Just like at the hospital why do the separate the mothers from their children? It defies logic and opens up the mixing up of children. Insanity.

    Why would someone want to get up and go to another room every 2-3 hours, instead of turning to other side and feed baby or just pat comfortingly while still half asleep herself? (One of my kids calmed down in an instant at me just saying “mom is here”.) Both my babies slept in cot next to me, with the cot side next to bed taken off, until they moved to full-size beds. At older age, they would crawl themselves into my bed for their night snack, and back afterwards – now that’s comfort for mom. ;)

    Or are you saying that any normal parents can get some sleep while baby is crying in another room for 4 hours, as you suggest? (I’d say the babies you have experienced doing that would have cried far less if someone was comforting them.)

    I have read that USA is thought to have a higher SIDS rate than other civilized countried exactly because of their tradition to put babies in separate rooms. AAP suggests room-sharing for that reason, too.
