Sharing room with newborn baby

Hello everyone. My husband and I live in a one bedroom apartment in Glendale. The rent is $1600. For now we cant move out of here for several reasons. Now I am 6 weeks pregnant and I am worried is it ok to share the bedroom with newborn baby?? Has anyone done that?

    It’s actually recommended to keep baby in their own bed in your room for at least 6 months. It helps with the prevention of SIDS. My 5 month old is still in my room, easier to wake up and grab her to nurse at night. My 2 year old slept in the room with with me until she was 18 months.

    We shared until 8 months. It’s technically recommended for the first year. I had a bassinet in our room that baby slept in. If you’re thinking longer than a few months I’d recommend a crib or minicrib

    I think a year is the most. I will definitely buy a crib

    Definitely do what is best for you and your family, only reason I had my daughter in my room for so long is because we were living with family and she had to be with us. As soon as my 5 month old is finished breast feeding I will be putting her in the room with my 2 year old.

    Do what works for your family, it may take trying a few sleeping arrangements to find out what that is but, agree with the above comments - it's recommended babes be in the room with you. If you have a bassinet and you end up needing to put babe in the living room at night, that may work too.
